The interesting thing to me is that there is a top 100 commit to Connecticut for the 2016 class by the same name. I presume these are different people with very similar names.

This seems to be the Evansville player that was offered: http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/mamoudou-diarra The name appears to be Mamoudou Diarra.

This appears to be the top 100 Connecticut commit for the 2016 class: http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/mamadou-diarra-ny The name is Mamadou Diarra

So it might be a challenge to get highlights, etc on the correct guy. But he is listed as being offered. One would wonder if they are related.

I guess my question (to my own post): Is this offer real or did verbalcommits/Addias Uprising make a mistake?

Again I presume these are two different people. But when I Google I always just get info for the Connecticut commit, even on the Addias Uprising links. Confusing to say the least.

Different stats height, weight and school....

Maybe in Senegal that name is as common as Bob Jones........

This link from last October shows that this guy is for real: http://www.rockmnation.com/2015/10/9/9481935/mizzou-basketball-recruiting-trace-young-boko-mupungu-mamoudou-diarra-wyatt-yess

These were recruits that were visiting Missouri. Mamoudou is 3rd on the list and another 2017 UE recruit (Wyatt Yess) is fourth on the list.

^^ That release was the result of a coaching change at Washington in the last couple weeks.

Silas is from Nigeria and this kid is from Senegal/Mali. Both are in Northeast Africa. Not sure if that helps but it can't hurt.

I believe Mamoudou played with Daniel Sackey on the same AAU team in St. Louis. (Daniel we are recruiting in the 2018 class.)

Should be an interesting recruiting period. Remember though we didn't sign John Hall till June last year and Egidijus we didn't sign till August. We do need a quality big man and he would be guaranteed playing time. Probably needs to put on some weight but he would have some quality battles with Silas in practice.

Go Aces!!!
