LSU has a minimum of 5 scholarships available for 2013. My prediction is LSU signs 6 players for 2013, likely 4 post players, a point guard and a wing. The extra scholarship will come from at least one player going pro, or transferring due to a lack of playing time.

This list is based on various recruiting services and other sources and rumors I have heard. It is not definitive and will be changed numerous times over the next year. I welcome any news or comments that would be relative to this list.

Commitments: 5

Deng Deng (PF, 6-8, 215) Lee College, Baytown, TX and Australia. Will have 3 years of eligibility at LSU.

John Odoh (C, 6-10, 230) Hill College, TX. Former UNT signee with Johnny Jones. Will graduate from Hill in December and enroll at midterm. Will redshirt in the spring at LSU and have 2 years remaining to play.

Jordan Mickey (PF, 6-7, 210) Prime Prep, Dallas, TX. 4-star recruit ranked No. 38 in the country. Ohio State, LSU, SMU and Oklahoma State have all offered and are his final 4.
He is LSU wide receiver James Wright's brother.

Tim Quarterman (Combo guard, 6-5, 180) Savannah, Ga. Johnson HS. 4-star multi-purpose player that can play multiple positions, from PG to SF. Ranked No. 62 overall in the Rivals 150. Has many offers and has not announced a final listing. Reportedly took an official visit to LSU on Sept. 16.

Jarell Martin (PF, 6-9, 200) Madison Prep, Baton Rouge, 5-star forward ranked No. 10 in the country in the Rivals 150. No.11 ranked PF on Scout. Martin was somewhat of an unknown player that had a huge summer on the AAU circuit. Has offer from LSU. Also considering Oklahoma State, St. John's, UCLA, Alabama, Louisville and Texas A&M.


Dylan Johns (Center, 7-1, 220) England. Played in a summer development program at the Trent Internationale School in Sugarland, TX, but was never a student there. Got some exposure with Trent playing in some summer events. Played on England's U18 national team. Has played on some Spanish club teams. Only played basketball for 4 years. Lots of upside.

David Taylor (PG, 6-2) Germany: Son of former LSU star Derrick Taylor. Has the potential to be a high major recruit. Ranked as the No.13 player in Europe for the 2013 class by Read the following scouting report on him:
Euro stars

Keith Frazier (SG, 6-6, 192) Kimball H.S. Dallas; 5-star wing has a final list of LSU, Texas, Texas A&M, Memphis and SMU. Has taken no official visits and plans to be a spring signee.

Brian Bridgewater (SF/PF, 6-6, 220) Scotlandville, Baton Rouge, 3-star forward but has dropped out of the Rivals 150. Ranked as a 4-star on Scout and is the No.17 PF. Brother of former LSU basketball player Brad Bridgewater. Has an LSU offer. Also has offers from Oklahoma State and Baylor. Also considering Kentucky, Georgetown, Alabama, Arizona, Marquette, Oklahoma and Purdue. Also has an offer to play WR/TE for LSU. Could be a big decision for him, choosing which sport to play in college.

I feel like the recruiting services get basketball correct much more than football. Probably because it is less players. I hope we can land a legit big man.

With a good 2011-12 season this could be a special class.
Barber, Martin, Kingsley & Bridgewater

Perhaps it's just his philosophy, but Trent Johnson is very stingy with the offers. Even the higher level programs like North Carolina and Florida, seem to hand out scholarship offers like candy.

Or it could be that many of those offers are not legit.

FYI, Kingsley has offers from Arkansas, Tennessee, Florida, Ole Miss, Miss St, Memphis, San Fran and Tulane.

He's one of the Big 3 in 2013 that plays for the Arkansas Wings.

LSU has A LOT of ground to make up on Bridgewater. He's pretty enamored with Arizona.

Bridgewater has A LOT of ground to make up if he wants to go to Arizona. Sean Miller is recruiting as good as anyone in the country right now. Unless he completely strikes out next year, 3-star recruits probably won't even get asked to visit. Even Gathers was a backup recruit for them.

What is the likelihood that Bridgewater starts to get football looks as well?

Hopefully, we have a new GOOD Basketball coach recruiting these guys.
I don't see any way TJ makes it past this year.

I've read that Grant is fairly interested in Bridgewater. Alabama probably doesn't have a real shot though.
