Tremont Waters is headed to LSU
In something of a surprise, Top-40 recruit Tremont Waters, who was previously believed to be a strong Georgetown lean (he signed with Georgetown originally, but asked for his release to reopen his recruiting in March), has committed to the LSU Tigers says his father.
“Multiple reasons,” the elder Waters said when asked why his son chose LSU. “Lengthy conversations with the coach and looking into the SEC we have network where our wife and I can catch every game if we want to on our network.”
“Having a good contract was important and understanding a coach like Will Wade coming in has to prove himself, just like Tremont does,” he added. “I like the fact that he’s hungry and has something to prove. The conversations have been amazing.”
The 5-11, 165-pound point guard from Notre Dame High School in New Haven, Connecticut ranks as the #32 player in the 2017 class.
He chose LSU over offers from UConn, Duke, Georgetown, Indiana, Kansas, and Kentucky.
Why did he pick LSU? According to his father, it seems like getting onto the court right away and developing by playing, was a key factor.
“Tremont’s development is important,” Waters said. “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 is a gifted scorer who will add another dimension to LSU’s offensive attack under new head coach Will Wade.
The top uncommitted player left on the board, Waters joins an LSU recruiting class that also includes four-star forwards Galen Alexander and Brandon Rachal.
