The LSU Tigers continued their success in the 2018 recruiting cycle on Friday. Gainesville, Florida native Darius Days, ranked 65th in the class of 2018, committed to the Tigers over the North Carolina Tar Heels. He made the announcement on his personal Twitter account.
I wanna thank God and my family as well as my coaches and I wanna say thank you to all the coaches that recruited me. L’s pic.twitter.com/6VyywBelZD— Almighty-Double_00 (@Almighty_Doubl3) October 20, 2017
Days is a power forward out of The Rock School in Gainesville. He also plays for the Florida Vipers on the Under Armour Association circuit. In the Sunshine State, he ranks eighth overall in a pretty solid class, featuring top-ranked player R.J. Barrett, UNC commit Nassir Little, Anfernee Simons and Florida commit Andrew Nembhard among others. He also currently ranks 17th at his position in the class of 2018.
At 6-foot-6 and 218 lbs., Days will be bringing versatility to the table. He reportedly improved his 3-point shooting as a junior in high school, which will be a welcomed habit by the time he gets to college.
Darius Days is the third commit for head coach Will Wade for 2018. And it’s a loaded class to say the least. He joins Baton Rouge native and combo guard Ja’Vonte Smart, a fellow four-star player ranked 29th in the country. There’s also five-star Naz Reid, a power forward out of Roselle Catholic in New Jersey. Having the combo of Reid and Days is as good as it gets for 2018, so expect this class to make a big impact when they eventually step through the Maravich Assembly Center.
And, oh yeah, that class right now ranks first in the SEC and third in the country. Pretty, pretty, pretty good.
