Local Basketball star Matt Derenbecker will be trading in his high school uniform for the purple and gold of LSU after his run at Country Day.

One of the top recruits for 2010, the 6'7" Guard made a public commitment to Tiger Basketball Coach Trent Johnson on Thursday, choosing to go to Baton Rouge over several other high profile offers from other colleges including Stanford.

Derenbecker averaged 22 points per game last season as he led Country Day to the Class 1-A State Championship, also nabbing MVP honors in the process.

Ed Daniels will have more to come this evening on ABC26 News at 6:30 and 10.
