Christian lands Diallo

Jim Christian received his first BC commitment when California big man Idrissa Diallo committed Saturday. Although I think the staff would have taken a commitment from one of several different players, Diallo represents such a change in approach, that it is fitting he was first. While not as polished offensively as most of our current guys, Diallo has two things this roster was lacking: size and defensive prowess.

Diallo originally committed to Cal, but got out of his LOI during their coaching change. With Diallo alone, we are a better team. I hope though that Christian is not done with this recruiting class. We have a few offers out and will hopefully land at least one more player in the coming weeks.

This is terrific news. Sounds like he's an athlete, this is what you need in the ACC, not just size. Caudill, Clifford , and even Anderson have size, but none could match up physically in our league. Let's hope Terrell is next. He too sounds like a big strong guy. We won't know till we see them play if they also have the toughness that has been so obviously lacking the last 3 years, but this is a great start.

An ACC quality big man, haven't had that in years.

Any updates on Terrell?
