2020 four-star center Mady Sissoko spent his summer gathering offers and taking college visits. But after a long recruiting process, it looks like he’s ready to make a decision.
Wasatch Academy, Sissoko’s school, announced on Friday that Sissoko has narrowed down his list to four. The teams on his list include BYU, Kansas, Memphis, and Michigan State.
The date of his commitment decision was also revealed. He’ll be making the announcement on Tuesday, September 10 at 9:30 p.m. EST live on Instagram.
247Sports ranks Sissoko as the No. 36 overall prospect in the nation. He is the No. 7 center in the nation, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Utah.

BYU is the only in-state program on Sissoko’s list, but hardly the most prestigious. It also appears that one team has set itself apart from the crowd.
247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions have Michigan State currently listed as the team most likely to land him. All four predictions have him winding up on Tom Izzo’s squad. He has visited the Spartans facilities twice this year, and had his official visit there this week.
His scouting report draws pro comparisons to Phoenix Suns center Cheick Diallo.
Will Mady Sissoko be playing for Tom Izzo and the Spartans in 2020? Or can Bill Self or Penny Hardaway sway the NBA-caliber center?
