Diagne gives verbal commitment
Heading into Saturday, Syracuse was tied with Ohio State with the most top 100 commitments in the 2015 class. On Saturday, they Jim Beoheim and Syracuse broke the tie adding 6-foot-8 power forward Moustapha Diagne to the fold. "It's a good school and I talked to their coach and they have a great basketball program it's a good school for me," Diange told Scout.com regarding his decision. "I have a good relationship with coach [Adrian] Autry." "Throughout the process we got to know each other," he added about his relationship with Autry. "I just felt comfortable." Diange, of Sparta (N.J.) Pope John XXIII, said Syracuse just felt like home. "It was not easy for me because other schools were looking at me hard," Diagne said. "But at one point I felt like Syracuse is a better fit for me and is a good school and I can do well there." Diagne visited Syracuse on February 1st. Diange also considered Memphis.
