Trey Quinn to transfer, gives heartfelt goodbye to LSU

Former Louisiana high school star Trey Quinn has announced that he is leaving the LSU football program.

The LSU Tigers lost their second wide receiver this offseason on Tuesday, as Trey Quinn announced that he is transferring from the program.

Quinn arrived at LSU with high expectations after setting a national career receiving yards record during a prolific high school career at Barbe High School (Lake Charles, La.). The 6-foot-1 sophomore saw his playing time diminish in 2015, however, and was passed up on the depth chart by freshman Tyron Johnson.

As expected, Quinn has been graceful in his exit, posting the following statement on his Twitter account:

“I would like to send a special thank you to Louisiana State University and the opportunity they provided me to receive a quality education while playing football. To the coaches and players, it’s been a blessing to have built relationships with each and every one of y’all. And to the fans, I want to thank you for your continued support and love y’all show. But for now, I have to follow the path the Lord has set out for me. I’m glad I can say I was an LSU Tiger. Forever LSU”

In two seasons with the Tigers, Quinn recorded 22 receptions for 276 receiving yards. Fellow sophomore wide receiver John Diarse transferred to TCU in January.
