BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU sophomore defensive tackle Siaki Ika is entering the transfer portal, a source has reportedly informed 247Sports.

According to Geaux247 reporter Shea Dixon, Ika met with Orgeron on Tuesday to discuss his playing time because he has seen diminished reps on the field now that the Tigers have shifted from a 3-4 defensive scheme to the 4-3 front defensive coordinator Bo Pelini runs.

The 6-foot-4, 340-pound nose tackle has a total of five tackles, with three of those credited as solo tackles, and one sack on the season. The sack came in LSU’s 41-7 rout of Vanderbilt.

Ika is a former four-star defensive tackle from Salt Lake City, Utah.
