Do you remember our man Abdoulaye Ouedraogo? He was the Burkina Faso-born, 6’8″ forward that the Cats were rumored to be considering this weekend and who, according to at least one source, may have visited in the last few days. So what happened with our man Abdou? Well I spoke this morning with a source who says that he is currently working out with the Georgetown College basketball team in Scott County. According to the source, Abdou has been working with the team for about a week and is potentially set to be a member of the Georgetown basketball team this fall.
But before you completely write Abdou off as a man to join the Tyrone Nashes of the world in UK lore, the source also says that UK still may have slight interest and has talked with the folks at Georgetown about his potentially playing at UK. No word what these conversations have been and it is very likely he still ends up playing for Georgetown this year, but the UK interest in him has not completely gone away.
Again, the same caveats we always have about rumors, but I am confident that Abdou is currently at Georgetown, which is quite a move from a Division III school in New Jersey. What happens next? We shall see…….
