Cady Lalanne, listed at 6-8 and 215 pounds, is currently a senior at Oak Ridge High School in Orlando Last year he averaged 17.2 points, 14 rebounds and 5.2 blocks per game for the Pioneers.
³Cady is a terrific young kid who has the ability to score inside and outside,² Fox said. ³One of the things we were looking for was a good interior offensive player, and I think we were able to find him in Cady. But his versatility on offense is something I really like, too. He was also very well-coached in high school, so I expect that his transition to college will be a smooth one.²
Lalanne is ranked as the #21 center prospect nationally by the Scout.com online recruiting service.
This is the second time that Fox has signed a Floridian to join the Bulldog program. Last spring Homestead native Vincent Williams became his first signee.
