    That is a name fit for a big man. I would never been very disappointed to open up this thread and see that Mr. Bamba was a 5'11 PG.

    Longest wingspan in the class, I'm sure NBA scouts are drooling.

    In this soft, PC world? Never! Lol. Kobe named himself so calling him
    that is apparently okay.

    Welcome to another edition of over analyzing things on twitter.

    Mo just joined today, at least according to Bam Adebayo, it still might be fake.


    Anyways, he went heavy on following UConn accounts. No other school on his follower list is represented like UConn.
    Zach, UConnMBB, Vance, Jalen, Hami (hopefully a husky one day), Rique, Mamadou, Sterling, Rodney, KO and last but not least Boatright.

    All indications are he's a Duke lean but I choose to believe, many will disagree, this is positive sign in our recruitment.

    @CGarr it's almost funny the hints we get that Diallo is ours. For anyone wondering, this is what his following looks like. Made me chuckle...

    Bamba also is following almost all of Kentucky's players FWIW in regards to his recruitment. Also odd that he seems less into Duke than people thought. Didn't even include them in his avatar.

    I agree it's probably not a coincidence he grouped Hami with all the UConn accounts but it's dumb to never count out Calipari. A UK offer would scare the Scalito out of me.

    At the same rate, there's a chance Calipari realizes he's ours, knows he has many options, and opts not "losing" to Ollie. Have you heard him in interviews being asked about losing a recruit that he wants? He literally claims he never has. It's petty as all hell, but it really matters to the guy.

    I agree. I've thought the same thing. Why else wouldn't he have offered by now. He's seen him in person enough. That said, Calipari still scares the Scalito out of me.

    Of course, it's a fake account. Never mind everything I said.

    Borges says Bamba is almost a lock to Duke -- wants to play with Frank Jackson.

    Yeah well Zach Brown wanted to play with Rique and pretty sure Brown commitment would make it difficult to land another blue chip big in 2017

    Yep and that's okay with me. As someone said in another thread, lock up Diallo and Ashton-Langford then call it a day.

    Just noticed on Scout that our logo is listed first next to this kid. Does that mean the guys at scout think we lead for him? I have no problem with KO recruiting over Brown if that is the case.

    They're alphabetical within the same "interest level." So, not sure what makes the difference between "low" and "medium" interest, but we are the first letter school in "medium."
