BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Two names very familiar to LSU baseball fans decided to enter the transfer portal and have found new homes.

Brody Miller of the Athletic reported Friday, April 17 that pitcher Eric Walker and infielder Hal Hughes were looking elsewhere to continue their athletic careers.

Walker was a big part of the Tigers’ 2017 team that reached the CWS national championship series but has fought to regain form after Tommy John surgery. He chose to play at Oklahoma State.

Hughes was typically a very strong glove for LSU but his career batting average was below .200. He will play at Rice.
