Jamie Dixon

TCU nabs Australian standout

TCU adds third pledge of 2017 class with the commitment of Australian standout Lat Mayen.

TCU's men's basketball team picked up their third verbal pledge of 2017 on Tuesday.

Aussie star Lat Mayen committed to Jamie Dixon and his staff, according to sources. 

This is the second Aussie to commit to TCU in as many recruiting classes. TCU assistant David Patrick has deep ties to Australia and has previously signed 19 prospects from the country. 

Mayen, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound forward out of Australian Centre of Excellence, is thought of as the second best prospect from Australia that is expected to play college basketball next season. 

Mayen is originally from Adelaide in South Australia.

TCU also holds commitments from four-star recruits Kelvin Samuel and R.J. Nembhard to make up their current recruiting class.
