Mustangs At A Glance

Most of the buzz around the Mustangs centers on the freakishly athletic 6-6 SR guard Hamidou Diallo (already Putnam Science’s all-time leading scorer), a New York City product who averaged 18.6 points during the Nike EYBL regular season and upped that to 21.5 at the Peach Jam. But head coach Tom Espinosa’s squad from the always-powerful New England prep league (NEPSAC) will be loaded with D1 talents, including smooth 6-4 JR combo guard Eric Ayala, who can score points in bunches, and a trio of promising guards in 6-1 SR Jaheam Cornwall, 6-1 SOPH Chris Wright and 6-1 SOPH Tanahj Pettway.
