Hoops recruiting now over, we can talk potential lineups
You never know for sure with Will Wade. He could sign another player tomorrow. But, it appears the roster for this season is set.

LSU 2017-2018 Roster

Oregon transfer Kavell Bigby-Williams (6-11, 230, C) is not yet listed, but he wouldn't be eligible this year anyway.

quote:

Brandon Sampson G 6-5 184 Jr
Duop Reath F 6-11 244 Sr
Brandon Rachal G 6-5 215 Fr
Tremont Waters G 5-11 167 Fr
Skylar Mays G 6-4 200 So
Daryl Edwards G 6-3 165 Jr
Galen Alexander F 6-6 210 Fr
Marshall Graves G 6-2 185 So
Jeremy Combs F 6-7 215 Gr
Randy Onwuasor G 6-3 210 Gr
Reed Vial G 6-3 189 Jr
Aaron Epps F 6-10 214 Sr
Mayan Kiir F 6-9 201 Fr
Wayde Sims F 6-6 217 So


It's hard for me to believe a graduate transfer would come here to sit the bench, so I have to assume both will start.

Mays
Onwuasor
Sampson
Combs
Reath

Waters and Edwards get a ton of playing time at guard. Kiir is the top reserve down low.

I think that is probably your starting 5 to begin the season. Waters will play at lot. Edwards will as well because he may be LSU's only consistent outside shooter.

Epps and Kiir should play a ton (regardless of if they start) because LSU is incredibly thin in the frontcourt.

I think this year's team is going to look like some Cincinnati teams in the past were we may see 4 guard line ups on the court fairly often. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you are going to see a team that attacks the rim all game long. I'd be surprised if LSU isn't one of the league leaders in FT attempts.

Yes, I could see Waters come in for a forward and go with a 4 guard line up.

Shouldn't we have at least one guy with a "C" for position

That's more of a trend. No player wants to be listed as a center. They can play center the whole game, but on paper they are a forward.

Going to be really hard for me to believe Waters doesn't start. Will Wade has been praising this kids talent. I'm thinking more of
1.Waters
2.Onwuassor
3.Sampson
4. Combs
5.Reath

I also like
1. Waters
2. Mays
3. Onwuassor
4. Combs
5. Reath
Sampson being our 6th man off Bench

I think Onwuasor, Combs and Reath are locked in.

Waters, Mays, Sampson and Edwards are fighting for the other two spots.

So what happened to the 5* center that we had a shot at the other day that's was leaving his committment?

It appears he won't be eligible and will likely never play college basketball.

LSU passed.

Future NBA never will be. Mark that down

He'll be in the league....but be a bench player however long his career is.

And I post has nothing to do with him not coming to LSU

This team is very similar to the 1987 team which would have made a second straight Final Four had the officials not allowed Bobby Knight to get away with his histrionics and then allowed him to intimidate them.

Isn't it amazing....I haven't seen several of these kids play yet, but it just feels like we have a legit Divison 1 roster for the first time in a while.

Can't help but get excited about what this program will look like in 3-4 years.
