2018 big man Naz Reid is expected to commit to LSU, multiple sources told FanRag Sports.

An official announcement could come as early as this weekend.

Reid is a five-star prospect and a Top-20 player in the Class of 2018.

The 6-10 big man will join five-star point guard Javonte Smart in the Tigers’ 2018 recruiting class.

Reid had cut list to Arizona and LSU a few weeks ago.

A New Jersey native, Reid will join a strong young nucleus under newly minted head coach Will Wade that will feature both Smart and four-star guard Tremont Waters.

The Tigers also remain in the mix for several Top-100 players in the Class of 2018 such as Darius Days and Josh LeBlanc.

Wade is entering his first season as LSU after leading VCU to the past two NCAA Tournaments.
