LSU is hosting Kansas State transfer guard Cam Carter on a visit today (Thursday), a source close to the team confirmed to the Bengal Tiger On3. Carter also posted a photo at LSU on his Instagram story.

Carter is originally from Donaldsville, Louisiana, before going to Oak Hill Academy o the east coast, then attending Mississippi State for his freshman season, then Kansas State for his sophomore and junior seasons. He has one year of eligibility remaining and LSU is one of the top teams recruiting him out of the portal.

Carter averaged 14.6 points and five rebounds per game this season on a Kansas State team that made the NIT. At 6-foot-3, Carter has always been a scorer and someone LSU could use to replace the offensive production on the wing in 2024.

As the transfer portal continues to pick up, Carter is the first player LSU has hosted as it looks to rebuild its roster in 2024. Last season, Matt McMahon added several upperclassmen to help reload and compete right away. The result was a 9-9 SEC record and a spot in the NIT. Now for year three, McMahon will hope to build off that success and get his team to the NCAA Tournament.

Building to compete in the SEC

McMahon has made it a priority to bring Louisiana natives back home. Last year, Jordan Wright, Hunter Dean, Jalen Cook, and Carlos Stewart were all returning to play for their home team. Carter being a Louisiana native certainly adds more incentive for the Tigers to land him out of the portal.

LSU has already lost Mwani Wilkinson to the portal and we’ll keep tabs on the latest moves from McMahon’s team over the offseason as it looks to compete in the SEC.

“I think you look at last year, I believe Arkansas went to the Sweet 16. They were the 10 seed in this tournament last year. So I think that speaks to the depth of the league,” McMahon said. “It’s the number one offensive rebounding league in the country. It’s the number one league in the country when it comes to blocking shots. I think that speaks to the athleticism and physicality around the basket. I think the league this year, just so much better offensively. Teams shoot it much better from behind the three-point line. You have offenses that are putting up a hundred on a regular basis. It’s just an elite league top to bottom.”
