After entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal and announcing on Twitter that he was leaving, Scott Lashley has made his new school official. The former University of Alabama offensive lineman will attend Mississippi State University next fall.
He will enter his redshirt senior year as a Bulldog and will be immediately eligible to play, as he has his degree.

A native of West Point, Miss., Lashley was a four-star in Alabama’s 2016 signing class.
He was a reserve at right tackle for three seasons – redshirted his freshman year – seeing action in 19 career games. Lashley logged a combined 136 snaps at right tackle in 2018 and 2019, including 58 snaps last year. The 6-foot-7, 307-pounder was one of a few guys in the race to replace the departed Jedrick Wills. With Lashley at Mississippi State, the Tide will look elsewhere at right tackle to start spring practice as it expects to have a strong line.
He was on two Southeastern Conference title teams and a College Football Playoff National Championship team in 2017.
Mike Leach gets a solid transfer with Lashley coming home.
