LSU officially announced the hiring of Murray State transfer guard Trae Hannibal on Friday. Per

Hannibal averaged 9.2 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists while playing an average of 21.9 minutes per game for the Racers in 2021-22, appearing in all 34 games with one start. He made 108-of-208 field goal attempts (51.9%) with 40 steals.

He was part of a 31-win season at Murray State as the Racers reached the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament after a 20-0 championship year in the Ohio Valley Conference.

“We are extremely excited to welcome Trae Hannibal to the LSU family,” said Coach McMahon. “He had an outstanding sophomore season at Murray State. When he decided that he wanted to make a change, he was flooded with offers. We wanted to make sure we had the opportunity to coach him here at LSU.

“He is an explosive guard who will impact our program at both ends of the court. We love his ability to attack off the dribble, his unselfishness, and his aggressiveness on defense. We look forward to his arrival in Baton Rouge this summer.” Read more.

This clown is built like a football player - he was one of the most athletic players I saw in the NCAAT this year.

I mean Murray definitely had some serviceable players. But we can’t just lose an entire SEC roster of 4 and 5 star players and replace it with Murray State transfers and their 3 start recruits and hope to win any games

He transferred from USCe to Murry State on April 1, 2021. He must be a fan of April fools day.
