Are LSU, Arkansas Swapping Defensive Players Now?

With second defensive player transferring from Tigers to Fayetteville it's now an even number changing schools

The path from Fayetteville to Baton Rouge apparently is going through the transfer portal this year ... wherever that's located.

Arkansas picked up the second defensive transfer of the year Sunday with former LSU cornerback Dwight McGlothern committing on an official visit.

McGlothern's Twitter feed had a flurry of activity late Sunday.

McGlothern, 6-2, 190, is the Hogs’ fourth incoming transfer for the current offseason and the second from LSU.

Defensive end Landon Jackson is already enrolled at Arkansas for the spring semester.

McGlothern was a four-star prospect out of Spring (Texas) Klein Oak in the Class of 2020.

He chose the Tigers over offers from Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M, USC and many others.

He was recruited to Fayetteville this time by third-year cornerbacks coach Sam Carter.
