Syracuse Orange class of 2017 four-star commit Bourama Sidibe was nominated for the 2017 McDonald’s All American game. He’s looking to become the 21st player in program history to earn the honor.

Sidibe, who committed to the Orange on November 21, attends St. Benedict’s Prep in New Jersey. The 6-foot-11, 220-pound prospect took an official visit to SU’s campus for the season opener against Colgate. He watched practice at the Melo Center the following day.

His coach, Mark Taylor, says Sidibe will be ready to contribute on Syracuse’s team next season, especially on the defensive end of the floor. His long, lanky frame is the most attractive part to his game, said Taylor.
