There may not be a better run and jump athlete in country. On raw explosion alone 6’8” Ibrahim Doumbia is elite.

Possibly The Most Explosive Player in the Country

There may not be a better run and jump athlete in country. On raw explosion alone 6’8” Ibrahim Doumbia is elite. On motor and timing alone, 6’8” Ibrahim Doumbia is elite. On upside and ceiling 6’8” Ibrhaim Doumbia is elite.

Now, he just has to get experience and have that beautiful present wrapped with a tidy bow. Doumbia has been working non-stop and that bow is getting there. Already committed to the University of South Carolina, the Senior from Mali is living up to all of that natural talent he was blessed with.

Doumbia is the first cousin of Cheick Diallo (the 33rd pick in 2016s NBA Draft). You can watch them play and see a lot of similarities when it comes to timing and motor. However, Diallo is more polished while Doumbia is more explosive. Keep in mind, Doumbia grew up playing soccer and has only really focused on basketball for 4 years now.

Doumbia first came over from Mali for his sophomore season at Arlington Country Day. There, he played a lot in the paint, utilizing his ability to block shots. He then moved to Miami Country Day for his junior and senior seasons. There, Doumbia has work hard on expanding his game to become a more perimeter oriented player.

Watch him now and he is defending multiple positions, while still volleyball spiking shots against the backboard. Still raw, you can find Doumbia stepping out and knocking down 3-pointers regularly when his feet are set.

All of that said, do not get away from his bread and butter. Doumbia is an elite athlete. He is one that will make you drop your jaw multiple times every game he plays in.

The South Carolina signee will bring his high flying act to Wilmington, North Carolina for Phenom’s Joe Miller Invitational, December 27-30. Enjoy his aerial act as you will be watching one of the best pure athlete’s this nation has.
