Boston College Basketball Recruiting: PF Idrissa Diallo Commits To Boston College

Jim Christian and the Eagles coaching staff got some BIG news on Saturday.

A day after learning that 2015 recruit Jeremy Miller re-opened his commitment, Jim Christian and the Eagles wasted no time in finding a replacement at the power forward position. According to Coach William Middlebrooks, former Cal commit Idrissa Diallo has committed to the Eagles.

A 6-foot-11, 225 power forward from Cathedral High School in Los Angeles, Diallo originally committed to Cal last November but reopened his commitment last month. Prior to committing to Cal, Diallo also claimed offers from Colorado, Oregon, UNLV, UCLA, USC and Virginia Tech.

Diallo is rated as the 128th best play in the 2014 class by Rivals; 159th according to 247Sports. Here is ESPN's scouting report on the PF ($):

Diallo has a high-major frame with broad shoulders, long arms, and a chiseled physique. He runs well in transition and is potentially an elite-level shot blocker. If given space he can finish with a 2-handed power jam and he is just scratching his impressive potential.

And more from Rivals national recruiting analyst Eric Bossi:

"Long and rangy big man is very athletic and has loads of upside. Runs extremely well, quick off his feet and has a frame that should allow him to add strength without losing athleticism. Has to continue to upgrade his skill."

Couldn't ask for a better start for Jim Christian and the new Eagles coaching staff. At 6-foot-11, Diallo fills a major program void; especially for a team that's struggled mightily on the glass the past few years. Have to figure he'll have the opportunity to contribute right away. Diallo is Christian's first Boston College commit and first in the 2014 class.

Welcome to the Heights, Idrissa!
