Class of 2017 five-star recruit Hamidou Diallo, the No. 1 shooting guard in his class, can now say his stock as a recruit has skyrocketed. According to posts on his Twitter, he has offers in hand from both the Duke Blue Devils and Kentucky Wildcats.

Diallo, who currently stars at Connecticut’s Putnam Science Academy, also has offers from practically every major program in the country and could probably write his own college basketball ticket. Kentucky is the current favorite to land him, so it’s really just a matter of if he wants to play in coach John Calipari’s dribble-drive offense or Mike Krzyzewski’s traditional run-and-gun game, assuming Kentucky and Duke wind up being his top two.
But there’s plenty of time left for Diallo to make a decision, with schools like Louisville and Indiana also on the radar, so be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on his recruitment!
