Report: John Diarse to Transfer to TCU

The former LSU Tiger will spend his final two years of eligibility as a Horned Frog.

Several reports on Thursday indicate that former LSU wide receiver John Diarse will spend his two remaining years of eligibility as a Horned Frog. 

Diarse, a December graduate, is considered a graduate transfer, therefore he will not have to sit a year – he’ll be able to play for the Frogs next season. The former Tiger announced his decision to transfer on Dec. 31.  

The Monroe, Louisiana native played in all 12 of LSU’s regular season games, including five starts. This past season, Diarse caught 13 passes for 137 yards for the Tigers. In 2014, he hauled in 15 catches for 275 yards and three touchdowns, including a 36 yards score in the team’s comeback victory against Wisconsin.

The former 4-star recruit attended Neville High School with TCU freshman standout receiver KaVontae Turpin, who caught his first varsity touchdown on a pass from Diarse.

As a recruit, the 6-foot-1, 209-pound wide receiver was offered by TCU, Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi State, among others.
