Four-Star Forward Mouhamed Dioubate Commits to the Tide
The Alabama men's basketball program continues to improve after a frustrating 2021-22 campaign, with the elite recruiting abilities of assistant coach Brian Hodgson being able to lure the talents of Mouhamed Dioubate.
Dioubate, a four-star power forward out of Putnam Science Academy in Flushing, NY, picked the Tide over many other programs such as Maryland, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, and Ohio State. Dioubate visited the Capstone on October 7th.
The New York native is an extremely versatile player, being able to get it done on both ends of the court. Dioubate plays similar to Alabama alum Herb Jones, who is regarded as one of the up-and-coming players in the NBA for the New Orleans Pelicans. The Tide desperately needed a player that is willing to play with hustle and tenacity at both ends of the court last season and Dioubate should provide that next season.
The 6-foot-7 forward is the fourth recruit so far in the Tide's 2023 class, joining Sam Walters, Davin Cosby, and R.J Johnson. Alabama currently possesses the No. 14 class so far as the hope to find a stronger sense of consistency and develop a winning culture in T-Town.
