WR Giles announces he will transfer to LSU
(TSX / STATS) -- Former Texas Tech wide receiver Jonathan Giles has decided to transfer to LSU, he announced on his Twitter feed.
Giles caught 69 passes for 1,158 yards and 13 touchdown passes last season as a sophomore. He will sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer regulations and has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
"First and foremost, I would like to thank my family and everyone who has helped me throughout this whole recruiting process," Giles said. "I would also like to thank all the colleges who has given me the opportunity to continue my football and education career. The relationship I have made with the coaches will stay with me for a lifetime."
Giles prospered last season with the Red Raiders by being the favorite target of quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, who elected to enter the NFL draft and was the 10th overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Giles chose LSU over Florida State and Oregon.
