Multiple sources are reporting that LSU senior tight end Jamal Pettigrew has entered the NCAA transfer portal and is expected to finish his college career at another school.

Pettigrew is a former four-star prospect from Saint Augustine High School in New Orleans but only recorded two catches for 17 yards in his LSU career.

Pettigrew missed all of 2018 with an ACL injury.

Seems like the guy has been at LSU forever now.

He’s a good player, it’s just Arik unfortunately is one of those exceptionally rare talents. Jamal will turn some heads wherever he ends up.

His boy problems are his slow feet, he seems to be a willing blocker and decent pass catcher.

Best chance for him to have major starting time. I guess Arik Gilbert was the last straw.

Last straw is appropriate assessment? Think not........Unfortunate for him, ALOT of younger talent ahead of him!

Great talent out of HS. He ACL tear was a huge setback. Wish him the very best of success wherever he lands.

Something Les Miles could never do...take seniority out of depth chart decisions.

Hate to see it. I think he could have gotten some touches. I wish him luck

Little late huh? Not much time to work with a team and learn a playbook

Pettigrew missed all of 2018 with an ACL injury. Probably a big reason for getting buried on the depth chart. Anyways, best of luck to him.

Best wishes to him. Imagine being the sixth or seventh option after coming in with his resume has to be grating to him. Hope he finds a team and gets some peace.

Looked like he was ready for NFL in the spring game 2 years ago.

So much promise when he came in. It just never materialized. Good luck to him in the future!

Was good enough to be on what many call the greatest college football team ever last year. He didn’t contribute if you look at his stats but who knows what other ways he might have contributed? He’ll have that distinction for the rest of his life. LSU was lucky to have him; it wasn’t that long ago, the Tigers had trouble getting N.O. players.
