LSU has dismissed linebacker Donte Starks from the football team for violation of team rules, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron announced Friday. 

Starks, who was suspended by the team earlier this year, played in three games during LSU's national championship run as a true freshman for the Tigers. He signed with LSU in 2019 as a four-star recruit out of John Ehret. 

The Tigers will be looking for other linebackers to step up this season after loosing Patrick Queen, Jacob Phillips and Michael Divinity to the NFL. LSU will likely turn to graduate transfer Jabril Cox, and returning contributors Marcel Brooks, Damone Clark, Micah Baskerville and converted wide receiver Devonta Lee at the position.
