Former LSU 5-star CB Eli Ricks projected to pick Alabama as transfer destination

The LSU Tigers have had quite a rough two seasons since winning a national championship. 2020 and 2021 were both non-competitive teams, off-the-field issues and injuries plagued the team and let’s not forget the ongoing Ed Orgeron debacle.

Because of everything that has happened, some players have decided that it would be best to continue their collegiate career elsewhere. One of those players being former five-star cornerback from the class of 2020, Eli Ricks.

Ricks has very high upside, is very athletic and has been compared to Richard Sherman in his playing abilities. In his two seasons at LSU, Ricks has played a total of 14 games to date, and has amassed 31 tackles, a whopping five interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.

According to 247Sports expert Rusty Mansell, Alabama has a 100% chance of landing Ricks from the transfer portal. Ricks being in Tuscaloosa would have an immediate impact on the Crimson Tide, as the secondary will lose a few veterans to the NFL following the 2021 season.

Nothing has been made official, and there aren’t many updates available from Ricks, but Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow his journey through the transfer portal.
