LSU basketball announced it would be adding forward Jeremy Combs for the 2017-18 season. As a graduate transfer, this will be his only season of playing eligibility.

The 6-foot-7 transfer out of North Texas is already familiar with some names in the Tigers’ program, as he played a total of three seasons under assistant coach Tony Benford, who also came to Baton Rouge via UNT.

Last season, Combs missed 16 games - including the last 12 games of the season- because of an injury that kept him sidelined. He averaged 10.2 points and 6.4 rebounds.

His sophomore year was much brighter though, and he received second-team all-Conference USA honors with team highs in both points (14.9), and rebounds (10.5). Combs was also named runner-up for C-USA with 10.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per contest.

He will join a signing class consisting of guard Daryl Edwards, Galen Alexander, Brandon Rachal and forward Mayan Kirr.

In order for Combs to find a permanent place on the squad, LSU will need to make some changes to allow room for the hopeful transfer.
