Multiple sources are reporting that LSU freshman tight end Arik Gilbert is considering transferring out of the football program. The former five-star prospect from Marietta, GA is reportedly homesick and missed practice on Monday.

Gilbert has started in all eight of LSU's games this season, catching 35 receptions for 368 yards and two touchdowns.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Ed O has completely lost control of this program and his players. Clearly tehre is no confidence in the coaching staff or the future of the program.

College football has created an environment that makes it acceptable to quit. At some point this year the option to opt out should have expired at some point.

Not "college football". Society and the SJW culture that LSU Athletics embraces has created this environment.

Didn't Nick Saban lead the SJW Cultures march for his team. Maybe people like you created the Culture since it bothers you so much.

He’s not homesick, he’s sick of losing. If he were the former then you fly in his mama/auntie/grandma for the week.

A week-long visit from a relative doesn't cure homesickness.

The same that happens to any program that loses that has to replace 19 starters, six first round picks, all of it starting receivers from the beginning of this year, its starting quarterback, and had to replace to coordinators (one and head coach, the other is an offensive coordinator for the Panthers). Personally I think Gilbert is a good athlete but tight ends don't change the gsme in college.

Arik is one of the few elite Superstars left on this team. I would hate to lose this kid.

How can anyone downvote this? Multiple individuals and the team as a whole have quite mid-season. College football is becoming unlikeable and unwatchable due to soft arse privileged college football players.

Can’t really blame the kid. It’s a weird year to be a college football player, specifically a freshman. You hear all of these stories about how great it is, and now due to COVID he’s practically trapped in his dorm room and doesn’t get to enjoy college. Doesn’t help the state of the team right now and the fact that he gets to see Kyle Pitts highlights at Florida being used like Gilbert should be being used as. Whatever he ends up doing, he’s going to have a hell of a career. Hope he rides this storm out.

Is Kyle Pitts a true freshman? Does Kyle Pitts have a true freshman throwing him the football?
