Quaterman goes with LSU

Tim Quarterman committed to LSU on Sunday, becoming the second top 100 prospect to do so this week.

It's been a big week for LSU.

First Johnny Jones and his staff nabbed Jordan Mickey, a four-star recruit out of Texas. Then on Sunday, the Tigers were able to reel in another top 100 prospect in Tim Quarterman.

"He loved the atmosphere when he visited the school," Atlanta Celtic travel team coach Ralph Walton told Scout.com. "He has a chance to play point guard and play as a freshman."

According to Walton, Jones and his staff recruited Quaterman to play on the ball and he believes that's the best position for him.

"He believes he's a point guard," Walton said. "I definitely believe he's a point guard. I think that's his best position, verses doing some of the other stuff. He's a really good player and he can do a lot of things, but I think that's his best position."

Quaterman, a four-star prospect, also strongly considered George Mason, South Carolina, Miami and Alabama. Quarterman visited LSU two weeks ago.

Mickey's decision earlier in the week played a role in Quarterman announcing his choice, according to Walton.

"Having played them those two developed a mutual respect for each others game," Walton said. "They got in touch during the recruiting process and I think Jordan Mickey making it official helped seal the deal."

LSU now has four commitments for their 2013 class. Quaterman joins Mickey and two Junior College prospects – John Odoh and Deng Deng.

Quaterman, a 6-foot-5, 185-pounder, is ranked No. 80 overall in the 2013 class.
