Was Naz Reid Offered 300K To Join LSU?

The LSU basketball coach, Will Wade, was accused of trying to pay $300,000 to recruit Naz Reid by Emanuel Richardson, who was involved in a federal investigation.

This accusation was made in a secretly recorded FBI video shown in court.

The conversation was recorded between the former coach and a convicted financial manager, who were discussing recruiting battles in the Southeastern Conference.

Richardson claimed that Wade approached him about offering money to recruit Reid for LSU while Arizona and LSU were competing for him.

However, Naz Reid denied the accusation and said he was not paid to play for LSU.

In the interview at NBA Combine on May 16, 2019, he denied any such deal, stating that it did not occur.

She then attended Mississippi State University as a graduate student, taking advantage of the NCAA’s additional COVID year for student-athletes during the 2020-21 season.
