Former Illinois Forward/Center, Ibby Djimde, Transfers to Coastal Carolina


Djimde is a 6' 8", 245 lbs. post presence who declared at the end of the 2012-2013 season that he would be leaving the Univeristy of Illinois. He has decided to transfer to Coastal Carolina.


Although he did not receive significant playing time during his two years for the Fighting Illini, he was a useful asset off the bench. Djimde instantly provides the Chanticleers with a big man down low who can intimidate opponents due to his sheer size and athleticism. Former Illini forward, Sam McLaurin, transferred from Coastal Carolina to Illinois to play out his final year of college in 2012. When looking for schools, Djimde turned to McLaurin's advice and liked what he had to say about the university near Myrtle Beach, SC.
