Virginia linebacker West Weeks decided to transfer to LSU for the 2022 campaign. He spent the ’21 season as a true freshman and played in 10 contests, contributing 31 tackles, one sack and defending five passes. His season high came against Pittsburgh where he recorded eight tackles. He suffered a broken leg in the season finale Nov. 27 against Virginia Tech.
The 6-foot-2, 220 pounder out of Watkinsville, Ga. can run very well, locates ball quickly, delivers knock out hits and rarely takes a false step as he diagnoses a play as it develops. He played strong strong, outside linebacker, quarterback and wide receiver in high school.
His younger brother Whit (6-2, 200) is a three-star linebacker prospect, also out of Watkinsville, Ga., who has already received an offer from LSU for the 2023 class. His father David was a team captain and All-SEC offensive line at Georgia in 1995.
