Former Texas Tech defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko announced Monday he will transfer to LSU.

Fehoko was a two-year starter for the Red Raiders and the No. 51 recruit in the ESPN 300 in 2015. He took five official visits this spring and chose LSU over Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss and Louisville.

He'll have to sit out the 2017 season as a transfer, but Fehoko will have two seasons of eligibility with the Tigers.

Fehoko said the opportunity to play in the SEC and play for head coach Ed Orgeron, whose specialty is defensive linemen, made LSU an ideal fit.
