Chambers Lands Lithuanian Forward Deividas Zemgulis

Patrick Chambers added a commitment to his 2015 class tonight, picking up 3-star small forward Deividas Zemgulis of Lithuania.

Zemgulis, a 6-foot-6 forward at St. Mary’s Ryken High School in Leonardtown, Maryland, was assistant coach Dwayne Anderson’s first recruit to commit to Penn State.

In 29 games during his 2013-14 season, Zemgulis averaged just over 13 points an outing. According to Max Preps, Zemgulis is ranked 875th nationally, and 20th in Maryland.

The forward also played for the Lithuanian U-16 national team in the European Championship, and averaged five points and 3.6 rebounds a game in eight contests.

There isn’t that much more information on the big man, but from the looks of this video, he’ll be yet another threat from beyond the arc.

Zemgulis joins 6-foot-9 center Mike Watkins as the only other commitment to Chambers’ 2015 class. Along with 2014 commits Shep Garner, Devin Foster, and Isaiah Washington, current sophomores Brandon Taylor and Donovon Jack will still be around Zemgulis’ freshman year.
