In the latest edition of his The Sidelines podcast, which is very good by the way, Evan Daniels shared a little bit about what he expects on the Hamidou Diallo front this week as a decision looms.
Daniels said he thinks Kentucky is in the best position to land Diallo and bring the five-star guard to campus immediately; however, he does not expect Diallo to suit up this season:
Hamidou Diallo is strongly considering enrolling at a school here at the break and heading there. I do not believe that Hamidou Diallo will play in the second semester, but I do believe he will head to a college and get started and get working out with the team and hitting the weight room and just attempting to get better.
The options right now are Kentucky, Connecticut and Arizona. He has visited Connecticut and Kentucky; unsure if he is going to visit Arizona. If I were going to take a stab, take a guess at where I think Hamidou Diallo is going to end up, I would guess Kentucky. And like I said, I don’t expect him to play in the second semester. But I do think there is a decision coming from Hamidou Diallo very soon.
Listen to Evan’s podcast around the 49:40 mark for the Diallo talk and then sit back and wait for the news to break later today or tomorrow.
