Bama lands top JUCO Center in the nation

The number one rated JUCO Center, Moussa Gueye, has committed to Coach Grant and the Crimson Tide. He was previously committed to Valparaiso, and also had offers from Indiana and Texas. He is listed at 7 foot, 270 lbs. Orinially from Senegal, he is playing at Lake Land College in Mattoon, IL, where he averaged 11 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game.

The good news is, it will give us more depth at center, and he obviously has good size. I am a little concerned as to whether he can run the court in our style of play at 270, but all the reports I have read describe him as "very mobile" and a great athlete. I just hope this doesn't mean we are not getting Angelo Chol. If we could still land Chol, along with Gueye and Endstrom, we will easily have our most internationally diverse team ever next year.
