The USC Trojans have added on to their 2007 recruiting class with the addition of four-star prospect Mamadou Diarra. The 6-foot-10, 235-pound power forward from Stoneridge Prep in Calif., will provide some depth to USC's frontline.
Once coming to the States, Diarra made a splash on last summer's circuit with his ability to score the ball, and various colleges took notice. Along with USC, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Connecticut have all pursued Diarra.
The No. 65 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, Diarra joins five-star O.J. Mayo and three-star prospects Marcus Simmons and Leonard Washington in the Trojans' incoming class.
Mamadou Diarra scouting report:
Extremely long and mobile, Diarra can score from most anywhere on the court. He still needs time to round out his game and spend some time in the weight room, but the skilled forward has definite NBA potential.
