Moussa Cisse set to make decision next week (hopefully)

Moussa Cisse’s back-and-forth recruitment is officially coming to an end.

Well, possibly. Hopefully.

Tuesday afternoon, the five-star center in the class of 2020 tweeted “next week,” with several national analysts confirming that Cisse was referring to his college decision.

Back in May, the nation’s No. 9 overall prospect and No. 2 center announced he would be reclassifying up to the class of 2020. At the time he also said he would be making his decision the first week of June.

As his decision date approached, though, the five-star center decided to push back his announcement due to the ongoing protests and social unrest in the United States.

With racial injustice a big topic in the United States, Cisse thought it would be insensitive to make a commitment at the time.

“It’s bigger than basketball what’s going on right now,” a source close to Cisse told Evan Daniels of 247Sports. “We are to wait until things calm down a little bit. … It’s hard to say now [when a decision will come] as the situation is unpredictable.”

When a decision does come – hopefully next week – Cisse will ultimately decide between Florida State, Georgetown, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, and Memphis.

Regarding the likely landing spot, LSU is the overwhelming favorite on Cisse’s Crystal Ball, with eight of 11 picks coming in favor of the Tigers. Two of the other picks have the elite shot-blocker landing at Memphis.

With the delay, along with rumblings that LSU is the next school on the docket to get hit by the NCAA, will another school be able to pull off the upset?

      Since we are off topic, where are all the coal jobs that were supposed to come back to KY?

      What does my screen name have to do with Matt Jones writing about a noose hanging in a black man garage at a NASCAR track?

      That would not fit the KSR liberal indoctrination agenda

      Ky has never been more than a hat on the table in where he signs.
      With his comments saying racial injustice issues were holding up his decision, I would project FSU,Memphis, or Georgetown, in that order.

      Both parties have contributed to the slow decay of this country, could be because the country is being run like a corporation not a government. Corporations do not serve the people.

      4everukblue….exactly the opposite. The country is not being run like a corporation. I’ve worked for several. Corporations can’t spend more than they receive. It’s called bankruptcy. Most corporations actually have ethic rules. Most people don’t understand that especially if you’ve been brainwashed by the media. Sure there are crooked corporations but government at all levels is crooked. Friends, lobbyists and politicians in it for themselves have corrupted our government. I’ll take corporations over government any day.

      While we are off the subject, I could give two flips if the NBA and the NHL ever start again.

    KSR won’t write an article about it because it’s been such an embarrassment to the liberals.
