MONROE, La. – The ULM men’s basketball team signed Majok Deng to a National Letter of Intent on Tuesday, bringing more height and athleticism to the program.
“Majok will add great length and skill level to our front line. He is a 6-10 player that has a unique ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter. He is coming to ULM from one of the top junior college programs in the country, and has played with and against very good competition the past two seasons,” said ULM head coach Keith Richard. “He adds another dimension to our team that will help us as we climb the Sun Belt standings.”
Deng played at Indian Hills Community College (Iowa) last season. He helped Indian Hills to a 34-3 record and a runner-up finish in the 2013-14 NJCAA National Championship.
As a post-player, Deng shot 45 percent from the field and registered 5.0 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He also shot 75 percent from the free throw line.
Deng grew up in Adelaide, Australia and was born in Sudan. He will have two years of eligibility remaining at ULM.
Deng becomes the sixth incoming student-athlete to join the 2014-15 recruiting class which includes Roderick Taylor, Mack Foster, Prince Cooper, Alex Brown and Justin Roberson.
