Jay Bilas praises LSU signee Ben Simmons

Ben Simmons, who has signed with the LSU Tigers, is considered to be the top incoming freshman for the 2015-16 college basketball season.

There has been plenty of excitement about Simmons’ arrival — with the Tigers even launched a video campaign for the upcoming season titled, “25 Is Coming” where fans can get season tickets beginning at $100.

However, it isn’t just the fans and LSU basketball coaches who are excited to see Simmons on the court.

ESPN’s Jay Bilas recently spoke about Simmons after watching his film from the Nike Basketball Academy. In short, Bilas believes Simmons is something very, very special.

If that wasn’t enough, Bilas continued to praise the incoming freshman by saying he was better than anything we’ve seen in the past year.

Wow. That’s some high praise. It’s going to be great to watch him on the court.
