Adrame Diongue is one of the best available unsigned senior big men left on the board. He has yet to take a college visit but says he would like to see Texas, Kansas, Illinois, Texas Tech, Oregon State, and maybe a few others. He says he hears the most from Texas, Kansas, and Illinois.

Diongue says his strengths are “running the floor hard, grabbing rebounds, and dunking balls.” Adding to that, he defends, blocks shots, and plays with effort on both sides of the ball. He’s incredibly long and athletic, and while his skills are a little raw, his upside is tremendous. Diongue says the two main things he would like to improve on is his shot and dribbling.

Illinois: “I like how they play. They play with a big man and I see myself there too. The way I play is the way they play, getting up and down the floor, screen and roll, dunk every ball, post up.”

When asked what he likes about Texas and Kansas, he replied “pretty much the same thing (as Illinois.)

Diongue arrived from West Africa three years ago. Since arriving in the United States, he’s attended a few different high schools but is currently in his second year at AZ Compass Prep.

“They’ve helped me become a better basketball player by just developing me every single day. Just grinding,” Diongue says of Compass Prep.
