On Thursday, Efton Reid entered the transfer portal just weeks after LSU head coach Will Wade was fired from the program.
Reid, a former Pitt target, averaged 6.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game this season in his freshman campaign down in Baton Rouge. The former five star prospect is from Virginia, and attended IMG Academy for his senior year.
Reid’s initial recruitment was known to be very confusing, as his mother delayed his commitment multiple times and not many people knew which schools he was favoring. Just weeks before he ended up deciding, Pittsburgh Sports Now learned that he was down to Ohio State, LSU, and Pitt for his decision.
Then, once he did decide to commit to LSU, PSN learned that Reid had informed Jeff Capel and his staff that he would be verbally committing to Pitt, however, he never followed through and eventually chose the Tigers. For LSU, Reid scored in double digits seven times this season, scoring a season-high 16 in the season opener against Louisiana Monroe. He shot 52% from the field this season, and 25% from three-point range.
