Cheikh N'Diaye Commits To Oregon State
Army-Navy Academy (Carlsbad, Calif.) head coach Tom Tarantino confirmed Wednesday morning that senior center Cheikh N'Diaye has committed to Oregon State.
"He called Coach (Craig) Robinson last night," Tarantino said. "He is tremendously excited. He was looking for a family atmosphere and felt that Oregon State was a close-knit crew."
N'Diaye, listed at 7-foot-1 and 230 pounds on Army-Navy's 2011-12 roster, averaged 11.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 5.3 blocked shots per game during an injury-marred junior campaign.
