LSU Men's Basketball State of Affairs & Recent Offer List

The Men's Basketball program under the first year under new head coach Matt McMahon was not met with the same success as Women's coach Kim Mulkey in year one. The Bayou Bengals finished (14-19) and a meager (2-16) in SEC play. Leaving a lot to be desired and many restless fans wanting answers.

That has not stopped him from bringing in a good signing class for 2023, ranking 8th in the SEC. The class only consisted of 2 members and was headlined by PF Corey Chest Eleanor McMain High School in New Orleans.. At 6'8"-210 the Louisiana brings great length and is solid on the boards and is an all around defender. Chest is a Top 100 talent and ranked as high as No. 76 by 247 Sports. He is also a high energy guy and will definitely be someone who can help this team improve from their abysmal ways from a season ago.

The other signee is SG ,Mike Williams, out of Bishop Walsh School in Baltimore, MD. Williams is 6'3"-169 and is also in 247 Sports Top 100 as he sits at No. 92. He chose the Bayou Bengals over Clemson, Syracuse and Wake Forest. When Coach McMahon talked about Williams he described him as a "leader and a winner". He also raved about his 3-point shooting and off the dribble scoring as well as his defensive prowess.

Sticking to the high school ranks LSU Football just received a commitment from TE Trey'dez Green who is the No. 56 overall player in 247 composite rankings in football and will be a dual sport athlete. At 6'7"-240 and an outstanding athlete he will be a force for Matt McMahon come the 2024 season.

On to the transfer portal there was a common theme and it seems to ring true in the major sports around campus and it is "coming home" to play for the Tigers. So far, McMahon has gotten 3 players to return home. There is the former Dunham School teammates from Baton Rouge, Jordan Wright the Vanderbilt transfer and Carlos Stewart the Santa Clara Transfer. The crown jewel of the transfer class is Jalen Cook who originally came to LSU in 2019 and then went to Tulane to now be coming home to LSU. From out of state they added some tremendous length and a big scoring threat in 7'0"-245 C Will Baker the once Texas Longhorn and recent Nevada transfer .

Jalen Cook 6'0"- 205 lbs Tulane transfer - Averaged 19.9 PPG, 2.9 REB With 4.9 AST and 45.2 FG %

Carlos Stewart 6'1"-185 lbs Santa Clara transfer - Averaged 15.2 PPG,2.4 REB With 2.3 AST and 44 FG %

Jordan Wright 6'6"-220 lbs Vanderbilt transfer - Averaged 10.6 PPG , 5.1 REB With 2.1 AST and 39.8 FG %

Will Baker 7'0"-245 LBS Nevada transfer Averaged 19.9 PPG, 5.2 REB With .8 AST and 56 FG %

The Tigers also have their sights set on Joseph Girard III out of Syracuse . The 6'1"-190 lbs guard averaged 16.4 PPG and 3.0 AST while shooting 40% and an impressive 38.1 % from beyond the arc. Girard has narrowed his choices down to and will pick between LSU and Clemson.
