LSU lands graduate transfer Jeremy Combs


Will Wade will add a double-digit scorer to his team in his first year at the helm of LSU.

Jeremy Combs, who averaged double figures in three years at North Texas, has committed to the Tigers as a graduate transfer, meaning he is eligible for the 2017-18 season.

“We are excited that Jeremy Combs will be joining us following his graduation from North Texas,” Wade said in a statement. “His ability to score inside and to 15 feet along with his aggressiveness on the boards will be an asset for us next season.”

He missed the final 16 games of this past season. As a sophomore for the Mean Green, the 6-foot-7 Combs averaged 14.9 points and 10.5 rebounds per game.

LSU has lost Antonio Blakeney, who averaged 17.2 points per game, to the NBA Draft.

Combs joins guards Daryl Edwards and Brandon Rachal, and forwards Mayan Kiir and Galen Alexander in the incoming class for LSU.
