LSU senior safety Eric Monroe has entered the NCAA transfer portal, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

As a graduate transfer, he would be eligible to play elsewhere immediately in 2020 if he does not return to the Tigers.

Monroe played in 29 games over the last three seasons with LSU, including 12 games with the undefeated national champions in 2019.

He registered 21 career tackles with one tackle for loss and two passes defensed.

The Houston native was a four-star signee in the 2016 recruiting class, ranked as the No. 3 safety in the nation and the No. 55 player overall by the 247Sports Composite.
