Konimba Diarra, the 6'10'' 230 pound big forward/center from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, committed to South Florida, according to the coaching staff at Our Savior.
Diarra recently took an official visit to South Florida. He had visited St. Joseph's officially too. The native of Mali also had some interest from Richmond at one time during his recruiting process.
Diarra is blessed with a sturdy frame and good athleticism. He runs the floor well, and impacts the game the most on the defensive end of the floor and on the glass. While he can knock down the occasional mid-range jumper, Konimba's offensive repertoire is still a work in progress.
Diarra suits up with The New York Elite AAU team, coached by Erik Jasklitsch and Chris Phillips. Konimba still needs a qualifying SAT score, and will take the test again this fall. He still has some ground to make up on the test, but is within striking distance.
