Mamadou Diarra will choose between UConn, VCU on Friday at 11:30 a.m.
Diarra will choose between UConn and Virginia Commonwealth, and the Huskies are deemed to be the favorite. Last month, Diarra's coach, Tom Espinosa, told the Register that "UConn has always been his dream school."
Diarra played for the Putnam Science Academy team last season, but the school is being shut down due to lack of funding. Woodstock has absorbed the PSA basketball team, which will play as a postgrad team, unaffiliated with Woodstock's existing varsity program.
Woodstock will also feature dynamic, 6-5 guard Hamidou Diallo, like Diarra a Queens, New York product who is also coveted by numerous top Division 1 programs, including UConn. Diallo is a Class of 2017 player.
Both Diarra and Diallo attended UConn's First Night festivities last fall.
