Now that LSU has confirmed Will Wade as the Tigers’ new basketball coach, a former LSU hoops coach says LSU fans throughout the state must get behind the new hire.
34 year old Will Wade will be formally announced at a news conference tentatively set for Wednesday. John Brady, who led LSU to the Final Four in 2006, says Wade filled all the criteria set by director of athletics Joe Alleva.
Brady said Wade's first recruiting target should be point guard Javonte Smart of Scotlandville high school, the top player in the state in the class of 2018. Smart is rated as one of the top 5 point guards in the nation in his class.
Wade led Virginia Commonwealth to the NCAA tournament the past two seasons.
