Looked on ESPN to see if I missed anyone who Gonzaga is recruiting. JucoRecruiting.com happened to publish this article just last week:

Deng Deng is from Melbourne, Australia and will have 2 years of eligibility remaining in fall 2014 and both ESPN (http://espn.go.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/170406/deng-deng) and Rivals (http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/recruiting/player-Deng-Deng-143551) list him as a power forward


Deng Deng, a 6-8 guard/forward at Lee College, is one of the more versatile JUCO players in the country, and plenty of schools would like his services for the next two years. He is long and very active on both ends of the court. Deng has an excellent motor and uses his length to get his hands in passing lanes. On the offensive end he excels in transition and is able to use his length and athleticism to score the ball around the rim. He also has the ability to step away from the basket and attack off the dribble as well. Deng averaged 10 points and 8 rebounds last season at Lee and helped lead them to an NJCAA D1 National Tournament appearance. Deng committed to LSU last season, but eventually opened his recruitment back up.

Deng won’t sign until the spring and is still wide open with his recruitment, but here are the schools who are actively recruiting him now (in no order): Baylor, Arizona St., Gonzaga, Texas Tech, Nebraska, Auburn, South Florida, Cincinnati and the University of Houston.

Lining up big options. Good strategy.

"Long with great motor"

Fits the bill exactly.
