New basketball recruit-from wafb.com



Scotlandville Magnet basketball star Brian Bridgewater announced Wednesday that he will be attending LSU. His announcement was a surprise to many after reports Tuesday night said he would not be playing basketball for the Tigers.

"We are excited about the addition of Brian Bridgewater to the LSU basketball program," said LSU men's basketball head coach Johnny Jones. "With his versatility because of his size and strength, his ability to play inside and out will be an added dimension that will allow us flexibility on both ends of the floor offensively and defensively. It is always great to get student-athletes from championship caliber programs. He is part of a wonderful family, including his Mom (Debra) and his older brother (Brad) who had a very good career at LSU."

The 6'5, 220 pound senior is considered to be a 3-star power forward. He picked LSU over the likes of Arizona, Baylor, Marquette, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Bridgewater joins a talented 2013 class that includes Jarrell Martin (5-star PF), Jordan Mickey (4-star PF), John Odo (3-star C) and Tim Quarterman (4-star PG). Darcy Malone, a 7' Center from Australia, has committed to LSU but is yet to sign a national letter-of-intent.
