Georges Niang - 6'6 PF - Tilton School

Class of 2012
Hometown: Methuen, MA
Twitter: @GeorgesNiang20
Ranking: ESPN #82
Committed: Iowa State

July 2011 - Reminds of a Danya Abrams with more athleticism. Georges Niang is an undersized work-horse power-forward who consistently outworks and outplays his opponents...Model of consistency who fills up the stat sheet and serves as a nice compliment down low to Nerlens Noel and vice-versa.  Niang absolutely sizzled for BABC during their Peach Jam Chip Run, shooting a ridiculous 75% from the floor for the Event.  Iowa St. got a steal.  The biggest incoming Cyclone Recruit since Marcus Fizer.  (Watch out for Niang's developing perimeter skills.)

September 2011 - The Danya Abrams comparison no longer fits.  Along with his rapidly emerging perimeter skills, Niang has thinned out to the point where calling him a developing combo forward seems appropriate.  With his new frame, Niang has the potential to be able to shoot the 3-ball like Evan Smotryc at Michigan.  Stay tuned.
