LSU graduate transfer cornerback Terrence Alexander will report to the team on Monday, according to NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune.

Alexander announced in the spring he intended to transfer from Stanford to LSU once he graduated. He earned his degree last week, allowing him to follow through on transferring as a graduate.

Graduate transfers are not required by the NCAA to sit out a year so Alexander, who is a native of nearby New Orleans, is eligible to play for the Tigers this season.

Alexander played in one game before an injury cut his season short last year. He played 13 games in a backup role in 2016.

LSU has one starting spot open alongside All-America candidate Greedy Williams. Alexander expects to compete against sophomores Jontre Kirklin, Mannie Netherly and Kary Vincent. Kristian Fulton is also a contender but is under suspension by the NCAA.
