(CBS) Northwestern basketball announced today the addition of Chier Ajou for the upcoming 2012-13 season.

At 7-foot-2, Ajou becomes the tallest player in Northwestern history.

“The addition of Chier completes a terrific freshman class that we’re very excited about,” Carmody said. “He is an outstanding young man who is athletic, has great upside and is a good fit for our program. He’ll provide our team with a dimension we haven’t seen in a while.”
