BREAKING: Richmond transfer guard Dji Bailey signs with LSU

May 1, 2024

Matt McMahon and his LSU basketball program received some great news Wednesday afternoon as Richmond transfer guard Dji Bailey will join the Tigers program.

The 6-foot-5 guard has one year of eligibility remaining.  Last season he averaged 10.2 points per game, 4.4 rebounds per game, 1.7 steals and 2.2 assists per game.

“We are excited to welcome Dji Bailey to LSU and look forward to his arrival on campus later this month,” said Coach McMahon.  “Dji had a terrific season in helping Richmond to the A-10 regular season championship.  He was very efficient offensively, leading the A-10 in FG% and also carrying a 2-to-1 assist/turnover ratio.  He is a disruptive defender who finished 4th in the A-10 in steals and helped anchor a top 35 defense in the country.  Dji’s experience and leadership will be welcomed in our locker room this season.”

Bailey’s 56.4 shooting percentage is fourth best in Richmond basketball history.

He’s originally from Wilson, North Carolina where he prepped at The Greenfield School.

Bailey joins transfer portal additions Cam Carter from Kansas State and Jordan Sears from UT Martin; and, high school signees from the early signing period – Robert Miller of Pasadena (Texas) Memorial High School and Curtis Givens III of Montverde (Florida) Academy.
