6-8 Ibrahim Doumbia, a native of Mali who attends high school in Miami, made an official visit to USC over the weekend. That was his first official visit and right now Doumbia isn’t planning to take many more.
“It went good, the visit went good, it was very good, it was a good experience,” Doumbia said. “The academics (stood out). They have a good business school and that’s what I want to study for college. And I think the coaches are really good, too. They tell me that they have a good program for guys like me, too. I’m just happy about it.”
Doumbia said the Gamecocks talked with him about playing inside and outside. He said he averaged 18 points per game last season and can play on the perimeter.
This weekend Doumbia will visit Florida and right now he has no other visits planned. But he’s not sure yet if the decision will come down to just the Gamecocks and Gators. He’s also hearing from Virginia Tech and a little bit from Tennessee. And he’s not yet sure if he’ll sign early.
