St. John’s landed a commitment from Sedee Keita, a 6-foot-9 power forward and former four-star prospect that spent his freshman season with South Carolina.

Keita averaged 1.1 points and 2.0 boards in less than 10 minutes a game for the Gamecocks, who made a run to the 2017 Final Four. He will sit out the 2017-18 season but have three years of eligibility remaining.

This is the third major addition for Chris Mullin this spring. St. John’s recently added Quinnipiac transfer Mikey Dixon and a commitment from four-star prospect Sid Wilson, who was originally a member of the 2018 class but reclassified into 2017.
