The LSU Tigers will be a little short of offensive lineman next year, with a scheduled returnee electing to transfer instead.

A native of Lindale, Georgia, Dodd played in six games last season, including one start, while appearing in 14 games over three years.

The 6-foot-4, 318-pound Dodd, who signed with the Tigers in 2013, plans to graduate in May, meaning he'll be able to transfer and play immediately this upcoming season without sitting out.
