Mohamed Djitte visits N.C. State

Sidy Mohamed Djitte took an unofficial visit to North Carolina State this past weekend. He's also scheduled two more trips over the next two weeks.

High major schools have been tracking Sidy Mohamed Djitte this season.

So far the numbers Mohamed Djitte is putting up warrant the interest. According to his travel team coach Curt Wheeler, his strong play continued this week.

"On Monday they played Fayetteville Academy he had 26 points, 25 rebounds and seven blocks," Wheeler told "Then last night he had 29 points and 22 rebounds."

"It's pretty impressive," Wheeler added. "He's being physical and just being around the basket and blocking shots and rebounding."

Mohamed Djitte, a standout at Fayetteville (N.C.) Northwood Temple Academy, took his second college visit this past weekend, as he traveled to Raleigh (N.C.) to check out North Carolina State.

"He loved it," Wheeler said. "They had a great atmosphere. He had a lot fun. The first visit he went on was Coastal Carolina versus Clemson and that was fine, but NC State/Duke was just a big deal. He sat right behind the bench."

"They are heavily involved," he added about N.C. State. "Their staff has seen him play and they all like him. Academically it's a great fit. He's just got to look at the roster."

Clemson is also heavily in the mix for Mohamed Djitte. He's planning on visiting them again January 27th.

"Clemson has an early opportunity for playing time that's for sure," Wheeler said. "With they way they like to play he will definitely get post touches. All the ACC schools are good academic schools. They've done a good job recruiting him."

Houston was in to see Mohamed Djitte last night. South Carolina, Ohio State and North Carolina State have also been in to evaluate him this week.

Mohamed Djitte, who likely won't decide until April, is also scheduled to visit Old Dominion this weekend.
