Four-star power forward Romello White has signed a letter of intent with Arizona State and Bobby Hurley, adding some much needed frontcourt depth to the Sun Devils' roster next season.

White initially signed with Georgia Tech and former head coach Brian Gregory, but after Josh Pastner was hired in early April, White received his release from his letter of intent last week. The Sun Devils hosted the power forward on campus earlier in the week.

White, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound forward, hails from Bradenton, Florida. Scout.com ranks him as the No. 15 power forward in the 2016 class.

He will be the third four-star recruit coming to Tempe for the following season. Forward Jethro Tshisumpa, top-50 swingman Sam Cunliffe and Ukranian forward Vitaly Shibel round out ASU's recruiting class.

Tshisumpa and White will likely fight for decent minutes in the frontcourt as the Sun Devils return just one post player who played last season.

White also held an offer from Iowa State.
