Defensive end Jordan Allen plans to transfer from LSU, tigerrag.com is reporting.

Allen told the website that he’s seeking his transfer and that LSU has given him a release to leave for any school outside of the Southeastern Conference.

Allen would be a fifth-year senior next season. He can transfer to a Football Bowl Subdivision school and play because he graduated in December.

An LSU spokesman declined to comment on the report.

Allen began last season as a starter but lost his job to Danielle Hunter after the third game of the year. He played in all 13 games and finished the season with 16 tackles and two sacks.

Allen played in a combined four games as a freshman and sophomore. A four-star prospect and a member of The Advocate’s Super Dozen, Allen left West Monroe High as the top defensive line prospect in the state.
