LSU lost its ninth player from the 2022 roster to the NCAA transfer portal Tuesday with the decision of sophomore offensive lineman Marcus Dumervil to leave the program.
“Thank you Coach O, Coach Kelly, and Coach Davis, and the entire football operations for helping me grow as a student athlete and as a person,” Dumervil said on his Twitter account in admiration of head coaches Ed Orgeron and Brian Kelly and position coach Brad Davis. “To the academic support staff, thank you for all of the countless hours of work.”
The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Dumervil, who said he has three of eligibility remaining, came into the LSU program heralded as a four-star prospect and nation’s No. 11 offensive tackle from St. Thomas Aquinas High in Lauderdale Lakes, Florida.
Things didn’t quite pan out for Dumervil who played in a total of 15 games during his career, including two starts against South Carolina and Arkansas in that span. He was expected to contend for playing time at either offensive tackle this season, but those positions were solidified by true freshmen Will Campbell and Emery Jones Jr.
Dumervil saw action this past season against Southern, New Mexico, Tennessee and UAB. He was also utilized as a tight end when the Tigers used an additional blocker in short yardage and goal-line situations.
