Quality Education Academy big man Ibrahima Diallo is beginning to pick up college interest. He has three scholarship offers and a host of other schools looking to evaluate him.

With the initial signing period just a month and a half away, college coaches are starting to examining their position with their respective recruits and out looking to find new prospects to add to their lists.

One name coaches are beginning to get to know is Ibrahima Diallo, a 6-foot-10 post player out of Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education Academy.

To date, Diallo has scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Old Dominion and UMass, plus interest from Nebraska, Clemson, North Carolina State, Oklahoma State, DePaul and Rutgers.

According to Quality Education Academy coach Isaac Pitts, Diallo has set up one official visit.

“He’s going to take a visit the last weekend in October,” Pitts told Scout.com. “He’s taking an official to Oklahoma. That’s the only visit he’s committed to.”

Diallo, who scored a 1350 on his SAT, tore his ACL between his sophomore and junior season, thus missed majority of his junior year. He then began to pick up attention after a strong performance at the adidas Invitational.

“He led his team to a championship in Indianapolis,” Pitts said. “But he fasted for the whole month of July, except for the first week. That’s where everybody saw him and loved him.”

Pitts said Diallo runs the floor well, rebounds and can score in the paint.

“He’s 6-10 with a 7-1 wing span,” he explained. “He’s chiseled up. He runs the floor excellent. He sprints the floor. He rebounded the ball exceptionally well on both ends. He rebounds outside of his position and he has very good touch around the basket with either hand.”

“Old Dominion and Clemson were in here at the other day and they asked me if he was left handed,” he said. “He’s good with both hands. He has excellent post moves. He can shoot the three even though we don’t let him do it that much.”
