New school on Dieng's list?

The wait for Gorgui Dieng's decision continues. One of the top uncommitted players in the Class of 2010, Dieng continued to open eyes in the Double Pump Spring Tournament last weekend in Denver. On the recruiting front, a Pac-10 power recently called to inquire and Dieng is currently deciding whether to visit an ACC program before announcing his decision.

Gorgui Dieng is a popular guy this spring.

The 6-foot-10 center is one of the nation's top uncommitted prospects in the Class of 2010 and plans to make at least one more visit before making his college decision.

Last weekend, Dieng continued to open eyes at the Double Pump Spring Tournament in Denver. The MVP of last week's Kentucky Derby Festival Classic, Dieng was supposed to visit Colorado while out west but Buffalo coach Jeff Bezdelick left to take the Wake Forest job last week.

Now, Dieng is trying to decide if he'll check out the Demon Deacons and give Bezdelick's new program a chance.

"I don't know if he's going to visit Wake Forest or not," Dieng's coach, Rob Fulford said. "They want him to get down there for a visit. He likes Jeff. Now that he's at Wake's a little late. Same guy, different place. It's tough to totally switch to something else."

One school Dieng does plan to check out this week is Marquette. Fulford said Dieng will visit Marquette this weekend.

"He's out in Colorado right now with the Pump brothers playing in that tournament," Fulford said. "He's supposedly tearing it up. UCLA called [recently]. I guess everybody is catching wind that he's out there. But nothing has changed. He's going to take a couple of visits and then he'll call it."

Louisville appeared the favorite after Dieng's visit for the all-star game last weekend. Fulford told last week that he thought the Cardinals would win out in Dieng's recruitment. Dieng also said last weekend that his experience in Louisville helped the Cards cause in his recruitment.

"He's going to decide pretty quick after his visits," said Fulford.
