Mid-Day Rumble: Moustapha Diagne will not attend Syracuse, Dezmyn Trent dismissed from Boise State

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Today in the Mid-Day Rumble, a top 100 recruit won't be headed to Syracuse, Dezmyn Trent has been dismissed from Boise State and Jamal Murray will not play in the Olympic Qualifying tournament.

Moustapha Diagne, who is ranked 58 out of ESPN's top 100 for the class of 2015, will not be attending Syracuse in the fall and will instead enroll at a two-year college.

That brings the Orange down to a total of 10 scholarships for the 2015-16 season, including Paschal Chukwu, who is unable to play this season due to NCAA transfer rules.

In Idaho, Boise State guard Dezmyn Trent was arrested for a drive-by shooting and has been immediately dismissed from the program and University.

The rising sophomore from Tacoma, WA averaged just 3.5 points and 2.2 rebounds per game last season but was projected to play a much bigger role in the Broncos backcourt this year after leading scorer Derrick Marks graduated.

Kentucky freshman Jamal Murray lit up the Pam-American Games earlier this month and Canadian national team head coach Jay Triano was very impressed with the youngster's ability to take over the game. Triano desperately wanted the lead guard to be a member of the team as they participate in the Olympic Qualifying tournament from August 31 to September 12.

Unfortunately, coach John Calipari and the Wildcats are unable to let him play due to the Kentucky fall school semester, which begins August 26.

Murray will have an immediate impact at Kentucky alongside Isaiah Briscoe and Tyler Ulis in what should be one of the better backcourts in the country.

In more Kentucky news, physical Australian big man Isaac Humphries enrolled in the school and will be eligible for the 2015 season. Humphries is not as skilled as Karl-Anthony Towns, Skal Labissiere or Marcus Lee but think of the seven-footer as a better post presence than Dakari Johnson.

Humphries, who is only 17 years old, will likely come off the bench and provide rebounding, toughness and effective passing.

Iowa State has suspended freshman point guard Nick Noskowiak indefinitely after the talented ball handler had multiple run-ins with the law.

Noskowiak was supposed to backup Monte Morris but with a felony offense to his name, his future is uncertain with the Cyclones.

The SEC had a tremendous week with Terrance Ferguson committing to Alabama, Eli Wright announcing his decision to head to Mississippi State and Mustapha Heron joining the Auburn Tigers but Wednesday did not bring the best news for the Crimson Tide

Four-star 2015 small forward Devin Eubanks won't be attending the school as he had an issue with his high school transcript. The top 100 player will now have to reassess his options to be eligible to play college basketball.
