Long Beach State has landed a commitment from Evan Payne, according to multiple reports.
Payne spent this past season at Loyola Marymount, where he averaged 18.0 points as a sophomore. The 6-foot-1 guard decided to transfer after LMU’s season came to a close, and he was one of the more sought-after guards on the transfer market.
LBSU has been a haven for transfers in recent seasons, and their uptempo style should suit Payne well.
He’ll have two years of eligibility remaining beginning n 2016-17.
