Souleymane, a native of Central Africa, has been in the United States since the beginning of the high school season. He's a guy who is going to take some time to develop on offense but can contribute in other areas.
According to his assistant coach at Laurinburg, he's made nice strides this year. "He's going to be a tremendous defensive player for them as far as shot blocking and rebounding. His offense is shaky but they're looking forward to him. They think he'll compliment James White."
If you're sitting there and thinking, "Wow, this happened quickly" well, you're right. "Andy Kennedy came down on the last open day and looked at him." Here we are just a few weeks later and he's a Bearcat.
In other Laurinburg news, small forward Joe Dickens is headed to Binghamton. That's a great level for Dickens and he's a nice looking scoring small forward.
