LSU Tigers Land Dalton Beck For 2025


LSU Tigers coach Jay Johnson has picked up IUW hitter Dalton Beck who is expected to join the team in 2025.

Who is Beck?

Beck transferred to Incarnate Word during his junior year after playing for Grayson College and Kansas State. Last season, he showcased impressive stats for the Cardinals, appearing in 39 games with 39 starts.

Beck boasted a .348 batting average, a .707 slugging percentage, 12 doubles, one triple, 18 home runs, and 67 RBIs. As an outfielder, Beck could potentially fill the same position for LSU, providing a much-needed boost to their lineup after losing several players to the transfer portal.
