Breaking News: LSU Tigers Confirm In Final Stage Discussion To Sign Top Talented Defensive Lineman in the Transfer Porta

Football at LSU: The Tigers will welcome the top defensive lineman via the Transfer Portal.
Simeon Barrow Jr., a transfer from Michigan State, will make his Bayou Bengals debut this weekend; it’s a crucial trip for LSU.

Prospective targets are stacking up as Brian Kelly and the LSU Tigers continue to scour the NCAA Transfer Portal for interior defensive line depth.

Now, according to On3’s Pete Nakos, another guest is anticipated in Baton Rouge this weekend.

Simeon Barrow Jr., a defensive lineman for Michigan State and the top-ranked uncommitted player in the portal, will be in town on Sunday to play LSU.

After entering the portal on Thursday, Barrow immediately rose to the top of the competition for his job; reports suggested the Tigers might be interested in signing the Spartan transfer.

A visit was planned after a few hours on the portal, with both parties confirming a convenient time. Bo Davis and company will be bringing their top transfer target, Barrow, to LSU for his initial visit.

Barrow played four seasons for Michigan State. Now that he’s looking for a new place to play his final season of eligibility, LSU is getting involved early in the transfer process and will be feeding him well during his ordeal.

34 games played, 30 starts, 110 career tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, two interceptions, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and two blocked and goals were all recorded by Barrow.

In addition, LSU welcomed Indiana defensive lineman Philip Blidi to Baton Rouge last week as he makes his way through a crowded recruiting class.

The Other Springtime Guest: Indiana’s Philip Blidi

One of the more sought-after transfers on the web, Blidi, stopped by to see Brian Kelly and company last week before continuing his tour. After his journey to Washington, he paid a visit to LSU. From there, On3 reports that he was scheduled to visit Oklahoma on April 19, but he has already canceled the trip.

According to people acquainted with Blidi’s recruiting, LSU, Auburn, and Washington are still the universities to keep an eye on. Long before the spring window opened, LSU made the graduate transfer available.

With one year of eligibility left, the veteran lineman is hoping to get into a situation where he can win a title and improve his draft stock.

Blidi had originally planned to visit Arizona State prior to his trip to LSU, but he canceled that trip and instead scheduled the midweek visit to Baton Rouge.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound player played for Texas Tech for three seasons before joining the Indiana Hoosiers. He played in 34 games for the Red Raiders, recording 39 tackles, 6 tackles for a loss, and 2 sacks.

Blidi made 12 appearances, 11 of which were starts, for Indiana in 2023. He recorded 30 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 2 quarterback hurries, and 1 pass breakup.

Though there have been some rumors that Auburn might be the team to beat in this match, LSU will keep pursuing him as the decision date draws near.
