The LSU basketball program will add a 4-star power forward on Wednesday, according to a report from The Advocate.
New basketball coach Will Wade got a commitment on Tuesday from Mayan Kiir for the second time, as the 6-foot-10, 225-pound power forward was previously signed with Wade at VCU.
The spring signing period opens Wednesday, and Kiir’s high school coach in Bradenton, Fla., confirmed the commitment to the newspaper.
Kiir was considering LSU in the fall and visited for the Alabama football game, but signed with Wade and VCU shortly after, according to The Advocate.
Wade was hired to LSU on March 20. Players who sign in the fall can ask to open recruitment if a coach is fired or leaves school over the winter.
Kiir is a South Sudan native and also lived in Melbourne, Australia. He is the No. 95 rated player in the Class of 2017 by ESPN.com.
LSU has one scholarship available for next season, and Kiir is expected to join signees from Johnny Jones in November: Small forward Galen Alexander of Lafayette Christian and combo guard Brandon Rachal of Natchitoches Central.
