LSU adds Aussie to Top 40 class

According to multiple reports, LSU head coach Johnny Jones landed a verbal commitment from Australian center Darcy Malone (Canberra, AUS/The ACT Academy of Sport) earlier this week.

Malone is a 7-footer who was a member of Australia's U17 national team. He joins a Tiger class currently ranked No. 11 on ESPN's RecruitingNation and features ESPN 100 prospects Jarrell Martin (Baton Rouge, La./Madison Prep), Jordan Mickey (Arlington, Texas/Prime Prep) and Tim Quarterman (Savannah, Ga./Johnson) along with junior college transfers John Odo (Hill College) and Deng Deng (Lee College).
