Diallo is just starting the process

Cheick Diallo is one of the more heavily recruited players in the 2015 class, and is just now beginning to take a serious look at his recruitment.

The progress made by Centereach (NY) Our Savior standout Cheick Diallo over the past year has been impressive. Now a five-star prospect, Diallo was dominant at times this summer, and is just now getting focused on the recruiting process.

At 6-foot-9 and 210 pounds, Diallo has the size and athleticism to dominate down low. Also he has the work ethic, and that led to an excellent summer.

"My summer was really good. I played with a great team, and I just tried to work hard and do the best I could," said Diallo. "I was happy with how I played this summer."

That excellent summer led to him being considered one of the elite players in the country, and for Diallo that means he has to work harder to stay there.

"It just makes me want to practice harder and to continue to work on my game," noted Diallo.

Recruiting wise it is a laundry list of schools after Diallo. Syracuse, Connecticut, Arizona, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Kentucky, St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova, Florida, Miami, Kansas, UNLV, and others are all seriously in the mix.

Diallo right now says he is just beginning to look at things, but he is happy to have so many options.

"I'm happy to be recruited at this level," Diallo explained. "I don't talk to the coaches too much, but it is a great honor to have schools recruiting me. I think I have 25 offers or so, but my goal is to keep getting better every day."

For now Diallo isn't focused on his recruitment, instead he is focused on getting better and he is out to prove to people that he is a complete player.

"I want to show people that I have better post moves and that I am a better shooter than they think I am," said Diallo.

Currently Diallo is ranked as the No. 6 player in the country.
