Former Missouri guard Xavier Pinson is transferring to SEC foe LSU, he announced Monday on social media.

Pinson helped Missouri reach the NCAA Tournament this season for only the second time since the 2012-13 campaign. He ranked second on the team in scoring, assists, and steals in 2020-21, and his 13.6 points per contest ranked 18th in the SEC.

Pinson started 49 games over three years at Missouri and will provide LSU head coach Will Wade with an experienced ball-handler alongside sophomores Eric Gaines and Jalen Cook.

LSU reached the round of 32 in this season's NCAA Tournament but is likely losing leading scorer Cameron Thomas to the NBA.
