Steve Alford has put together an impressive trio of big men in his 2014 recruiting class.

With five-star recruit Kevin Looney and Gyorgy Goloman already in the mix, Alford landed a commitment from Thomas Welsh on Tuesday. Welsh is a seven-footer that currently sits at No. 52 in Rivals top 150 rankings.

Welsh is an LA native that received plenty of interest from Pac-12 schools. Here’s our Eric Bossi breaks down his game:

“One of the most drastically improved players in the country. A big man who plays like a big man. He does his scoring in the paint with jump hooks, drop steps and offensive rebounding. Has great hands but lacks upper end athleticism.”
