LSU Tigers

The Tigers were reportedly a finalist for Zyon Pullin, who was the top point guard in the portal this past week. But he’s off to Florida, bolstering another backcourt for next season in the SEC. That leaves Tulane transfer Jalen Cook and returning guard, Trae Hannibal. It’s a solid, yet not fully proven at this conference from a high-level production standpoint, even though Cook originally started with the Tigers.

It’s clear that LSU is going for one more guard to round out the roster. With guys like Carlos Stewart and Jordan Wright on the wings, they can make more room for a key contributor like Mulcahy to have a large role. And Cook is more than capable of playing off the ball, making way for the former Scarlet Knight ball-handler to come in and have a big impact.

Miami Hurricanes

The Hurricanes were recently in the mix for Mulcahy’s former teammate, Cam Spencer. But with him now at UConn, the team still has just one transfer import on the roster in FSU wing, Matthew Cleveland. This leaves the team with mainly Nijel Pack as the starting point guard but he’s not a proven lead guard on an offense, at least one that wins much.

Without ACC Player of the Year guard Isaiah Wong in the backcourt, Miami will have just Pack and Bensley Joseph as ball-handlers on the roster. Mulcahy would solve multiple roster issues and allow the sharpshooting Pack to remain more off the ball. And with star big man Norchad Omier down low, this roster with Mulcahy would look like Rutgers, just only better.
