The 6-foot-8 forward Corey Chest from Elanor McMaine High in New Orleans decided to stay home as he committed to Louisiana State University. The Tigers were one of five other programs that made the finals for Chest. The other programs being: Houston, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, and Overtime Elite.
“They are big on family,” Chest said. “They are a new staff and they fit my style of play.”
In the Top 150 Prospects in the Class of 2023, Chest ranked number 62. The forward is now one of many Top 150 recruits that McMahon has committed since his arrival to LSU in the wake of former Head Coach Will Wade.
“However, Chest’s commitment is most important because it says that McMahon and his staff are here to stay, ready to compete with anybody for talent and that they are going to plant their flag in Louisiana and protect the home state.” said 247sports.com’s Eric Bossi.
