“We are happy to have Naz Reid joining our LSU basketball family,” said Coach Wade. “He is a player that brings a combination of strength, length and a shooting touch with him that will have an immediate impact on our program next season. He has the type of game that will easily transfer to college play when he arrives at LSU. We look forward to working with him and adding to his game to prepare him for the next level.”
Before Reid, LSU announced on Wednesday the signing of two other members of the 2018 class, Ja’Vonte Smart and Darius Days. As of now, the incoming trio sets LSU as the fourth best recruiting class, according to 247.
