On Monday, the NCAA transfer portal officially opened for the first 45-day window,
which will run through January before another window opens up following spring practice.
It was a big day around college football, and ahead of the festivities,
Brian Kelly addressed his team’s portal strategy this offseason. Last year’s offseason featured a transfer-heavy haul as Kelly looked to quickly turn the roster around.
but you can expect a different approach this time around. On Sunday, Kelly discussed the way the Tigers hope to use the portal.
“They have got to be the right fit first,” Kelly said on Sunday.
“They have to recognize the value of an education from LSU.
They have to have the right traits. We are not just open for business. We’re not just putting a sign up saying, hey,
we are going to take whoever. They have to be the right fit. I prefer that they are from the State of Louisiana if we can find them.
And then we are going to address needs based upon how that freshman class marries into it by the particular needs by position class.
