More on Frank Martin’s latest acquisition Sept. 30, 2016 Ibrahim Doumbia picked up basketball in the eighth grade, one year before he moved from Mali to America. It was the beautiful game that was his first love. “I used to play soccer before, so then I started growing, then they told me you better stop playing soccer and go try basketball,” Doumbia said. “I didn’t like it at the beginning, but then my uncle, who was one of my neighbors, he used to push me all the time. Then I started, little by little I started liking it. Now I like it.” Now, a 6-foot-8, 190-pound senior at Miami Country Day in Florida, Doumbia is committed to South Carolina. The 3-star power forward pulled the trigger on Thursday over offers from Florida, Tennessee and Baylor. The International Business program caught his eye during this month’s official visit. “That’s what I want to do. They have one of the top International Business programs in the country,” Doumbia said. “I like the coach a lot, too. They have been recruiting me since I was in the ninth grade. I like their style and I like how they work hard in everything.” He added, “I just think it’s a great school for me.”
