The Advocate's Ross Dellenger reports that academically ineligible LSU redshirt sophomore DT Travonte Valentine visited with LSU's coaching staff on Friday.
Valentine is not yet eligible academically, but he is close. Right now, the 6-foot-3, 345-pounder is wrapping up his coursework at Mississippi Coast Community College. He needs to pass two more classes before he could potentially join the Tigers. The former four-star recruit initially hooked up with LSU during the 2014 cycle, but academics plagued him -- he did not play that season because he failed to gain eligibility from the SEC -- and an unrelated violation of team rules led to his dismissal from the program last April. A credit to both HC Les Miles and Valentine himself for bridging that gap from dismissal to (potential) enrollment. There isn't always a need to burn bridges to the ground. Valentine will need to keep his head on straight once he rejoins Miles' crew, but if he can do that, he has the talent to make an impact on the field this season. Jul 17 - 1:10 PM
