6′-9″ center Moustapha Diagne committed to the Syracuse Orange on Saturday, and the Orange have four top-100 caliber recruits now pledged in the junior class.

Though it is still quite early, the addition of Diagne solidifies the Orange’s place as the No. 1 class in the land, to date, for 2015.

Diagne announced for Syracuse over Memphis, while at the Mary Kline Classic.

According to NJ.com. Diagne averaged 17.2 points and 13.9 rebounds per game, as a junior at Pope John XXIII (NJ). He is a substantial big man, with 230 pounds on his frame.

Diagne joins guards Franklin Howard and Malachi Richardson, as well as face up forward Tyler Lydon in the class for the Orange. All are considered top-100 prospects.
