The Tigers appear to be in-line to land a commitment from the top recruit.
Tremont Waters, a four-star point guard out of Connecticut, is one of the top recruits still available in the 2017 class.
The 5-foot-11, 160-pound prospect is one of two top-50 recruits still uncommitted (five-star small forward Brian Bowen is the other).
Waters, the No. 10 PG in the class, is considering Georgetown, UConn, Creighton and LSU, among others.
The Tigers appear to be the new frontrunner for him. Several predictions on 247Sports' "Crystal Ball" have rolled in for him in recent days.
Landing Waters would be a massive commitment for LSU's program.
