Is Angel Reese hinting at a return to LSU next season with cryptic social media post?

The LSU women’s basketball team will return home next Sunday for its final game of the regular season, and star forward Angel Reese is one of the players who will be honored as part of the Senior Day festivities, LSU announced on Saturday.

But Reese, a fourth-year junior with one remaining season of college eligibility, does not have to leave for the WNBA draft despite meeting its requirements. And while it’s been assumed this would be her last season in Baton Rouge, perhaps that was a bit premature.

Reese hinted in a cryptic post on X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday morning that she could be considering a return to LSU for one more season.

Reese is currently projected as a top-10 WNBA draft pick by ESPN, but there would certainly be some risk involved in that decision. Alexis Morris, a second-round pick last season, was waived during preseason training camp and hasn’t found her way back on a roster since.

Whenever Reese ultimately decides to go pro, she will be one of the draft’s top prospects. But with Caitlin Clark almost guaranteed to go first overall this year, she could vie for a higher pick if she returned.
