According to the Baton Rouge Advocate's Ross Dellenger, LSU has "received assurances" from the SEC that JUCO transfer DT Travonte Valentine will be deemed eligible for the 2016 season.
The 6-foot-3, 345-pounder, currently at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, began his career at LSU before being dismissed as a freshman for violating team rules. In recent weeks, Valentine has traveled to Baton Rouge to meet with staff members, including DL coach Ed Orgeron. Now a redshirt sophomore, Valentine has three years of eligibility remaining. Projections don't come much cleaner than slotting Valentine, the No. 34 overall player in his recruiting class (247Sports), into new DC Dave Aranda’s 3-4 defense as the head-knocking nose tackle. He'll have to stay out of trouble for that plan to work out, however. In between LSU and MGCCC, Valentine was dismissed from Arizona Western College. He'll be on a short leash. May 21 - 1:09 PM
