College types aren't the only ones buzzing about the LSU basketball signing class, according to former Tiger great Johnny O'Bryant III.
The big man from Cleveland, Miss., an All-SEC performer in 2013 and 2014, discussed the chatter he hears now on a regular basis about the Killer B's (Antonio Blakeney, Brandon Sampson and Ben Simmons) as a member of the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks.
"Oh yeah, guys talk about it all the time," remarked O'Bryant. "This is probably the biggest class we've had since I don't know when. Guys are definitely excited about it. I'm excited about it. Coach Jones and his staff have done a great job of putting in the right pieces. I know the whole city of Baton Rouge and the world will be watching."
O'Bryant, speaking with TSD's Ben Love on "Bumper to Bumper Sports" on 103.7 FM (KLWB) in Lafayette last week, went on to say he's met the most famous member of the incoming freshmen group.
"I've met Ben a few times from him taking visits down to LSU when I was at school," he recalled. "He seems like a great kid. I know his talent is off-the-charts. The other guys I haven't really met. It seems like a great class. I wish them well."
Check out the full interview below, in which O'Bryant also opened up on how he and Jordan Mickey are similar, what he takes away from his LSU experience and the biggest part of his learning curve while breaking into the Association.
