    Former SU cornerback Duce Chestnut commits to LSU



    Syracuse, N.Y. — Another former Syracuse football defensive back has found a new home in the new year.

    Ex-starting cornerback Duce Chestnut announced Sunday via Twitter he’s committed to Louisiana State University. He’s the second SU transfer to land at another Power Five school after safety Ja’Had Carter committed to Ohio State University earlier this week.

    Chestnut had 40 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup this season. He entered the transfer portal on Dec. 13 and did not play in the Pinstripe Bowl.

    The runner-up for ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2021, Chestnut was a freshman All-American and was one of the top-10 defensive backs in the transfer portal this cycle, according to 247Sports.
