Missouri transfer combo guard Xavier Pinson offically signed with LSU on Friday. Per

Pinson, a native of Chicago, played the past three seasons at Missouri. Last year he averaged 13.6 points and 2.9 assists per game.

"We are excited to have Xavier Pinson join the LSU Basketball team," said Coach Wade. "He has performed at a high level in the Southeastern Conference for three years and will certainly provide a veteran presence on both ends of the floor for our basketball team."

The 6-2 Pinson averaged 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game for Missouri in the 2018-19 season as a freshman. As a sophomore (2019-20), he averaged 11.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

Coaches taking lifetime contracts and senior led national champions are the trend. 1yr and gone does not work. This guy is an exception - experienced senior transfer. In my mind, exactly what we need.

Not a comment on this kid, but we’ll never get anywhere, as a basketball program, if we start every new year with brand new players. We need some stability, and at this point, I really don’t care if that means signing more 2 and 3 star recruits.

Every program now relies on transfers. Wade doing what he has to do to win.
