Hamidou Diallo, one of the best that 2017 has to offer, has a new list of six schools in consideration.

Diallo announced his newest list on Tuesday, which included the Kentucky Wildcats to no surprise:

Joining UK in the Diallo recruiting hunt are the likes of UConn, Syracuse, Arizona, Indiana, and Kansas. The stock continues to rise for Diallo's talents, but there's a chance he may not pick any of these schools to play for.

In fact, he may not pick any college at all, as he’s stated that skipping college and going straight to the NBA is something he’s considering. That’s not kept John Calipari from continuing to recruit him, but it is making Cal more willing to keep his options open in terms of 2017 guards.

A five-star shooting guard out of out of Queens, Diallo is one of the highest rated recruits in the high school Class of 2017. The 6-5, 195-pound guard is ranked by 247 as their No. 9 overall prospect and top shooting guard.

The 247 Crystal Ball still has UK as the favorite with the last two predictions in favor of the Cats.
