Arik Gilbert, a former five-star recruit who spent his freshman campaign at LSU, is mulling a return to the Tigers after nixing his plan to transfer to Florida.

The tight end from Marietta, Ga., recently re-visited the LSU campus, where he met with Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron.

"(He) did come. We had a very good meeting," Orgeron said Tuesday night, according to Glenn Guilbeau of the Lafayette Daily Advertiser. "There has been no decision. Everybody was happy to see him.

"We checked with compliance to make sure that everything that we were doing was on the up and up. We could meet him. He could come talk to us. He left. He hasn't made a decision yet. He hasn't told us anything yet. I think it's still up in the air, but it was a very positive day when he came in."

Gilbert left LSU in December before the Tigers played their regular-season finale and bowl game. The 19-year-old announced at the end of January he was transferring to the Gators, but Gilbert didn't enroll and backed out of his commitment one month later.

He recorded 35 receptions for 368 yards while with LSU during his debut season. Gilbert remains in the transfer portal as he contemplates his next move.
