Former Pontotoc standout center Cole Smith has transferred from LSU to Mississippi State.

An MSU spokesman confirmed that Smith will begin practicing with the Bulldogs as a walk-on on Friday, but is ineligible to play this fall due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be placed on scholarship beginning in January.

Smith played a total of 12 offensive snaps for the Tigers last season in wins over Ole Miss and Rice. The 6-foot-3, 285-pounder entered the transfer portal in late June.

Smith’s father, Brent, lettered as an offensive lineman at Mississippi State from 1993-96 and played nine seasons in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars after being drafted in the third round.
