Steve Lavin has St. John's on a recruiting roll with a third commitment from another highly sought after four-star prospect D'Angelo Harrison.
During a nationally televised press conference, Harrison spoke enthusiastically about the opportunity to play in New York City.
"I'm going to take it (my game) all the way to New York and play for St. John's," said Harrison, a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Fort Bend (Texas) Dulles High School. "I got to see everything I needed to see during my visit and make my decision a very good one. Location really doesn't matter to me, and I wanted to go play somewhere where I could be one of the top guys on the team."
One of the top shooters in the country, Harrison proved he is also one of the top scorers in the nation with his play over the summer for the Franchize All-Stars.
St. John's has a plan for utilizing Harrison in the rebuilding of the program.
"When I went to St. John's on an unofficial visit, they (coaching staff) had all this stuff on the board," he added. "Coach Lavin let me know this is where I would fit in, this is what we've got and this is where we're trying to get."
Harrison, the No. 41 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, chose St. John's over Baylor, Marquette and Oklahoma State. He joins fellow four-stars Jakarr Sampson and Maurice Harkless in St. John's recruiting class.
Prior to Harrison's commitment, St. John's had the No. 20 ranked recruiting class in the country.
