Will Wade Breaks Down LSU's Elite 2020 Recruiting Class

A top-five class (that may not be finished) has Will Wade thinking his next team could be his best team. Coach Wade joins the show today to break down LSU's 2020 hoops class, currently ranked No. 5 nationally. The group features the son of an LSU legend (Shareef O'Neal), the best scoring guard in the country (Cameron Thomas), a point guard with Tremont Waters' passing ability and explosive length (Eric Gaines), Louisiana's Mr. Basketball (Jalen Cook), a 17-year-old high-flyer from Vegas (Mwani Wilkinson), a rebounding machine from California (Bradley Ezewiro), and a versatile, defensively-gifted transfer who practiced all spring with the Tigers (Josh LeBlanc).

Will Wade Breaks Down LSU's Elite 2020 Recruiting Class

Tigers United: Cole Henry and Eric Walker, LSU Baseball

LSU Baseball's pitching staff was off to a historic start in 2020. Then, the outbreak of a pandemic changed everything. Today's episode of Tigers United features Cole Henry and Eric Walker (6:58), two of the Tigers' top arms, who check in from their homes on how they're adapting to life in the social distancing age. They talk missing the day to day grind of a baseball team, living meal to meal, finding ways to work out and throw, the uncertainty of their futures, what they're watching, and how difficult it is to cut off a championship chase before it even really gets started.

Tigers United: Skylar Mays and Ruby Harrold

A new podcast series from LSU Athletics: Tigers United. So many times in life, we're defined by the things that divide us. But sometimes we all go through something together. And we're reminded of the things that unite us. Right now, in some form or another, we're all going through the same thing. And we're all united by a sense of loss and how to cope with it. On one end of the scale, there are those who are fighting for their lives, fighting for their health, fighting for the lives of other people. And wherever you are in that fight, know you're not alone. But up and down the scale, from most serious to least serious, we're all dealing with some sort of loss. Maybe it's a job. Maybe it's school. Maybe it's time spent with loved ones or the ability to go work out in a gym or eat out at a restaurant for dinner. For Ruby Harrold and Skylar Mays, one of the losses they're dealing with right now is a loss that so many other student athletes across the country are figuring out how to co...
