Another receiver is leaving LSU.
Trey Quinn, the highly recruited receiver out of Barbe, is transferring, he announced in a post on his Twitter account.
Quinn, a rising junior used little as a sophomore last season, finished his career with 22 catches for 276 yards. Quinn did not reveal in his post where he plans to transfer.
LSU lost receiver John Diarse last month. Diarse transferred to TCU.
Ranked as a top-10 receiver nationally in the 2014 class, Quinn began his rookie season as a starter for the Tigers, mostly at the slot receiver position and primarily as a run-blocker. He lost that job after a nightmarish game in an overtime loss to Alabama.
Quinn dropped two third-down passes late in that game that would have picked up first downs. He played sparingly at receiver the rest of the season and began his sophomore year as a reserve before the Texas Bowl on Dec. 29.

Quinn, a 6-foot, 197-pounder, caught a 46-yard pass from Brandon Harris in the Tigers’ rout over the Red Raiders. It was the longest catch of his career. Diarse had four catches for 45 yards in that bowl game as he and Quinn slid up the receiver pecking order with Travin Dural out with injury.
The Tigers hired a new receivers coach just two days ago, swiping Dameyune Craig from Auburn. Despite the departure of Quinn and Diarse, LSU has a host of receivers returning and entering the program, including junior Malachi Dupre, Dural, a senior, sophomore Tyron Johnson and junior D.J. Chark, a speedster who scored on an end-around in the bowl game.
LSU quarterbacks tweeted messages about Quinn after his announcement.
