Two of the nicest high school prospects that I have had the pleasure to interview are 2019 twins, Fousseyni Drame and Hassan Drame. In 2016 they moved to New York where they attend Our Savior New American Boy’s. They came to New York from, Bamako, Mali. They both stand at 6’6″ and bring solid length and versatility to the court. They can shoot three’s, they can shoot with defenders in the face and they can score down low around the rim. On defense, they can block shots, steal the ball which can lead to easy transition buckets. Overall, they are two great wing prospects that can do a lot of good things on the court.
“We just play hard, we rebound the ball, we like to pass the ball, we can run the floor and that is what we do”, they both said.
When asked what they think there strengths are they included, “We care about our teammates, because we put our teammates first before us then like we try to make them better so that pushes us to play hard and rebound because we don’t have that many big men so overall our goal is to make our teammates better.”
When asked if they want to play together at the next level, they said, “Yeah, I think so, that is our goal.”
A good amount of schools are sticking out to both of them, “We have offers from St. John’s and Rutgers and we have interest from Villanova, Oregon, Creighton and Florida.”
Hassan broke down St. Johns, “They are a good team and they play with a lot of heart.”
Fousseyni discussed Rutgers, “Rutger is a good D1 team, their program is good and they have a good coach, I really like the coach.”
They have taken unofficial visits to both Rutgers and St. Johns.
Look for more schools to get involved with both of them before any decision to be made.
