    In span of hours, Oakland lands, loses prized 7-footer; plus, nonconference schedules

    In the span of just a few days this month, 7-foot basketball prodigy Mustapha “Momo” Cisse committed to Oakland University, departed Hillcrest Prep in Arizona for Putnam Science Academy in Connecticut, and decommitted from the Golden Grizzlies.

    For 48 hours, the Oakland men’s basketball fan base was celebrating a stunning “get,” a big man who had offers from a whole bunch of big-time Power Five programs, including Arizona State, Georgia, Mississippi State, Texas Tech and Cal. He was to be a part of Oakland’s 2022 class.

    And then, poof! He was gone.

    Within hours of Cisse’s stunning announcement that he was heading to Oakland over the Power Fives — and without even taking a trip to campus — it all fell apart for the Golden Grizzlies.

    It’s unclear exactly what happened, but coaches for Cisse, a native of Senegal who played in France before heading to prep school in Arizona, were admittedly swarmed with phone calls from big-time college basketball coaches after his commitment to Oakland, a mid-major.
