LSU sophomore cornerback Kavahra Holmes is leaving the football team, according to a tweet he sent out Monday afternoon.
Its been great LSU, but its a new start of my life.. Thanks to all the coaches and fam here! DBU i will hold it down! Yall remember that— LSU FBALL #36 (@kavahraholmes) March 31, 2014
LSU Sports Information Director Jake Terry confirmed that the account is in fact Holmes’, but could not give any further information at the time.
Associate Athletic Director Michael Bonnette tweeted confirmation that Holmes would be leaving the program.
Holmes did not record a statistic during the 2013 season, but did receive playing time against Mississippi State.
The Breaux Bridge, La., native was arrested last year for a fight near Broussard Hall on campus. Holmes was arrested and issued a misdemeanor summons for simple battery.
If Holmes were to transfer from LSU, it would be the third Tiger in recent weeks to announce a move, following quarterback Stephen Rivers and kicker James Hairston.
