I am a fan of this commitment. You can't teach athleticism.

Maybe @Adunk33 would have info. Is he going to be the same position as Abdou Ndiaye? I see them both as 4's in college.

From what I've been reading he's more of a wing. He's shorter than Abdou so I'm not sure he can compete with a 4 on the boards.

I would place Sissoko in the McIntosh 3/4 range. Where as Abdou is a 3, 4, 5 guy. I have been watching some tape on HS and he looks to have some nice touch around the rim but doesn't look comfortable dribbling. His natural athletic ability leads to elite level shot blocking. He's shown the ability to steal and have some good court vision. I think the McIntosh comp is probably the most accurate. The only video I have seen of his jump shot is from what seems to be a pickup game. It looks like he has some ability there but also knows when to pick his spots. His skill set overall reminds me of a combo of McIntosh and DAP.

He looks like he was always the most athletic kid on the court.

Congrats to Sissoko. With his athleticism and Adbou here I am looking to those 2 as forwards when they are juniors and Rey is a senior. That's some solid length and athleticism that should give teams problems. If we can find a shooter who can space the floor that team could look really solid on paper.
