Former LSU wide receiver will play for the University of Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH (WAFB) - Former LSU wide receiver Avery Peterson is transferring to the University of Cincinnati according to a report from ESPN.

Peterson, the younger brother of former LSU All-American Patrick Peterson, leaves the program without a reception.

The wide receiver joins former Auburn and Ole Miss head coach Tommy Tuberville at Cincinnati. He is projected to be a target for quarterback Gunner Kiel, who backed out of his LSU commitment in 2012, drawing criticism from Les Miles on signing day.

Peterson was a 4-star recruit out of high school and had offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State and USC, among others.
