    Moussa Cisse is now expected to announce his college decision next week.

    The 6-foot-10 big man announced on May 27 he was reclassifying to 2020 from 2021. He listed Florida State, Georgetown, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU and Memphis as his final six.

    Cisse, who averaged 18.4 points, 15.3 rebounds and 9.2 blocks per game last season, is anxious to get to the next level in college.

    “College and high school are very different,” he told ESPN. “Reclassifying is going to help me playing against better competition. I’ve been playing in open gyms in Memphis against top college players like James Wiseman and Precious Achiuwa and saw that I can compete against them. Playing against older and more experienced players in college will speed up my development.”
