Hamidou Diallo Is Off To The Kentucky Wildcats… For Now

The tenth ranked high school basketball player in the nation, Hamidou Diallo, has committed to play his college basketball for the powerhouse Kentucky Wildcats. At 6’5 and 200 pounds Diallo is a force to be reckoned with on the basketball court. He played his high school ball with Putnam Science Academy in Putnam, Connecticut and had an incredible career there. He plays point guard and has gained fame for his tremendously devastating dunks and long reach.
Diallo may not actually see any time in the NCAA, however. He is draft eligible for the NBA as he has completed high school in New York and actually spent the last season at prep school in Connecticut. If he does make the leap to the NBA he should expect to spend some time in the developmental league before he ever sees any actually time on an NBA court – so it may make more sense for him to spend a year or two in the NCAA which could also help him propel his draft stock higher so long as he does not get seriously injured in college.
