BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Kim Mulkey and the LSU Tigers have added another transfer with the recent signing of Ohio State guard Kateri Poole.

Poole becomes the third player added through the NCAA Transfer Portal, joining West Virginia guard Jasmine Carson and Missouri forward LaDazhia Williams.

The three transfers join the nation’s No. 26 ranked player and McDonald’s All-American Flaujae Johnson, junior college transfer Last-Tear Poa, an NJCAA First-Team All-American, the Dallas Morning News Player of the Year in Sa’Myah Smith, and Alisa Williams.

“I believe in Coach Mulkey, and what we want together as a program,” said Poole. “With her passion and love for the game, I can only work harder. Geaux Tigers!”

The Bronx, NY native started 13 of the first 14 games for Ohio State, before suffering a minor injury. She averaged 4.8 points and 2.4 assists per game in 25 games played. Poole also had four games where she put up double figures.

Poole played in all 20 games of her freshman season and started the final five. Averaging 6.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.0 assists, Poole earned a spot on the Big 10 All-Freshman team. She scored in double-figures four times during her first collegiate season.
