Five-star big man Moussa Diabate commits to Michigan basketball
Michigan basketball’s recruiting keeps on rolling.
The Wolverines landed a commitment from Moussa Diabate, a five-star big man from Florida’s IMG Academy, on Monday.
Listed at 6-foot-10 and 215 pounds, Diabate is ranked the No. 20 overall recruit in the nation and No. 6 power forward, according to the 247Sports composite.
The France native held offers from Alabama, Arizona, Florida State, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis and Texas Tech, among others.
Diabate is the second top-20 prospect to commit to Michigan in 11 days and he solidifies Juwan Howard’s top-ranked 2021 recruiting class, joining five-star forward Caleb Houstan, four-star guards Frankie Collins and Kobe Bufkin, four-star wing Isaiah Barnes and three-star forward Will Tschetter.
With Diabate in the fold, Michigan, on paper, has no more available scholarships for the 2021-22 season. The Wolverines have also offered two other big men at IMG Academy: Efton Reid and Charles Bediako.
Michigan will have a chance to start locking down its class and securing commitments when the early signing period starts on Wednesday.
