Mr. Clutch is getting much some deserved recognition.

LSU’s freshman phenom point guard Tremont Waters has been named to the SEC All-Freshman Team, announced on Tuesday.

Waters joins eight other SEC freshman on the list. Other names include Colin Sexton, Daniel Gafford, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kevon Knox, Nick Weatherspoon, Jontray Porter and TJ Starks.

Waters is currently second in the conference in assists and first in steals. LSU returns to action on Thursday for the first game of the SEC men’s basketball tournament. The Tigers will face off against Mississippi State at 6 p.m. The game will be on the SEC Network.
