Calipari offers 2017 SG Hamidou Diallo

As expected, John Calipari extended a scholarship offer to 2017 five-star shooting guard Hamidou Diallo during his in-home visit this afternoon, bringing the number of offers out in the 2017 class to 14. Diallo — no relation to Cheick Diallo — tweeted the news a few minutes ago:

Diallo turned heads at the EYBL stop in Brooklyn this past weekend, with Evan Daniels going as far to say that he and Mohamed Bamba — whom Calipari also visits today — were the two most impressive players in the entire event. Yesterday, the 6’4″ shooting guard got an offer from Duke. It’s early, but Kentucky is currently considered the favorite in his 247 Sports Crystal Ball, with 78% of the predictions to UConn’s 22%.

To keep track, here’s a list of the players in the 2017 class with Kentucky offers so far:

  • PG: Trae Young
  • SG: Gary Trent, Jr., Hamidou Diallo
  • SF: Michael Porter, Jarred Vanderbilt, John Petty, Kevin Knox
  • PF: DeAndre Ayton, Mohamed Bamba, Wendell Carter, PJ Washington, Xavier Tillman
  • C: Nick Richards, Zach Brown

And some footage of Diallo from over the weekend:

    Shouldn’t Diallo be listed under SG instead of SF?

    Did I see Diallo with a bank 3? Perfect Cal guard! 😉

    If Jarred Vanderbilt comes, Tom Leach is going to have his work cut out for him. “Vanderbilt rebounds over Vanderbilt, dribbles through Vanderbilt defenders, and Vanderbilt dunks on Vanderbilt!”
