Guten nachmittag, St. John's fans!

Guten nachmittag, of course, means "good afternoon" in German, a language you may want to familiarize yourself with, since four-star German forward Richard Freudenberg committed to the Red Storm on Thursday morning.

Freudenberg currently plays for Bayern Munich (basketball, not FC) in Germany.

Red Storm assistant Matt Abdelmassih was the lead recruiter for Freudenberg, as noted by Zach Braziller.

Freudenberg's commitment propels St. John's class to the best in the Big East next season, as 247Sports' Jerry Meyer notes.

Below is a video of Freudenberg from the U18 Euro Championship last summer.
