Former UK target Tremont Waters signs with LSU

Remember Tremont Waters? The four-star point guard was once a Kentucky target and viewed as a backup option if Quade Green or Trae Young went elsewhere, but committed to Georgetown in October. Waters decommitted from the Hoyas in March and secured his release, and after reevaluating his options, signed with LSU this afternoon.

Waters’ decision to go to LSU is just the latest sign SEC Basketball is on the rise. Will Wade’s first recruiting class now ranks 16th in the country and 4th in the SEC according to 247 Sports. Ahead of the Tigers? Kentucky, obviously, at #1; Alabama at #2; and Missouri at #3. With big name prospects like Michael Porter (Missouri), Collin Sexton (Alabama), John Petty (Alabama), and now Waters, the talent is flowing into the league at an impressive clip, and for once, the caliber of the coaches matches it.

Last season, SEC Basketball made people sit up and take notice; is this the year it finally becomes a full-fledged reality?

    I know Quade Green attracted a lot of talent (who wanted to play with him) and was a great recruiter for the 2017 class (and I thank him for that contribution alone!), and is a very nice talent, but after watching tape on both, I believe Waters is the better of the two. We shall see. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Waters gives us fits when we play LSU.

    He looked to me like another Tyler Ulis type of player. Very aggressive and could shoot. Great handles.
