Diallo is a Friar

New England Recruiting Report | Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Alpha Diallo 2016

Brewster Academy swingman Alpha Diallo brought an end to his recruitment on Tuesday afternoon with a commitment to Providence.

He had accumulated other offers from the likes of Indiana, Florida, Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and numerous others over the course of his season with the Bobcats.

His pledge is a big one for Providence head coach Ed Cooley who now adds a versatile swingman capable of playing multiple positions, impacting the game on both ends of the floor and who also is continuing to improve on a consistent basis.

"I built a strong relationship with Coach Cooley and he has a clear vision for my future," Diallo told ESPN's Jeff Borzello following his decision.

He becomes the 7th member of Brewster's 2016 class to commit to a division I school joining Deleon Brown (Colorado), C.J. Keyser (Wichita State), Rapolas Ivanauskas (Northwestern), Malik Fitts (South Florida), Jack Lieb (Lehigh) and Zach Cameron-Chodes (Kennesaw State).

He was also one of the top five rated prospects left available in the country and the second best available prospect in New England. 

Other top rated local prospects who have yet to make a decision include fellow Brewster product and ESPN 100 prospect Taurean Thompson, St. Thomas More's Christian Vital and MacDuffie's Jorday Tshimanga.
