STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Former LSU offensive lineman Cole Smith is transferring to Mississippi State.

Smith redshirted his true freshman season in 2018, when he appeared in two games as a backup.

Smith played high school football at Pontotoc. His father, Brent, is a former MSU offensive lineman.

An MSU spokesman says Smith will walk on this semester. Smith will be able to practice with the Bulldogs but will have to sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules.
