The commitment list for LSU basketball in 2016 has doubled in the last 24 hours with the pledge from three-star point guard Skylar Mays, a Baton Rouge native taking his talents to Findlay Prep (Nev.) for his senior season.
Mays joins longtime running mate and former high school teammate Wayde Sims, an athletic forward, as the only two rising seniors currently committed to the program.
The Tigers could realistically take anywhere from four to six players in their 2016 signing class, already a spot shy of the 13 scholarships allowed by NCAA rules and set to lose a host of players after this season, from seniors Josh Gray and Keith Hornsby to some combination of underclassmen Ben Simmons, Tim Quarterman and Antonio Blakeney.
With two pledges in, who could fill the remaining two to four spots?
Keep an eye out for two four-star point guards: DeJon Jarreau of New Orleans and Jaylen Fisher of Memphis. Jarreau, on Tuesday, trimmed his final list to seven, and LSU was in the number, while Fisher is down to six, a mix that also includes the Tigers.
Where things could get interesting is that wherever Jarreau goes, prep and AAU teammate Brison Gresham is set to follow, as the two recently told TSD they're a package deal.
Gresham is a mobile big man capable of playing the power forward on the next level. He, like Jarreau and Fisher, have offers to LSU.
The Tigers also have other targets in Louisiana, throughout the southeast and even in Australia, but these are the first three names I'd monitor as for who could come next for LSU in 2016.
