Westtown's Mohamed Bamba ends suspense, commits to Texas

Bamba, a five-star recruit according to ESPN.com, chose the Longhorns over runner-up Kentucky, Duke, and MI.

Bamba, a 7-foot forward from NY, becomes the fifth top-100 prospect from the Class of 2017 to commit to Texas - joining No. 47 Matt Coleman, No. 49 Jericho Sims, No. 85 Royce Hamm and No. 86 Jase Febres.

On the other hand, if Mamba had unexpectedly committed to MI basketball and both Wagner and Wilson returned, UM would have been in a pickle, cause they would be one scholarship short.

Bamba (6-11, 220), a forward from Westtown School (West Chester, Pa.) who played under coach Seth Berger, is ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in the nation by Rivals.com, No. 2 by Scout.com and No. 3 by ESPN.

Both players entered the draft but didn't hire an agent.

Also, insider Tony Wood bought 10,378 shares of the business's stock in a transaction that occurred on Tuesday, February 28th. The stock of Spirent Communications Plc (LON:SPT) earned "Buy" rating by Numis Securities on Monday, May 8.

The five-star center/power forward from NY, who surprised many by keeping MI in his final four teams, threw a final twist in his recruitment, choosing Texas.

The Longhorns' class now is No. 1 in the Big 12 and No. 4 nationally by the 247Sports Composite rankings. "He's as unique a person and player as I've been around". Bamba wrote that former Texas star and current Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant was his idol, and Durant tweeted his approval of the commitment.

Bamba was a staple on the postseason All-American game circuit, and he scored a game-high 17 points to go with five rebounds and four blocks at the McDonald's All-American Game in March. "I will be heading there in early June to get to work".

Bamba plans to pursue his interest in marketing within the McCombs School of Business.

"Mo's personality and dynamic skill-set fit extremely well with the other members of our incoming class as well as our returning players", Smart added. Fans in Austin should be very excited to see what he and the rest of the Longhorns can do.
