Craig Victor wraps up first week at LSU

Craig Victor, a New Orleans native who recently transferred in to LSU from Arizona, is getting acquainted with life in the program.

After announcing his transfer from Arizona to LSU on Jan. 9, Craig Victor has been busy.

The former Findlay Prep and St. Augustine standout immediately enrolled in classes at LSU and, according to head coach Johnny Jones, attended classes and began practicing with the Tigers on Monday of this week and has been with the team ever since.

Victor, who won't be eligible until the second semester of next school year, is allowed to practice with the team but can't play in games or travel in the interim.

Jones told reporters on Friday that Victor participates in practice, unless LSU is working on game plan-specific things. He's also been going through conditioning work and getting in post-practice work with assistant head coach David Patrick, per Jones.

"We're really excited about him," said Jones. "Just like the role Keith Hornsby played last year, he's a hard worker."

Victor is every bit of 6-foot-8, if not a half inch taller, and weighs somewhere in the range of 220-225 pounds. He's expected to give LSU a much-needed boost in the frontcourt heading into SEC play next season.
