An already stacked 2015 recruiting class got even more crowded for St. John's on Saturday when Sammy Thompkins' AAU coach announced Thompkins would be playing for the Red Storm next season.

Thompkins, a shooting guard from Phoenix, Arizona, visited St. John's last weekend. Currently he is the 361st best player in 247Sports' class of 2015 rankings, but the third best player in the state of Arizona, so he definitely could be a diamond in the rough.
