No Sign Yet Of What Kentucky's Hamidou Diallo Is Going To Do

Nobody seems to know anything with less than two hours to go.

Hamidou Diallo is keeping everyone in the dark.

Kentucky's five-star freshman has yet to make his NBA Draft decision public with less than two hours to go until the underclassmen deadline. The former top recruit, who enrolled a year early at UK but didn't end up playing, declared for the NBA Draft without an agent. He can come back for his would-be freshman season, or stay in the draft and sign an agent.

Diallo was scheduled to work out for the Knicks earlier today, but reportedly pulled out of the workout, prompting some to think he's decided to return to school. Others say that could be because he's decided to stay in the draft and has gotten a first-round guarantee from another team.

As of 10:20 p.m. E.T. Wednesday night, nobody seems to know what he's going to do.

Big Blue Nation is freaking out a bit.

Diallo, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, impressed at the NBA Combine in Chicago, recording the highest vertical jump in the history of the event. He was ranked the No. 1 shooting guard in the 2017 recruiting class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

There are some who think he could be a mid to late first-round pick if he decides to stay in the draft, but he's never played in a college game. Returning to school could allow him to vault into the top 10 in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Updates to come.
