    Very high ceiling for this kid ... Give him 3-4 yrs in this system, and he’s going to be a defensive nightmare.

    If he puts it together, he could be very difficult to deal with in a few years.........

    IBRAHIMA DIALLO (SOPHOMORE – CENTER)
    NEEDS TO ... FIGURE OUT HOW TO IMPACT GAMES THE DEFENSIVE END
    More so than anybody else on the roster, Diallo has a long list of areas he needs to improve. Ohio State took his commitment knowing he'd be a developmental prospect, and that showed to be the case as he played only 40 total minutes across eight games as a freshman.

    Listed at 6-foot-10 and 220 pounds, Diallo has an enticing frame. But he still has to add some mass while expanding his game on both ends of the court.

    To maximize his value as a sophomore, Diallo has to improve his defense. Ohio State wants to be able to rely on him and/or Key this season. For Diallo, that would come by combining his shot-blocking ability, length and nimbleness with an improved understanding of defensive positioning. He has a long way to go with his offensive game, so what he offers on defense will likely be his most immediate impact.

    • Ibrahima Diallo - I’m not sure what to make of Diallo still. Ohio State needs some length, but the 6-foot-10 big man from Senegal has played in just 13 games during his first two seasons. Next season should expose if he’s going to be a real contributor for the Buckeyes or if he can’t quite cut it in the Big Ten.
