The LSU Basketball team seemingly had it's roster set after landing three transfers and three recruits reaching the self-imposed scholarship limit. While the team had added massive amounts of talent and could take a huge leap next season, the team had a massive void at the Center position. Many hoped that the team could land a quality player as a walk-on to fill the position left by Will Baker to build out this roster.

Matt McMahon has done it it by landing JUCO transfer Noah Boyed from McCook. The center averaged 12.6 points per game, 6.2 rebounds per game, and 0.8 blocks per game. Boyed had signed with Baylor this fall but, now McMahon and his staff landed the 7-footer with tons of upside.

The commitment means that either a roster management move is coming or that Boyed will be a walk-on with an NIL deal that pays for his schooling until LSU comes off of probation.

The team likely won't make any more additions this off-season after filling out what's become a very talented group. If Boyed can play at a high level in 2024, the LSU Tigers ceiling gets much higher with the possibility of competing for a very talented SEC Title.

This will be Matt McMahon's best group yet

In Matt McMahon's third season as head coach of the LSU Tigers, this will be his most talented group yet and it's not close. Transfer guards Cam Carter and Jordan Sears will give this team high upside scoring while returnees Jalen Reed and Tyrell Ward give the team veteran wing play. If first time division one players Noah Boyed, Vyctorius Miller, Curtis Givens, and Robert Miller can play at a high level this team has a chance to be one of the better team's in the conference.
