Idaho lands a JC 'big"

Credit goes to poster GoVandals1893 at the Scout site basketball message board for this find: Djim Bandoumel, a 6-foot-8, 215 pound power forward from Monroe Community College (Bronx, New York) (the same college as Westly Perryman, Boise State's new backcourter) has verbally committed to Coach Don Verlin and Idaho.

The young man is from Quebec and played in 31 games last season, scoring 4.8 points and grabbing three rebounds a contest. He shot 63% from the floor. Bandoumel went 25-44 from the foul line and blocked 1.2 shots each time out.

He's a big time jumper -- here's a snippet from an August 2006 camp: "Day three of the camp included a slam-dunk contest and All-America games in each of the four divisions. In the slam-dunk contest big John Brown from Cincinnati put a serious display of power with his dunks. By most accounts, Brown was the contest winner, followed closely by 6’6 Djmanoum Bandoumel from Canada."

Here is his Facebook page. The photo above is taken from that page.
