    Diallo dominant

    Throughout the entire EYBL, few big men have been as dominant on both ends of the floor as Cheick Diallo. Playing with Team Scan, the nation's No. 8 prospect has been showing all spring that he needs serious consideration for at leas the national top five. During a 20-point, 20-rebound and three-block performance against the Jackson Tigers and current No. 1 Malik Newman on Sunday morning, Diallo continued to build his case.




    While Diallo is on the slender side, he does have strength and plays with an incredible motor. He is quick off his feet, has tremendous length and can easily outrun most big men from block to block. Because he is so physically and athletically impressive, the improvement he has shown in his skill game probably hasn't been talked about enough.
    Diallo has become reliable with his jump hook, he can now make 12-foot jumpers with pretty good regularity, and his decision making with the ball is much improved. Averaging just under 19 points and nearly 11 rebounds per game while shooting over 63 percent from the field, Diallo has also been highly efficient through all four stops of the EYBL.

    The native of Mali has been happy with his play.

    "I think that I've been playing great," Diallo told Rivals.com. "I have to keep improving my free throws but I rebound, I block shots, I run the floor and I catch dunks."

    Asked to list schools, Diallo listed Pittsburgh, Iowa State, Kansas, St. John's, Syracuse, Kentucky and Connecticut. However, Diallo said he's likely to wait until the spring of 2015 to make his college choice.

    With regard to where he fits in the national picture, Diallo believes that he has proven himself as a top player, but he's not stressing rankings.

    "Sometimes I care, sometimes I don't," said Diallo about where he ranks. "I just want to play and have fun."

    Cheick Diallo knows his limitations, but the five-star forward is expanding them and gaining confidence in his game.
