Reports that Hamidou Diallo Will Enroll 2nd Semester in College “a foregone conclusion”

Hamidou Diallo is looking to enroll this coming semester according to Jerry Meyer of 247 Sports.

Jerry indicates the following in his most recent report:

“It is practically a foregone conclusion that Diallo will enroll in a college at for the second semester. He wants to play right away and not sit out, but he has not been cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse yet and it is not a certainty that he will be cleared in time. So there is the possibility of training with a team during the second half of the season but not participating in games. His desire, however, is to play right away.”

Here is where ESPN has him ranked:

So is it UCONN or Kentucky?

Most are now saying Diallo has switched from an almost guarantee UCONN get to a Kentucky lock. The announcement should come soon with the NCAA having to work quickly to get him eligible for this coming semester.

Feast your eyes on a mixtape featuring Hamidou Diallo below and follow this link to the documentary we posted here.
