TCU basketball got a late addition to the squad at a huge position of need Tuesday night, in Canadian center Link Kabadyundi.

TCU basketball was desperately seeking another big body to help shore up the major rebounding deficit they faced in the 2013-14 season, and it seems they have done just that. Canadian center Link Kabadyundi has committed to TCU, according to his coach and multiple sources.

The 7'1" center from Montreal, Quebec was being looked at by the likes of Miami, Nebraska, USC, Minnesota, Buffalo, and Providence according to Rivals.com, and apparently his stock was rising quickly. As late as April, rumor was that Indiana also had interest in the big man.

It appears though, that none of those schools offered, and when it came time to decide, Link landed in Fort Worth.

Hoops Hype Canada had this to say about the big man, among other things:

At the next level, with added strength Link should be able to establish deep post position with ease. If he develops a consistent mid-range jumper, he’ll be an above-average NCAA center who can impact the game on both sides of the ball.  Length and athleticism are in ABUNDANCE. With no shortage of bulk and shot blocking ability look out for Link Kabadyundi. The big man is a late-bloomer, but his combination of shot-blocking and offensive skills makes him an intriguing option for any coach south of the border.

Ultimately, it can never hurt to add a 7-footer to your team, regardless of how little we may know about him.

Go Frogs.
