2015 forward Moustapha Diagne committed to Syracuse during the Mary Kline Classic at West Orange High School.
“It’s a good school, they have a good basketball program,” Diagne said to SNY.tv. “And Coach [Adrian] Autry, we built a good relationship and I feel comfortable with Syracuse.”
Diagne is ranked the fourth overall power forward in the 2015 class, and No. 24 overall by Scout.com. Diagne visited Syracuse three times, including Syracuse’s dramatic 91-89 win over Duke in overtime on Feb. 1.
Diagne joins a monster Syracuse class, which includes shooting guard Malachi Richardson, combo guard Frank Howard and power forward Tyler Lydon.
The Pope John XXIII product had whittled his list down to Memphis and Syracuse, and also held offers from a slew of other schools including Villanova, Rutgers. St. John’s, Cincinnati, UConn, Seton Hall and West Virginia.
