Default Ibrahim Doumbia

Doumbia is scheduled to announce his college choice on Thursday 9/29/16. According to Phil Kornblut, Doumbia's only official visit has been to USC. Some are predicting he will choose USC. If he does, he would give USC an athletic combo forward who can score from the three point line on in.

Not being argumentative, just adding info; According to 247, he officially visited Florida on Sept. 16th. It does also, however, list him as 100% SC over UF, Baylor, UTk, and UTEP.

We seem to be in great position with him. If we get him we are beating out some other good programs. Hope to see him in the Garnet & Black.

According to TBS, he was scheduled to visit UF but ended up cancelling the day before he was due.

They are listing all the power forwards at each school that has offered him, as what depth each school has. They have us with senior Demetrius Henry, which is disappointing - that's a scout.com-ish thing to do.....

We really needed a a guy of his size. Perfect for the 3 or 4 spot. Wouldn't be surprised if he starts right away.

Getting Doumbia and Tut indicates to me that Frank wants to get bigger at the 3 position in the future.

We now have one scholarship open for one more recruit. I think we need a guard. I think getting Doumbia likely means that we won't get Claxton, unless he waits until Spring to sign and someone leaves the team to open a scholly.

Yep, feel sure our last slot will be filled by a guard.

Isn't Claxton pretty much a done deal to Georgia anyway?

Yep I think both Doumbia and Claxton would play the same position, so I doubt we'd take both of them in the same class.

Anyways, we will be heavily stocked with bigs now, if all things go according to plan and no one transfers out, gets dismissed, or de-commits from us. The 2017-18 roster would include:

Sr. 6-9 Tut
Jr. 6-9 Silva
So. 6-9 Keita
So. 6-10 Kotsar
So. 7-0 Gueye
Fr. 6-8 Doumbia
Fr. 7-1 Cudd

We would have waves of tall dudes rotating into games....

I would think two guards would be better.

I'd expect more scholarships to open. Why wouldn't they?
