Just two weeks away from the start of USF’s spring football practice, redshirt sophomore linebacker Trey Laing announced that he will be pursuing other opportunities by entering the transfer portal.

A three-star prospect out of Godby High School in Tallahassee, Laing spurned offers from Washington State and Rutgers to sign with USF, culminating a six month period where he served as one of the vocal leaders/recruiters for the Bulls’ 2018 recruiting class.
Redshirting as a true freshman, he appeared in four games this past fall where he was credited with six tackles.
Notably, he becomes the first player to transfer out of the program since Jeff Scott’s arrival back in early December. Scott made it clear during his first team meeting that if you decide to enter the portal, there’s no coming back.

We wish Trey all the best wherever he decides to go.
