|Last Chance U
Netflix’s Last Chance U turns the spotlight on the players of Laney College in Oakland, California led by Coach John Beam. Arriving at Laney in 2017, Kentrell Pierce became the Eagles’ defensive back in the 2019 season 17. Pierce had his own share of hardships, but his prospects improved at Laney. Of course, fans of the show wonder where Kentrell Pierce is now. Is he still at Laney or did he transfer? Our Kentrell Pierce wiki has the answers.
Kentrell Pierce’s Family
Kentrell D. Pierce was born on September 4, 1996. He is a native of Harvey, Illinois, but has also lived in Dolton.

Kentrell Pierce’s Football Career
Kentrell Pierce played football at Harold L. Richards High School in Oak Lawn, Illinois. According to his Facebook, he was set to play at the University of Arizona when he graduated.
However, he came to California in 2017, where he enrolled at Laney College. The DB was part of the 2019 Eagles roster that was filmed for Last Chance U.
Laney College has a 90% transfer and graduation rate thanks to Coach John Beam’s efforts. He develops top prospects who are wanted by other colleges and the NFL.
Pierce, too, found a better opportunity after a great season at Laney. In February 2020, Lincoln University announced that it had signed Kentrell Pierce to their 2020 squad.
However, the pandemic has stalled both education and sports, so Lincoln hasn’t updated its roster yet. It’s unlikely that Pierce saw any playtime at Lincoln yet. Meanwhile, his social media shows he is spending time with his family and hyping Last Chance U.
Our @LUL1onsFB team has another addition to our 2020 squad and would like to welcome CB/DB Kentrell Pierce from Laney College in California via Harold L. Richards HS in Illinois
