UCLA Contacts Two Florida Recruits

UCLA has made contact with two 2013 prospects from the state of Florida...

  • Name: Fallou Ndoye
  • Classification: 2013
  • High School: Faith Baptist School (Fort Pierce, Florida)
  • AAU Team: D12 Warriors
  • Position: Center
  • HT-WT: 6-foot-11, 212 pounds
  • Colleges of Interest: Cincinnati, Cal-Poly, Jacksonville (offer), James Madison (offer), Kansas State, Marshall, Mississippi State (offer), Nevada (offer), Old Dominion, Southern Miss, UCLA, USC (offer), VCU, Virginia Tech (offer), Xavier

While playing with the very talented D12 Warriors AAU team this summer, including in the Peach State Summer Showcase July 18-22, Ndoye has accumulated six scholarship offers.

"Virginia Tech, Mississippi State, Nevada, USC, James Madison and Jacksonville have offered me," said Ndoye.

He's also receiving attention from a number of other colleges.

"Cincinnati, Kansas State, Southern Miss, Old Dominion, Marshall, Cal-Poly, VCU and Xavier are also showing interest in me," said Ndoye. (His AAU coach also mentioned that UCLA is showing interest in him.)

A big man, with long arms and a very athletic body, Ndoye talked about what he brings to his team when on the court.

"I take pride in my defense, I liked to block shots and to rebound," he said.

One area of his game that is still not quite where he would like it to be is his offense.

"I can score but I still need to work on my offense," said the talented youngster.

Keep it on GenesPage.com as we continue to follow Fallou Ndoye, one of several class of 2013 big men that Mississippi State head coach Rick Ray has offered.

"Right now, I have offers from Florida, USF, USC, Mississippi State, Penn State, Murray State, Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Illinois and several more," said Clayton, who is playing in the Peach State Summer Showcase July 18th through the 22nd.

Other schools are showing interest but haven't offered up to this point.

"I'm also receiving interest from FIU, Kansas State, Miami, UCLA, Southern Miss and South Alabama," said Clayton.

As for why he's received so many offers, Clayton explained what he brings to his team when on the court.

"I can do it all," he said. "I can shoot, pass, dribble, and I can find my open players. Defensively, I get uptight with my man and block shots. I try to get into their head."
