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.

Honestly - I didn't know John Emery was even still eligible.

Didn’t realize he still had eligibility. He was always good for a couple splash plays a year, specifically in Bama games.

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.

Dang I was so glad we were able to recruit him and it just did not pan out but I do wish him the best for sure.

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.

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!

Probably a solid number 2 behind Ryan Perilloux on the “what could have been” list at LSU.

Do you even Cecil Collins, bro?

Collins would be No 1 on that list. I never saw anything that impressive about Perriloux when he played.

Perriloux in 2007 looked great every time he touched the ball spelling for Flynn. 51/75, 8 TDs, 2 Ints with 207 rushing yards and 2 TDs. Got his first start in the 2007 SEC Championship game when Flynn got hurt and looked more than solid considering the circumstances. He was going to be something special. Our offense was going to have a legit weapon at QB. Instead we got Jarrett Lee and Jordan Jefferson.
