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.
