Out goes Naz Reid, but in comes Trendon Watford.
Will Wade and the Tigers landed a massive commitment on Monday from five-star class of 2019 power forward Trendon Watford out of Mountain Brook, Alabama. Watford is rated the No. 1 player in Alabama and the No. 4 power forward in America. He was also considering Memphis, Alabama and Indiana. LSU assistant coach Bill Armstrong deserves a ton of credit for his role in winning the Watford sweepstakes.
LSU still awaits the NBA Draft decisions from Skylar Mays, Marlon Taylor and Emmitt Williams, but right now things are looking very good for a program that looked almost dead and gone two months ago.
After a long and anticipated wait, Trendon Watford is Baton Rouge bound.
