LSU basketball has been in contact with guard transfer from North Carolina
After a disappointing debut season for coach Matt McMahon in which LSU finished just 2-16 in SEC play, it’s clear some changes need to be made.
That will almost certainly include some additions via the transfer portal, and one player that LSU has reportedly made contact with is former North Carolina guard Dontrez Styles.
According to On3, Styles — a 6-foot-6 player who spent two seasons with the Tar Heels — has heard from a number of programs including several in power conferences in addition to the Tigers.
Styles played in 30 games as a true freshman in 2021-22, averaging two points and 1.4 rebounds, but he only played in 15 games this season and saw his production dip even further.

Still, Styles was a four-star recruit and top 75 prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, and it’s not surprising that he’s seeing a lot of interest from programs in need of help like LSU’s.
