Virginia freshman linebacker West Weeks is transferring to LSU, he announced on social media on Saturday evening. 

Weeks, a 6'2", 220-pound inside linebacker from Watkinsville, Georgia, entered the transfer portal on January 3rd after appearing in 10 games this season for the Cavaliers as a true freshman. 

"To the University of Virginia, thank you," Weeks said. "To my coaches and teammates, thank you for the relationships that I will carry with me for the rest of my life." 

Weeks recorded 31 tackles, 15 of them solo tackles, and one sack. He had at least three tackles in each of Virginia's last five games and also tallied five passes defended this season. 

Weeks suffered a broken leg in the season finale against Virginia Tech on November 27th. 

Weeks is the ninth UVA football player to transfer to another program since the end of the season. 11 Cavaliers remain in the transfer portal and retain the option to return to Virginia.
