OSU lack of big men cost them tremendously this past year. His on court presence is far more beneficial than his recruiting rankings. This is just what the Dr. ordered.

A 7 footer with a 7'9" wingspan, quick feet, and a good motor. I can't wait to see what coach Holtmann is able to do with this kid. The teams that made deep runs in the tournament all had quick long and active rim protectors like this.

Good luck to the kid. Not many big men can play tough. Hope he's the exception.

  Difficult to imagine a 7 foot 200 pound kid playing physical. We are more likely to be dumbfounded at how thin he is.

I see no downside here. We desperately need a back-up big man. Kyle Young and Andre Wesson had to play this role last year and they were both undersized for that job. With Greg Oden on staff, we should bring Diallo up to speed quicker than you might think.
