ESPN No. 32 ranked high school senior Tremont Waters has committed to LSU.
The 5-11 point guard averaged 23.2 points, 6 assists, and 4 steals this year for Notre Dame HS (West Haven, CT), leading the team to a 20-0 regular season record.
For his outstanding play, Waters was named the New Haven Register and Gatorade State Player of the Year.
“Tremont Waters is a dynamic point guard who will help our program immediately,” LSU head coach Will Wade said via a statement.” “His ability to pass and score, along with his defensive tenacity, will help us tremendously as we move ahead toward the 2017-18 campaign.”
Coach Wade said that LSU is a great place for Waters to learn and grow as a player.
“Tremont’s development is important,” Waters told Scout. “Some of these kids can go anywhere and can go one and done. But some of these kids are like Steph Curry and Davidson, where they need to go somewhere and develop.”
Waters had originally committed to Georgetown, but pulled out after the school fired head coach John Thompson III.
The Tigers beat out the likes of Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana, and Yale to land the coveted point guard.
At LSU, Waters will join fellow 2016 recruits No. 77 Galen Alexander and No. 29 SF Brandon Rachal.
