Regis Koundjia, a 6-7, 210-pound junior small forward from Laurinburg Institute in North Carolina, committed to LSU on Friday. Koundjia, who is orginally from Central Africa Republic, chose LSU. He had earlier interest from Maryland and Wake Forest.
Regis will play for the DC Assault this spring and summer. He was also invited to the ABCD camp held in early July at FDU. Koundjia took an unofficial visit to LSU. "He always liked Butch but he got along with coach (John) Brady," said his head coach Chris Chaney. "The thing about LSU is not only because they are in the SEC but if you look at their roster their top players next year are going to seniors. So Regis has a good chance to step in right away and start."
Chaney also said: "He did not take any other unofficial visits. He is very long and very athletic. What I like about his game is he really doesn't have a weakness. We are really trying to improve all parts of his game but he is a very smart player. He can do it inside. He can do it outside. His shot has gotten a lot better. We are really forward to next year plus he's a great kid."
Chaney said he should have the core and is now working on the test. Regis has plenty of time to make that mark since he is just a junior.
