Arizona State basketball added more size for next season with a commitment from 6-10 junior college power forward De'Quon Lake.

Lake averaged 13.5 points and 7.2 rebounds as a sophomore at Iowa Western Community College and also was considering Kansas State and Rutgers.

ASU now has four players in its 2017 recruiting class. Guard Remy Martin and 6-5 wing Kimani Lawrence signed last fall. Lake and 6-8 forward Kenny Wooten will sign next month.

Lake is from the Virgin Islands and grew up in Newport News, Va., attending Menchville High School, where he averaged 21.9 points and 11.3 rebounds as a senior. He was an all-region selection as a freshman at Iowa Western when he only started twice. He played baseball through ninth grade before growing into basketball.

Lake mentioned school, location, facilities and coaches among his reasons for choosing ASU. "They really needed a big man," he said. "I really liked coach (Bobby) Hurley. He is a pretty honest guy and was straight up. He cares about his players."

The Sun Devils also will add 6-8 Romello White, 6-7 Mickey Mitchell and 6-9 Vitaliy Shibel in 2017-18 after that trio sat out this season for various reasons. Mitchell is a transfer from Ohio State.

ASU's only post players this season were starter Obinna Oleka, who is a departing senior, and backups Ramon Vila, Andre Adams and Jethro Tshisumpa. The Sun Devils (15-18) largely played with a four-guard lineup and 6-8 Oleka.
