Suspended LSU wide receiver Dee Anderson has reportedly entered the transfer portal after missing the entire 2019 season.

Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported the news Tuesday. Anderson will be eligible to transfer as a graduate, meaning he will not have to sit out the 2020 season. LSU head coach Ed Orgeron suspended Anderson over conditioning issues in September.

Anderson came to LSU as a 4-star recruit out of Texas in 2016 after missing his senior high school season because of eligibility issues. Listed at 6'6" and 229 pounds, Anderson never found a regular role in LSU's offense and recorded just 27 receptions for 392 yards and one touchdown in his career.

While there is no word on where Anderson may transfer, he received interest from Alabama, Boise State and a number of other high-profile schools during his recruitment. It's possible he'll look to return to his Texas roots and shouldn't have trouble finding a program willing to take a chance on someone with his considerable physical tools.

LSU hasn't missed a beat without Anderson, with quarterback Joe Burrow winning the Heisman Trophy and leading one of the nation's most explosive aerial offenses to the College Football Playoff.
