PISCATAWAY — Center Ibrahima Diallo of Senegal has signed a letter of intent to play at Rutgers next season.

Scarlet Knights coach Eddie Jordan announced the signing of the 6-foot-10 Diallo on Monday. He averaged 13.0 points, 15.0 rebounds and 5.0 blocks at Quality Education Academy in Winston Salem, N.C.

"He is a dedicated student with tons of potential and an engaging personality," Jordan said. "With his length, athleticism and shot blocking ability, we believe he can make a significant defensive impact. Offensively, he has a nice touch around the basket and the ability to score with both hands."

Diallo joins incoming junior guard Bishop Daniels (Raleigh, N.C.), freshman forward D.J. Foreman (Spring Valley, N.Y.) and freshman guard Mike Williams (New York) in the Scarlet Knights' 2014 recruiting class.
