WVU Lands LSU Transfer TE Kole Taylor



WVU has landed transfer TE Kole Taylor (6-foot-7, 228-pounds) from LSU. Taylor comes to Morgantown with two years of eligibility remaining.

Taylor has three years and 32 games of experience coming with him from LSU. However, only seven of those 32 games were starts, and just 17 career catches for 159 yards and just one touchdown.

He was a three star recruit of LSU’s class of 2020 and made two of his starts at tight end that season. Prior to committing to LSU in 2020 he was being pursued by 26 schools including WVU, who offered him at the time.

He comes from Grand Junction, Colorado and was described as a natural pass-catcher on LSU’s website.

WVU has been looking for a tight end in the transfer portal since Mike O’Laughlin entered the portal earlier this month. O’Laughlin had been considering retirement after suffering his third season ending ACL tear earlier this season.
