Southern Utah graduate transfer Randy Onwuasor, who visited Gonzaga last week, has committed to LSU.

Onwuasor, a 6-foot-3 wing who played his first two seasons at Texas Tech, ranked fifth in Division I and led the Big Sky Conference at 23.6 points per game as a junior at Southern Utah.

“After long thought and talk with my family I have decided to attend LSU this fall,” Onwuasor tweeted.

Onwuasor visited Gonzaga last Tuesday and was scheduled to visit South Carolina last Friday. He was originally scheduled to visit LSU on Tuesday but he changed his plans and moved up the trip to last Wednesday and Thursday.

Onwuasor would have added depth and scoring punch to a GU guard line that consists of veterans Josh Perkins and Silas Melson, 2017 redshirt Zach Norvell Jr. and incoming freshmen Jesse Wade and Joel Ayayi.
