LSU safety Kenan Jones has entered the transfer portal. Jones tweeted the news Wednesday afternoon.

I have officially entered my name into the NCAA transfer portal. I want to thank Louisiana State University, and most importantly my teammates for allowing me to be part of such a program. My recruitment is now officially open!

Jones was a highly touted reciever out of Berwick when he signed with the Tigers in 2018. He was listed as a receiver his freshman year. The 6-foot-3, 207-pound defensive back appeared in two games this season but did not record any stats.

He becomes the second LSU player this week to announce his departure from the program as backup running back Lanard Fournette left the team this week.
