Mason Lunsford

As promised by Brian Kelly, he has continued to scour the transfer portal to uncover the best prospects available.

Former Maryland offensive lineman Mason Lunsford has decided to transfer to LSU.

The 6-foot-5, 305 pounder will arrive this summer and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Lunsford started all but one game over the previous two seasonsfor the Terrapins. Nearly all (96%) of his reps have been at left guard. He does have a little flexibility to play elsewhere, possibly at tackle, but he is scheduled to get a long look at guard for the Tigers.

An outstanding pass blocker, the former three-star prospect in the 2019 class chose Maryland over offers from Air Force, Army, Virginia and UMass. Since he entered the transfer portal, Lunsford fielded offers from Houston, Arkansas, James Madison, LSU, Buffalo, Louisville and Charlotte

Arkansas offensive coordinator Dan Enos, who coached Lunsford at Maryland, was at one time thought to have given the Razorbacks the inside track.

More transfer additions are expected for LSU with at least one more offensive lineman to add depth.

Interestingly, former LSU offensive tackle Marcus Dumervil has transferred from the Tigers to Maryland.
