Nevada has made the finalist list for another Power 5 transfer.

LSU's Bradley Ezewiro has cut his list of potential destinations to UAB, Oregon State and Nevada and will visit the Wolf Pack's campus next month, per college basketball insider Adam Zagoria.

Ezewiro is a 6-foot-8, 246-pound forward/center who appeared in seven games for LSU last season, his freshman campaign. He scored 11 points with six rebounds and a block in 29 minutes. He made 4-of-10 shots and 3-of-6 free throws. He set career highs with minutes (seven) and points (five) against McNeese in a win in November. He's an undersized big man with a high motor, good athleticism and raw offensive game.

Ezewiro is originally from Southern California, playing for Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance, Calif., before transferring to Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va., for his senior season. As a high school junior, Ezewiro averaged 17.3 points and 10 rebounds per game. After graduating from high school, Ezewiro didn't play basketball in 2020-21 before enrolling at LSU. He will have three years of eligibility at his next school and can play immediately as a first-time transfer.

The 19-year-old left-hander was a three-star recruit coming of high school. 247Sports.com ranked him as the No. 269 prospect in the 2021 class, picking LSU over offers from USC, Arizona State, Tennessee, Oregon State, TCU, Washington State and Virginia Tech, among others. Nevada also offered Ezewiro a scholarship coming out of high school, so he has a previous relationship with the Wolf Pack staff.

Nevada also is one of three finalists for Texas Tech transfer Chibuzo Agbo and Oregon State transfer Jarod Lucas, who is down to Nevada. SDSU, Washington State, Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M.. The Wolf Pack is rebuilding its roster after losing five scholarship players to the transfer portal this offseason, including starters Grant Sherfield, Desmond Cambridge Jr. (signed with Arizona State) and Warren Washington (signed with Arizona State) as well as backups DeAndre Henry and Alem Huseinovic.

The Wolf Pack has four open scholarships and is searching for its first transfer addition of the offseason after signing high school recruits Trey Pettigrew and Darrion Williams in the 2022 class. Here is a look at the Wolf Pack's current roster for the 2022-23 season.
