LSU basketball has been in touch with North Carolina guard transfer
After a disappointing first season for coach Matt McMahon in which LSU finished just 2-16 in SEC play, it’s clear some changes need to be made.
That will almost certainly include a few additions through the transfer portal, and one player LSU has reportedly reached out to is former North Carolina guard Dontrez Styles.
According to On3, Styles — a 6-foot-6 player who spent two seasons with the Tar Heels — has heard of a number of programs, including several at power conferences in addition to the Tigers.
Styles played 30 games as a true rookie in 2021-22, averaging two points and 1.4 rebounds, but he’s only played 15 games this season and has seen his production drop even further.
Still, Styles was a four-star recruit and a top 75 prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, and it’s no surprise he’s garnering a lot of interest from programs in need of help like LSU’s. .
