Sophomore running back Tre Bradford entered his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal Wednesday afternoon as first reported by Matt Zenitz from al.com.
Bradford was stuck in the middle of a crowded running back room. Juniors Tyrion Davis-Price and John Emery figure to be LSU’s top options at running back and the Tigers are welcoming in a pair of highly touted backs in four-stars Armoni Goodwin (No. 7 at the position) and Corey Kiner (No. 10 at the position).
Bradford saw limited action in his freshman season, getting 10 carries for 58 yards and catching three passes for 13 yards. He caught a touchdown in the fourth quarter against Florida in LSU’s 37-34 upset win. But despite late season injuries to Emery and Davis-Price, Bradford couldn’t capitalize on a golden opportunity to earn more playing time and was playing behind walk on running back Josh Williams.
Bradford came to LSU via Lancaster, Texas and was a four-star prospect in the 2020 class. Bradford was ranked 130th overall in the 247 Composite and the No. 13 running back.
