Former LSU cornerback Kelvin Joseph entered the NCAA transfer portal twice, and on the second occasion in July he decided to leave.

After also considering Florida, Mississippi State, Maryland, Auburn and Grambling, the 2018 signee out of Scotlandville Magnet has chosen to transfer to Kentucky.

As a true freshman for the Tigers last season, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Joseph played in 11 games and recorded 12 tackles. He was rated as the nation’s 42nd best overall prospect and the seventh best safety overall before inking with LSU.

Joseph spent much of his time last season at cornerback but made his most significant contribution on special teams. His season high was a four-tackle performance against Ole Miss.

After sitting out the upcoming season, Joseph will enter 2020 in Lexington with three years of eligibility remaining.
