One thing that you can say about Keith Dambrot is that can you never say he’s done recruiting and he always keeps you on your toes.
Just when you thought they were done with their Class of 2020, the Duquesne Dukes add another player to their roster as Mounir Hima announced that he’s committed to Duquesne on Friday. Because they’re already two players over the scholarship limit of 13, it’s not certain if he’s joining them as a scholarship player in 2020.
Hima (6-foot-11, 205 pounds) attends St. Benedict’s Prep School in New Jersey and also received offers from schools such as Rhode Island, UMass, VCU, St. Bonaventure, Iona and Robert Morris.
Buzz Williams and Texas A&M offered him to come down for a visit but that got cancelled because of COVID-19. PSN has also been told that Hima is someone that Tim O’Toole and the Pitt Panthers were scouting, but never offered. Mounir is close with another member of Duquesne’s Class of 2020 and New Jersey native three-star forward Toby Okani.

Hima has been described as a player with a great motor, is a great shot blocker, despite his size is able to run the floor well and has good hands and a soft around near the basketball. PSN has been told that if not for the knee injury he suffered two years ago, he would’ve been a high-major recruit.
Hima becomes the sixth member of Duquesne’s Class of 2020 and if he’s coming on scholarship, Dambrot’s team currently has 16 players, which means that they’ll have some departures unless a current member or two isn’t currently on scholarship.
Anytime you can add a 6-foot-11 prospect it’s intriguing, so this looks like a good late add by the Dukes.
