Sophomore receiver Trey Quinn tweeted his intention to transfer Tuesday afternoon.
In two seasons with the Tigers Quinn had 21 receptions for 230 yard, but saw a major drop in his production as a sophomore, logging just four receptions. Quinn had his struggles with drops and concussions during his two seasons with the Tigers, and was locked into competing with sophomore Tyron Johnson for the No. 3 spot behind Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural.
A composite four-star recruit coming out of Barbe High School, Quinn set the national high school record for career receiving yards, amassing over 6,500 total yards.

One of the best receivers and even better person. Sad to see you leave but can't wait to see what the future holds. BALL OUT !! @treyquinn8— Anthony Jennings (@JENNINGSWINNING) February 16, 2016
Quinn did not mention where he was transferring. During his recruitment he was courted heavily by Clemson and could opt to join former coordinator Chad Morris at SMU. And of course there's FCS power McNeese State right there in Lake Charles.
The departure of Quinn, along with Diarse earlier in the off-season, means the Tigers will be a little thin at receiver during spring practice in terms of game experience. However, with Dupre and Dural returning, along with a bevy of sophomores and early enrolled freshman, the departures should not be too much of a problem.
