Hamidou Diallo now the last undecided prospect left

And now there is one.

With only four hours and 16 minutes to go until the deadline, Hamidou Diallo is the last remaining prospect still weighing his options. All of the others on the fence have announced their intentions — Swanigan to leave, Mykhailiuk to return to Kansas — and Diallo is the lone player yet to decide.

For what it’s worth, a New York area high school coach just tweeted Diallo is going back to school:

Here he is with Diallo earlier today, so it seems legit:

We just need Diallo to make if official.

    Just don’t think he’s much of a trusted coach if he’s tweeting out stuff and not letting hami announce

    If he does come back, I’ll give the guy credit though for trying his butt off not to.
    I think it will be interesting to see his statement to the BBN ( aka rest of world) on his decision.
    Because quite honestly, I feel he will be disappointed to be back in Lexington.
    Que the team chemistry concerns.

      No… just no. He doesn’t owe anyone anything to anyone. Just shut up! How old are you?… just curious

      Catlogic15 didn’t say anything controversial, or in anyway begrudge Hami’s handling of the situation. Stop looking for people to get all high and mighty on.

      Wait, you’re saying an 18 year old kid would be disappointed to be in college and not making millions to play a sport?! This is earth shattering news

      Every player should be trying their butt off not to return. It’s their dream and goal to make it to the NBA. They should be doing all they can to make it a reality in the best situation for them long-term.

      Quite frankly, every player that has a legitimate shot should be taking every meeting and workout they can to make the most educated decision for themselves.

      I think Diallo has gone through the process exactly as he should. Now I just hope I get to see him posterize people in UK blue.

    I think all these games he’s played, he has put some expectations on himself that he couldn’t possibly live up to. Just sayin don’t expect much with his combine measurements and count even get a top 30 pick. Just says he’s not that great at shooting

    Freakish athlete but he needs a year of college! He will sit the bench or be in the “D” league until he gains strength and a strong outside shot. No doubt he will be a great player in the NBA, just needs time to develop and UK is the place!

    I don’t like that he announced at the last hour he was putting his name in the draft and announcing at the last hour whether he is taking it out. Indicates he’s a procrastinator, not someone who knows and pursues what they want from the getgo

      What are you talking about? Both decisions were huge life decisions, god forbid he take his time and make sure he makes the right one. You critics absolutely kill me.

      “Taking his time” is waiting until the last day and gathering all the info. Do you really think he needs these last hours to make the “right” decision? Cmon now. I’m not begrudging him going through the process or getting out of town to go to the NBA. Just saying I’d prefer a kid that announces at a reasonable hour after considering everything. Not a kid who consistently waits until the last moment to announce whatever decision they make. Doesn’t mean I don’t like him, that he’s not a great person, or that I won’t root for him at UK or the NBA. Just a comment expressing my opinion on the type of personality I prefer. You need to get off your high horse cuz you didn’t win the Derby

    I get why sports media insiders do it, but why do you, a coach, take photos of yourself with the young 18 year old player and then tweet out (allegedly) inside information before the player does? What’s wrong with YOU?

    8:27 pm May 24, 2017 Permalink

    To me it indicates he’s a 17 year old who’s not sure what direction he wants to go at this point in his life. Been there. Done that. Give a kid break knuckleheads

    He’s had plenty of time to make this “huge life decision.” He’s a self-centered jerk. It’s all about him and the spotlight.

    True Wildcat?

    Might be helpful to stop sleeping under a rock. None of these kids come here because they are “True Wildcats”. They come here for Calipari. Period.

      And therein lies the issue. Why don’t we just quit playing college basketball games and just get an NBA franchise. Problem solved and u know it



  14. TBW3011

    Guessing he’s coming back and Cal wants him to wait to make bigger headlines. If he waits until the last second and leaves it’s pretty poor form really. He has to know by now.
