LSU men’s basketball coach Will Wade has quickly stockpiled top quality talent in his quest to elevate his program to an elite level nationally.

With Brandon Rachal’s transfer recently, Wade acted quickly in filling the spot with another 4 star talent who could be eligible to play this season.

Aundre Hyatt, a product of White Plains, New York, committed to the Tigers. He spent the past two seasons at a prep school on Charlottesville, Virginia. Wade and Hyatt forged a close relationship while Wade was coaching at nearby VCU.

The 6-foot-7, 215 pounder narrowed his final choices to LSU, Rutgers, Seton Hall and Pittsburgh. He had additional offers from Louisville, USC, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and Oregon.

Hyatt was scheduled to be a part of next year’s signing class, but could play this season after reclassifying. He will enroll August 20 at LSU and decide if he wants to jump into the competition or redshirt. He is dealing with an injury.

In prep school, he averaged 18 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game in prep school. At Nike summer circuit, Hyatt averaged 11.6 points, 4.2 rebounds in 23 games.

Hyatt has outstanding shooting skills from distance along with both good length and size. He was rated as the 40th best prep small forward in the country.
