He doesn't appear to be on too many national lists, and if Jones gets the Dante Exum kid he might be done recruiting guards, but Touchet has the look of a kid you want on your team.
He's the 4A state MVP
and the Gatorade Mr. Basketball
this year as a junior. He led his team to the state title this year. That included hanging 35 on St. Aug in the playoffs.
He's 6-2 and 180 pounds, has a 40-inch vertical leap,
and a 4.0 GPA. The numbers were pretty impressive for a 4A player as well - 20.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals per game, shooting 57 percent from the field, 41 percent from 3-point range and 83 percent from the free throw line.
On paper this guy looks like a kid LSU would regret not getting. But I haven't seen him play, so I'm willing to hear reasons why we don't want him or why we're not recruiting him - or if we are recruiting him and he doesn't want to come, or if he's about to commit to us. I can't find anything one way or the other.
