Regis Koundjia, a quick and active 6-6, 190 pound small/combination forward from the Laurinburg Institute in Laurinburg, N.C., has reaffirmed his commitment to Louisiana State.
Back in the spring, Laurinburg Head Coach Chris Chaney had informed the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com about Koundjia's commitment. At several events this spring and summer, however, Koundjia had stated that he was willing to play the field a bit.
On Wednesday morning at the adidas Big Time Tournament, Koundjia (who is playing here with the D.C. Assault program), confirmed that he is locked up for the SEC program.
"I committed to LSU and I am going to go there, because I think I am going to play right away there," Koundjia said.
Koundjia added that he had interest from schools such as North Carolina and Wake Forest this summer before reaffirming his commitment to LSU.
"I am going to LSU because I want to play right away," he repeated. "They saw me here (in Las Vegas) last year with the Glass City Prospects."
A native of the Central African Republic, Koundjia has helped D.C. Assault reach Thursday's playoff round action with his inspired play. While his shot mechanics need a little fine tuning, he is so fast and active on the offensive side of the ball and explodes to the glass on missed shot attempts.
