BATON ROUGE, La. (WTVA) - Pontotoc's Cole Smith signed with LSU's football program in December 2017, but he could be leaving Baton Rouge.

247Sports.com reports that the offensive lineman has entered the NCAA transfer portal after speaking with head coach Ed Orgeron.

Smith is projected to be the Tigers' backup center this season. He could return to LSU, but entering the portal allows other programs to have contact with him.
