Lloyd stated in his announcement, “I’m here to announce that I will be entering my name into the transfer Portal I will not be attending Liberty University anymore … I appreciate Liberty for everything and I would like to thank my Dad For helping me and supporting me through my decision and I will like to thank my coaches for respecting my decisions. Also the man Above Jesus Christ for blessing me with the ability to play the game of football. – IT’S NOT OVER !!!”

Lloyd committed to Liberty in December 2018 out of Northwest Mississippi Community College. The 6’2″, 330 pound defensive lineman attended Meridian High School in Senatobia, Mississippi. He had numerous offers out of JUCO, including Bowling Green, FAU, Louisiana-Monroe, Troy and Western Kentucky.

In his first season on the field with the Flames in 2019, Lloyd fought through nagging injuries all season and played in just 4 games, preserving his redshirt season. He was expected to compete for playing time in 2020 as part of the two-deep on the defensive line.

Lloyd joins several others who have decided to transfer from Liberty this offseason, including Brandon Robinson, Waylen Cozad, Tayvion Land, and Kei’Trel Clark.
