Former LSU guard Xavier Pinson has already heard from some of the biggest programs in college hoops

Xavier Pinson is one of the biggest names to enter the transfer portal so far, and less than 24 hours after announcing his departure from LSU, he's heard from some of the biggest programs in college hoops.


According to Rivals' David Sisk, Kentucky, Michigan State, Xavier, and Arizona State are among the programs to reach out to Pinson.


The 6'3 guard spent his first three years at Missouri before electing to head to LSU this season, where he averaged just under 10 points, five assists and two steals. His play helped the Tigers reach the Top 10 in the early polls, and his injury coincided with a mid-season struggle for LSU.


After leaving Missouri last year, he was recruited by Arkansas, Auburn, Kentucky and others, before settling on LSU.
