Texas Tech WR Jonathan Giles Transferring To LSU

Texas Tech’s 2016 leading receiver Jonathan Giles is leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference, as he announced his decision to transfer LSU on Monday.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound 1,000-yard receiver elected to join head coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers over Ohio State, Purdue, MSU, Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisville, Florida State, and Oregon, according to Chase Goodbread of College Football 24/7.

Giles will be required to sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules, but he will have two years of eligibility entering the 2018 season.

The Tigers newest receiver recorded 69 receptions for 1,158 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in his sophomore season, and was quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ top target in their final season together in Lubbock.

Giles will join former Red Raiders defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko in Baton Rouge, as he announced his decision to transfer to LSU last month.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound defensive lineman amassed 38 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, and one interception in his first two seasons in the Big 12, and will also have two years of eligibility with the Tigers starting in 2018.
