Buffalo landed one of their top targets following an official visit.

The Buffalo Bulls landed a quality pledge on Tuesday with Detroit (Mich) Pershing guard Mory Diane. Diane ran with the REACH Legends over the summer, and the 6-foot-4 athletic guard showed that he is capable of a lot of good things on the court.

With his size and athleticism, Diane can find multiple ways to score, and that led to his recruitment picking up. Following an official visit to the MAC school, Diane selected the Bulls.

“I have committed to the University of Buffalo,” said Diane. “I really liked the coaches, they built a great relationship with my family and my coaches, and also the campus was really nice. I liked everything about the school when I went out there.”

The lead recruiter for the Bulls with Diane was former Detroit (Mich) Romulus Head Coach Nate Oats. Oats was very familiar with Diane from his time coaching against him in high school.

“At first I didn’t know about Coach Oats because I only remembered his teams beating us at Country Day,” said Diane with a laugh. “We started talking though and he was a real good guy, and I know he will help me get better. Also I really think as a guard Coach (Bobby) Hurley can really develop me as a player and help me be the best I can.”

This is a big commitment for the Bulls as Diane was getting interest from several in-state schools as well as many of their other MAC rivals.

Now the next step for Diane will be his high school season, and that will mark a bit of a change. Diane has decided to transfer from Detroit (Mich) Country Day to Detroit Pershing for his final year of school.

Diane there hopes to team with recent VCU commitment Justin Tillman to form one of the better duos in the state.
