Multiple sources report that LSU running back John Emery Jr. has entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.

The St. Rose, La. native was a highly recruited prospect out of Destrehan High School but dealt with many ups and downs during his five-year career at LSU.

He was a true freshman on the 2019 National Championship team but missed his junior season in 2021 due to eligibility issues. Most recently, Emery Jr. suffered a season-ending injury against Florida during his fifth-year senior year in 2023.

He played in 37 games over the last five years and rushed for a total of 1062 yards and 14 touchdowns.

I wish the kid good luck! He 's had a really tough career at LSU and deserves another shot to try to have a good to decent season, so he can have a decent shot at playing pro ball. He has been hit by all kinds of injuries in his career at LSU, so, I hope he can turn it around at wherever he goes.

He has a ton of potential, but every year something would keep him from breaking out. I wish him the best of luck wherever life takes him.

Thanks for being a Tiger, John Emery.

Dude was absolutely electric at times. If he can clean up the mental errors and take what is there, he could be very good.

Best of luck to him!

When you fear the competition the competition is all we need. Kids are cashing in on the LSU brand with NIL, elsewhere. “We are bringing in a kid from LSU, here is the bag we are giving them!”

I didn't realize he had eligibility left.

I thought he's going to try his chances in the draft

Most shocking part of this is that he’s a grad transfer. If true, happy the kid got his degree and best of luck to him.

What the hell are you talking about, there are many masters degrees that aren’t research based. I got 2 graduate degrees from LSU and knew many people who were getting masters without doing novel research.
