The BYU Cougars basketball program picked up a commitment from another transfer.
On Monday, LSU’s Seneca Knight announced on social media that he will head west to play for the Cougars, joining Milwaukee transfer guard Te’jon Lucas as additions this offseason.
The 6-foot-7, 215-pound Knight played two full seasons at San Jose State and averaged 17.1 points in the 2019-20 campaign. Last season, the Louisiana native played four games for SJSU before entering the transfer portal and leaving for LSU.
Knight didn’t play at all for LSU, however, and entered the transfer portal again.
According to a story by 247 Sports’ Dushawn London, Knight was considering Georgia Southern and Idaho, in addition to BYU.
Of the Cougars, Knight said, “I have a great relationship with them as well. They have a really impressive coaching staff. The head coach played in the league for nine years so he has the connections and knows what he’s talking about. They were ranked in the AP top 25 the past two years so they are a no-brainer to hear them out and they’ve been there for the start.”
