The LSU Basketball team's roster is officially set as they've gotten to 12 scholarship players with the portal closed to new entrants. Matt McMahon is at a disadvantage as the school self-imposed a scholarship limit due to the Will Wade scandal. The Tigers roster is now set as Wade filled out the roster, here's a look at Matt McMahon has to work with:

The Incoming Freshmen:

Matt McMahon added a talented freshman class bringing in the Nation's 16th Overall class and the Fourth-ranked class in the SEC. The three talented signees will certainly see playing time right away and could be the key to a successful season for LSU.

Guard - Vyctorius Miller

Miller was Matt McMahon's top recruit in this class as a four-star shooting guard ranked as the 60th overall recruit in the country. In terms of scoring, Miller is one of the best in the class with an ability to score at all three levels. He'll need to work at his game on the defensive end but, he'll be an instant impact player in year one.

Forward - Robert Miller

The addition of Robert Miller was a massive get as the four-star recruit was the 61st-ranked prospect in the country. At 6 foot 10, Miller has a rare ability ball handling, shooting, and passing for a player of his size. The LSU Tigers have a loaded forward room for Miller to breakthrough but, he should certainly get a chance to play in year one.

Point Guard - Curtis Givens

Givens has plenty of experience playing high-level basketball during his time at powerhouse Montverde Academy. The talented point guard was ranked as the eighth-ranked point guard in the class and the 80th overall recruit in the class. The Tigers will give Givens time to develop as he'll likely serve as the backup to transfer Jordan Sears until he's ready to take the reins.

The Transfers:

The LSU Basketball team made a serious splash in the transfer portal bringing in three transfer guards who will make big impacts from day one.

Point Guard - Jordan Sears

While Jordan Sears is undersized at 5"11 he's one of the Nation's best scorers and can carry the LSU offense in 2024. The undersized Sears will remind SEC fans a lot of Alabama guard Mark Sears as an undersized guard that can score anywhere on the court. The biggest concern will be with Sears making the jump to the SEC from the OVC but, Sears should make it look easy.

Guard - Cam Carter

The LSU Basketball team made an addition with serious NCAA Tournament experience adding Kansas State transfer Cam Carter. The Louisiana Native scored 14.6 points per game this past season at Kansas State and will look to lead this LSU offense alongside Sears. The Big Twelve is a very similar league to the SEC eliminating concerns of transition for Carter.

Guard - Dji Bailey

The final addition to Matt McMahon's squad, Dji Bailey brings the LSU basketball team versatility. Bailey won the A10 Most Improved Player averaging 10.2 points per game with 1.7 steals per game while at Richmond. While Bailey is behind most of the additions in terms of offense his ability on defense will get him onto the court immediately.

How far can this team go?

This 2024-2025 LSU Basketball team will be by far the most talented group Matt McMahon has had at LSU. This LSU Basketball team will have a chance to compete for an SEC Championship against some of the superteams being formed inside the SEC. Matt McMahon has built a deep squad despite the scholarship limit and could get LSU back to it's Will Wade Era Heights.
