Top transfer Hailey Van Lith is making an official visit to national champion LSU as she weighs her options for the upcoming season.

One of the top players in the transfer portal, Van Lith leaves Louisville after a junior season in which she averaged 19.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists. She helped lead the team to at least the Elite Eight in each of her three seasons, and all the way to the Final Four in 2022.

The 5-7 guard visited LSU’s Baton Rouge campus on Tuesday.

With the departure of Alexis Morris to the WNBA, the Tigers have an opening at the point guard spot, one Van Lith could fill.

Van Lith also has a connection to LSU coach Kim Mulkey, who recruited the guard toward the end of her tenure at Baylor. Van Lith’s final two choices out of high school came down to Baylor and Louisville, and while she chose the latter three years ago, Mulkey could still have some pull.
