As the 2022 football season begins, LSU Wire will be investigating every player who makes the Tigers’ roster.
In the preseason, each profile will cover where the player is from, how recruitment websites rated him after graduating from high school, and what role he will play for Brian Kelly this season.
Kelly has transformed this squad quite a bit in the few months since he arrived, and one of the main ways he’s done so is through the transfer portal. He added some of the top players out there, but one of them could fill an immediate need.
Miles Frazier arrives from Florida International in 2021 after a phenomenal season at left tackle, but he’s likely to step up to guard at Baton Rouge. He’s been one of the nation’s most sought-after transfers, but he’s not going to earn an entry-level job without a bit of pressure.

Overview of the depth map
As a two-star contender from New Jersey, Frazier didn’t have much recruiting interest. He chose FIU over offers from Buffalo, Central Michigan, Bowling Green and others, and he saw action in one game — a start — as a true freshman but ultimately took a redshirt year.
A redshirt freshman, he became a full-time starter, starting all 12 games in 2021 in left tackle. He received Freshman All-American honors as a result, and he had many options when he entered his name on the transfer portal after the season.
LSU needs to replace both of the Startgarden from last year, and it seems likely that Frazier could take on one of them along with East Tennessee State grad transfer Tre’Mond Shorts. But redshirt freshman Garrett Dellinger, who has also seen some starting reps at the guard this offseason, could be pushing Frazier.
Whether he starts or not, he brings tremendous depth to the team and the ability to play anywhere on the field. It’s hard to imagine him not starting games for this team sometime this fall.
