Diane Lists Five Schools

After a solid showing this summer, shooting guard Mamadi Diane talked with Deaconsports.com about his recruiting and his play as of late.

Although not ranked in TheInsiders Top 100, Mamadi Diane is getting looks from some top tier programs. The 6-foot-5 guard lists Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Maryland, Virginia, and Georgetown as candidates for his services next year.

"No one has an edge, but it would be great to get away from this area, but no one really sticks out."

While no one has the edge, the DeMatha High School star did touch on the Deacons and why he was considering them.

"I like the environment (at Wake Forest), they are a smaller school with a good type of a setting. They are really high on academics which are very important to me and my family, and I liked talking to Coach Prosser, he's a real nice guy."

Even though he's known for his shooting, Diane still feels that it is something that he needs to continue to work on to prepare for college ball.

"I'm mostly working on my ball handling and redefining my shot, making myself more accurate. Most people are looking at me as a shooter and I need to make sure that's what I do best."

Diane also competes hard and plays through pain. He suffered a groin injury in Vegas but that didn't stop him from competing. His team made it to the quarterfinals of the Adidas Super 64 tournament and although he said the injury slowed him a little, he still played well.

Diane said he wants to sit down with his family and hopefully have a decision made for the fall. He has not set up any official visits.
