March 29, 2024

Matt McMahon and his LSU basketball program picked up a significant player from the transfer portal on Friday as Donaldsonville native Cam Carter signed with the Tigers.

Carter who stands at 6-foot-3 started his collegiate career at Mississippi State but played the last two years at Kansas State.

Carter averaged 14.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.4 steals a season ago for the Wildcats with 59 treys. He shot 84 percent at the free throw line (100-of-119) and averaged 35.5 minutes per game. He faced LSU in the Maravich Center when Kansas State came to Baton Rouge in December 2023 and scored 21 points with eight rebounds and four assists.

“We are excited to welcome Cam Carter back to Louisiana to represent his home state,” said Coach McMahon. “We love his toughness and competitiveness on the defensive side of the ball along with his proven production in the Big 12. Bottom line, Cam impacts winning and we’re looking forward to coaching him at LSU.”

Carter started his high school career at East Ascension but finished at at Oak Hill Academy at Mouth of Wilson, Virginia.
