Mohamed Bamba Says He’ll Decide Before the NBA Draft
Mohamed Bamba is in no rush to announce his college decision.
The 6-foot-11 big man from the Westtown (PA) School and the PSA Cardinals AAU program says he’ll announce sometime before the NBA Draft on June 22.
“This process has been so thought out and there’s a reason why I’m waiting this long,” Bamba told Krysten Peek of Rivals.com at the BallisLife All-American Game in Torrance, CA. “I really want to build that relationship with each coach.”
Asked if he will announce before the NBA Draft, Bamba said, “Definitely before the draft.”
Bamba is considering Duke, Kentucky, Michigan and Texas.
