IMG Academy tweeted that Mangok Mathiang, a 6-foot-10, 205-pound center from Melbourne, Australia has signed with the Cardinals.
Orginally expected to be in the Class of 2013, reports say Mathiang will reclassify to Class of 2012 and be eligible for the 2012-13 season.
Mathiang played his junior high school season at a prep school in Carbondale, Illinois.
The Cardinals lost an earlier Class of 2012 signee when it was announced that Ohio guard Terry Rozier would instead enroll at a prep school in hopes of gaining academic eligibility for the 2012-13 season.
By the way, Mangok is actually pronounced “Mango.”
