LSU head men’s basketball coach Will Wade continues to scour the countryside to find the right players for his budding program.

Noah Thomas has joined the roster as a preferred walk-on. Already on the LSU campus, the 6-foot-4, 185 pounder rejected offers from Stephen F. Austin and Miami (Ohio). The Cypress, Texas native excelled at Cy-Fair High School, averaging 18 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 steals, connecting on 36 percent from behind the arc.

Thomas is a very aggressive and confident player who is also a good passer who plays under control. He can hang in the air to adjust his shot. He had 32 points against The Woodlands and scored 37 points against highly regarded Cy Falls in the Kingswood Insperity Classic, connecting on six out of 11 shots from three-point long range.

JUCO wing Marlon Taylor (6-6, 210) inked with LSU a little over a week ago. Also joining the Tigers for the upcoming campaign is a dynamic signinng class including Nazreon Reid (6-9, 220), Emmitt Williams (6-7, 215), JaVonte Smart (6-4, 195) and Darius Days (6-7, 218).
