Officially in the transfer portal 🙏🏽— Mannie Netherly (@yovng_netherly) August 26, 2019
Netherly played in 11 games and recorded three tackles during his sophomore season.
Coming out of Crosby, Texas, he was a consensus four-star recruit in the 2017 recruiting class.
Netherly was not listed when LSU released its depth chart for the Tigers' opening game against Georgia Southern.
Instead, freshman Cordale Flott backed up senior Kristian Fulton.
"We're really, really impressed with Cordale Flott," coach Ed Orgeron said when asked about LSU's depth at cornerback. "I think Cordale Flott has separated himself. If he had to start for us right now, we feel comfortable putting him in."
LSU listed three freshmen at the other cornerback spot: Derek Stingley Jr., Jay Ward and Raydarious Jones, who has dealt with a few injuries and is "not ready to go right now," Orgeron said.
Stingley will start.
"We really like those young guys," Orgeron said. "We feel strong at corner."
