JUCO PF visiting Clemson

This weekend, the Clemson basketball program will host two uncommitted big men for official visits. Both are natives of Africa.

Center Sidy Mohamed Djitte and power forward Ibrahim Djambo will be in Tigertown over the weekend.

"I want to see how I can fit into the team. That's what I'm trying to see. I just want to fit. I want to see if it's somewhere I can fit and feel like I'm at home," Djambo told CUTigers on Monday night.

A second-year player at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Mo., Djambo, who's from Mali, has two years of college eligibility left.

He's already taken official visits to Loyola of Chicago and Southern Illinois. After the Clemson trip, Djambo is scheduled to see Southern Miss then Saint Louis.

A decision will be announced on April 30.

Djambo has been in contact with Clemson -- primarily through assistant Earl Grant -- for the last three months.

"[Grant] tells me it's a great program. They want to get better and try to compete nationally. He's told me some stuff about how they play," Djambo said. "I need to go on this visit and learn more about it, because I don't really know much about it."

Several factors will be considered as he moves towards a decision.

"How the weather is. How I can fit into the team. Do they play more through the point guard or the big man -- the four guy? I'm trying to see how things work. If the team, are they like a family or if they're like teammates," Djambo said.

The 6-foot-10, 205-pound forward described himself as a hard worker.

"I always give all I've got. I can shoot the ball. I can pass. I can guard. I can rebound. I'm doing everything that can help the team to win," he said.

In 25 games [21 starts] this season with Three Rivers, Djambo averaged 18 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game.
