Former Illinois forward Coleman Hawkins, the No. 1 available player in the NCAA transfer portal, is expected to visit LSU next week on June 17.

The 6-10 senior from Sacramento, Calif., participated in the NBA Combine but withdrew his name from the NBA Draft and is heading back to college for his final year of eligibility. Per SI.com:

The 6-foot-10 senior attended the NBA Combine, and while he impressed professional personnel, he elected to withdraw and head back to college for his final season of eligibility.

Hawkins is currently checking out the Kansas State Wildcats on an official visit, but will not shutdown his process immediately. Instead, he will remain a free agent and visit LSU in the coming days.

The top transfer averaged 12.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game during the 2023-24 season. He shot 45.1% from the field and nearly 37% from three-point range while knocking down 79.2% from the free throw line.
