Daniel Mading, a top-100 rated power forward out of Jersey City St. Anthony High School in New Jersey, committed to the Arizona State Sun Devils Tuesday night, according to Evan Daniels of Scout.com.
Mading, who stands 6-foot-8 and is originally from Australia, is ASU's first commit of the 2017 recruiting class. Scout.com rates him as the No. 11 power forward and the No. 64 prospect overall.
Mading has several interesting connections with ASU. He currently plays for Hurley's father, Bobby Sr., at St. Anthony's High School and is also the cousin of Hurley Jr.'s prized target, five-star center Thon Maker.
Here's a highlight reel from last year's John Lucas Midwest Camp:
Since taking over ASU last May, Hurley has received commitments from three top-100 prospects, the other two being No. 16 small forward Sam Cunliffe and No. 16 center Jethro Tshisumpa for the 2016 class.
Maker reiterated his short list of choices this week and plans to take another visit to ASU prior to making his awaited decision. Mading's commitment will likely help ASU's cause to land Maker.
