Friars gain athleticism with ESPN 100 SF

ESPN 100 small forward Jalen Lindsey (Franklin, Tenn./Huntington Prep) ended his recruitment Monday night by committing to Providence over offers from Tennessee, Florida, Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State and others.

Lindsey is ranked the No. 32 prospect in the ESPN 100 and is the Friars’ first pledge in the 2014 class.

"I chose Providence because they recruited me the hardest and were the most sincere,” Lindsey said. “I believe coach Ed Cooley is a great coach, and he is the best fit to help me showcase my skills and help me reach my dream to become a NBA player."

So what will Providence be getting in the four-star recruit?
