Tigers look for athleticism in hoops

Today is three weeks before the start of college basketball's regular (most call it "late") signing period April 11 and while there has been precious little news from the LSU front, there is plenty to watch for as the period nears.

LSU coach Trent Johnson said in a season-ending news conference last week that his staff "has some work to do in terms of trying to get two more guys into this basketball program, maybe three."

That would mean an overall class of three or four players, considering that in the early signing period LSU signed Malik Morgan - a shooting guard from John Curtis Christian in River Ridge, La., who led his team past reigning Louisiana Mr. Basketball Ricardo Gathers (who is committed to Baylor) and Riverside Academy for the Class 2A state title. LSU can sign as many as five players total, but speculation is that one scholarship may be held to entertain a deep 2013 class in Louisiana (the Tigers have only two scholarship seniors coming back next season).
