Hamidou Diallo: “If Mohamed Bamba comes to Kentucky, it’s going to be really scary”


Hamidou Diallo has yet to make his decision about the draft, but given today’s performance, it’s looking like he could have good reason to stay in it. If so, you know what would make us all feel better? A commitment from Mohamed Bamba. Before Diallo enrolled at Kentucky, he was a member of the 2017 class, and is very close with Kentucky’s incoming freshmen. According to Kyle Tucker, Diallo received a good luck text today from UK’s 2017 class, which he referred to as a brotherhood. What would that class look like if they added Bamba?

Meanwhile, all is still quiet on the Bamba front. With the all-star circuit finally over, he’s back home and focusing on his decision. During the tournament, Diallo told Adam Zagoria that he’s been trying his hardest to get Bamba to come to Lexington.

“Definitely, we’re trying to get Mo down here,” Diallo said. “He’s been a head case but we’re still working on that. Hopefully it happens.”

Even Hami knows we gotta get Bamba.

      Yeah because all young players decide where they’re gonna play right away. You should probably work on being a better fisherman.

    Hope we get Mo, but if Diallo leaves our backcourt will certainly be scary, and not in a good way.

    Well if he doesn’t come to UK and goes to texas, he’s a non factor. We gettin #9 with or without him.
