Former Syracuse Commit Moustapha Diagne Enrolled At Northwest Florida State College

New, 15 comments

Diagne will play for the defending JUCO National Champs this year.

Last week news broke that incoming Syracuse Orange freshman forward Moustapha Diagne would not enroll at Syracuse and would instead enroll at a junior college. Now, Mike Waters of Syracuse.com reports that Diagne has enrolled at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, FL. Waters confirmed the news with Diagne's host father.

Diagne joins a team coming off a junior college National Championship that will look to repeat in 2015-2016. Their head coach is Steve deMeo, a former longtime Providence Friars assistant coach who also had stints with Iona, Hofstra and UCF. He was named 2015 NJCAA Division I National Coach of the Year following the school's title run last year.

According to Waters, the NCAA is checking on a course that Diagne took in Senegal. Without the NCAA approving the course, Diagne could not be cleared as eligible to play at Syracuse this year.
