The fireworks are popping early in the LSU basketball offices.

Will Wade and the Tigers got a pre-July 4th gift on Friday, as five-star 2018 Baton Rouge point guard Javonte Smart announced his commitment to LSU.

Smart, the two-time Gatorade Player of the Year at Scotlandville High School, is a consensus top 25 national prospect and top five point guard. LSU beat Kentucky, Kansas, Oklahoma State, UCLA, and Florida State for his services.

ESPN ranks Smart the No. 24 prospect overall in 2018 and the No. 5 point guard. Scout rates him as the No. 1 point guard in the country and the No. 9 overall prospect, while Rivals has Smart as the No. 11 prospect and the third-ranked guard in his class.
