MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Remi Dibo, a 6-foot-9 junior college forward who provides most of his offense from the perimeter, committed to West Virginia on Tuesday night, becoming the sixth big man in the Mountaineers’ 2013 signing class.

At Casper (Wyo.) College last season, the French native Dibo scored 18.2 points per game while grabbing 4.9 rebounds and making 41 percent of his 3-point tries. As a freshman he averaged 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and shot 40 percent from 3-point range. Over two seasons, he shot better than 78 percent from the free-throw line.

In the highlight video above, Dibo shows potential as a “stretch-4″ — something WVU sorely lacked last season as it transitioned to the Big 12 and ranked among the bottom in 3-point shooting.

Upon finishing his senior season of high school ball at Mountain State Academy during the spring of 2010, Dibo planned to sign with Kentucky. But then five-star prospect Terrence Jones decommitted from Washington and took the Wildcats’ final scholarship. Academic problems would have nixed his Dibo’s entrance at Kentucky anyway, so he landed at Casper College, where he redshirted one year before taking a starring role the past two seasons.

Dibo is scheduled to receive his associates degree later this month, allowing him to spend the summer training in Morgantown. Three other Big 12 programs — Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas Tech — showed interest in Dibo this season, as did Clemson, Colorado State and Wyoming.

Barring another transfer from West Virginia’s current roster, or an academic failure on the part of WVU’s other five signees, Dibo’s commitment wraps up the 2013 recruiting class. That means no room for Martinsburg High forward Donte Grantham, who received an offer from WVU last month but is still considering the likes of Clemson, George Mason, James Madison or perhaps devoting a year to prep school.

After West Virginia signed four frontcourt players in November — 6-foot-8 Delvin Williams (Montverde, Fla.), 6-8 Elijah Macon (Columbus, Ohio), 6-10 Brandon Watkins (Decatur, Ga.) and 6-7 Nathan Adrian (Morgantown, W.Va.) — speculation shifted to Bob Huggins bringing in at least one guard during the spring signing period. Instead, WVU settled on two more forwards with jump-shooting range, signing 6-foot-9 junior college forward Jonathan Holton (Miami, Fla.) on Monday before adding Dibo.

    big tom, you are a very bitter person. I usually don't submit comments, but everytime I read posts from you it is always negative. Don't you ever have anything good to say about your fellow men? BE NICE

    Did any of you guys (and gals) listen to statewide sports line last night. They interviewed a guy from something like jucorecruiting.com. He said these last two signings were perfect for WVU and that these kids would contribute immediately. He said they were flying under the radar and Huggs got them before any of the big time schools knew they were available. He also said 2 more weeks and they would have had offers from a lot of big time programs. Sounded to me like Huggs did real good. Time will tell.

    • John

      There's a link to the interview on this page on the right hand side.

    I'm thoroughly convinced that "tw eagle", "big tom" and "WILLIAM" are actually the same person obsessively posting from somewhere in his mother's basement, and suffering from schizophrenic delusions. My guess is that he has never actually played a sport in his life, and he's eternally embittered by the beatings he used to suffer at the hands of the jocks who took pleasure in punking his snarky little butt on a daily basis.
    2 words ... "Seek therapy".

  • Low Rider

    Just for clarification, Huggins is the 15th highest paid D1 coach, making less than heavyweights like Buzz Williams, Matt Painter and yes...John Beilein.

    I am not suggesting in any way that Huggins is underpaid, but for those who think he is grossly overpaid, this is the cost of doing business at the major college level.

    As for his recruiting this year, I get a feeling of desperation. This latest signing I understand, but I still don't get signing the kid out of Florida that was kicked out of URI.

  • Allan

    I for one don't mind WILLIAM AND tweagle view points....they bring out the best in us all. Odd though, tweagle comments in caps and her sign on name in lower case..interesting. As for Grantham, maybe he'll be there next year if he decides on prep school. Looks like we will be signing on another foreign player..hope he turns out better than the previous experiment.

  • Don

    Question? Are Big Tom and William actually Marshall grads?

  • Shawn

    I really wish they would disable all comments for these articles. After reading it, the comment section is like seeing a buttcrack hanging out of a pair of pants. It doesn't matter whos crack it is, your eyes always drift to catch a peek.
