This spring, Konimba Diarra left South Florida. Now, the native of Mali has a new home. He’ll play for the College of Charleston.

The frontline at the College of Charleston just got a little bigger. Konimba Diarra, a 6-foot-10 center out of Mali via South Florida, is transferring to play for Tom Herrion’s Cougars.

“We had about a list of 8 schools,” Chris Phillips, Diarra’s AAU coach. “He visited two schools unofficially – Manhattan and Fairfield – and he visited College of Charleston and Florida Atlantic officially.”

Diarra then narrowed his list further and came up with the College of Charleston. In the end, according to Phillips, the Cougars had the best style for his game.

”He saw the type of offense that they ran and thought it would be good for his game.”

Diarra is a solid, strong post up guy who should be one of the strongest rebounders in the Southern Conference. He’ll sit out this season and have two years remaining.
