A prized prospect, Alpha Diallo (Harlem, N.Y.) ended his recruitment on Tuesday with a commitment to Providence College.
The 6'6" shooting guard is expected to replace former standout Kris Dunn as the Friars' playmaker of the future. A gifted scorer, Diallo attended Abraham Lincoln High School (CO) before taking his talents to the NEPSAC and Brewster Academy (N.H.) this past season.
He averaged 16.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game as the Bobcats finished 25-10 overall. Providence (24-11, 10-8 Big East) advanced to this year's NCAA Tournament, eventually falling to runner-up North Carolina in the 2nd round.
