Tanner Lancona, a 6-foot-8 power forward from Southern California, has made an oral commitment to St. Louis U. Lancona had originally committed to Washington State, but was released by what was described as a mutual agreement. He chose SLU over Kansas State, Colorado State and BYU. He averaged 16.6 points and eight rebounds at Tesoro High in Las Flores, Calif., in southern Orange County, and can, with a game reminiscent of Cody Ellis, can shoot 3-pointers, run the floor and rebound. Lancona joins Mike Crawford, a 6-4 guard-forward, and Reggie Agbeko, another 6-8 power forward (though more of a low block player) in Jim Crews' first recruiting class. SLU has one more scholarship for next season.
