- DENG VISITS THEN DECIDES
2014 JuCo forward Deng Deng of Lee College (Texas) trekked to Baton Rouge Thursday for a multi-day official visit to LSU's campus that ended on Saturday. Deng, who averaged around 20 points and 11 rebounds a game as a sophomore at Lee, was a long-time commitment for Johnny Jones and the Tigers last year as a 2013 prospect. After reclassifying he gave LSU another shot. Unfortunately, despite a reported good visit where Jordan Mickey was his host, Deng told reporters Sunday afternoon that he'd be committing to Baylor, where he'll sign on Monday.

- OWENS NAMES LSU HIS LEADER
Another target has emerged on the 2015 radar for LSU. Four-star PF Alex Owens (Orlando, FL) told Scout's Evan Daniels on Sunday that the Tigers now lead for his services. Owens, who plays on the same E1T1 AAU team as LSU commit Ben Simmons, was originally committed to UCF before reopening his recruitment. Various reports have Owens listed between 6-7 and 6-8 and between 220 and 235 pounds.

- TIGERS CHASING AFTER ADEL
LSU's dream for one Deng may have died, but there's another possibility out there for the Tigers. 2015 wing Deng Adel (Edgewater, FL) has an offer from LSU, and he continued his recent strong play at Bob Gibbons TOC this weekend. Evan Daniels believes Louisville is the current leader in the clubhouse for Adel and that the Cardinals will be tough to beat. Adel, who came to America from Australia but is of Sudanese heritage, measures 6-7 and around 180 pounds. His is a name and stock that should soar in the coming months.
