Hamidou Diallo was poised to make history regardless of his decision to stay in the NBA Draft or not considering he didn’t even play a single minute of college basketball and didn’t go overseas after high school either. He joined Kentucky in the spring as an early enrollee for 2017 and decided to go pro despite not playing at all and now he’s decided on whether he will stay in the draft or go back to school to improve his stock.
The 6’5″, 190-pound Diallo had reportedly been “50-50” on whether he would stay in the draft and now we all have his answer. With him staying for a full year in school the Wildcats’ 2017-18 season certainly became more interesting. With Diallo staying, Kentucky can expect to be a much better team with the super athletic Diallo returning.
