He helped lead Lee to an NJCAA D1 National Tournament appearance last season and averaged 10ppg and and 7.5rpg. Deng proved that he was one of the best JUCO players in the 2014 class last weekend at the All-American JUCO Showcase Elite 80 West in Las Vegas. He is extremely long and athletic and is able to finish above the rim through contact. Deng rebounds the ball very well on both ends and uses his length to get in passing lanes on the defensive end. He is continuing to improve his jumper and handle on the perimeter. His recruitment is continuing to pick up steam. He currently holds offers from: Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Washington State, Nebraska and Utah. He is receiving interest from Seton Hall, Miami (FL), Texas A &M and Alabama. Look for him to pick up more offers as the season approaches.
