What Happened to Alpha N'Diaye?

Last season for Sacramento State, Alpha N'Diaye was (in fairly limited minutes), one of the best rebounders in the Big Sky, posting an OR% of 12.4% and a DR% of 24.4%, excellent numbers that would probably make him the best rebounder in the Big Sky heading into the season if he could extrapolate out in more minutes.

But, Sacramento State released its roster, and N'Diaye is not on it.

I haven't been able to find any information on it, so that is why I am writing - Does anyone know why he is not on the roster? I know he spent 2 years at a junior college and redshirted a year, so my hunch is that he simply graduated and moved onto other opportunities. But that is simply a hunch, and I am curious to find out if that is true.

I have sent an email to Coach Katz and sent Alpha a Facebook message (some great sleuthing there, to be sure), so hopefully we will find something out.

UPDATE: I have been able to confirm that N'Diaye has been declared ineligible this season and will not play for Sacramento State. Big loss for them, as he would have been a nice piece of the frontcourt during his senior season. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for him to get focused.
