UMass, Pepperdine Add Players

Pepperdine and Massachusetts received solid commitments on Wednesday. Here's a rundown of the newest members of their respective teams.

Maxwell, Diawara Reach Decisions

Highly sought after junior college big man Yakhouba Diawara is headed out west. "Yakhouba committed to Pepperdine today," Southern Idaho assistant coach Jay Cryiac said.

The big man had received interest from St. Louis, DePaul, Minnesota and St. John's throughout the recruiting process.

Maurice Maxwell is a 6-5 scorer with good athleticism who played at Philadelphia's Lutheran Christian last year. Maxwell visited Massachusetts last weekend and that visit pretty much locked it up for the Minutemen.
