The Kentucky Wildcats finally have Hamidou Diallo practicing with the team.
Diallo committed to the Cats last weekend before enrolling at UK for the second semester, and he’s now planning to practice while redshirting this season. Diallo is eligible to play for UK if need be, and it looks like he has his new roster number as well:

According to the official team roster, Diallo 6-5, 190 pounds and will wear No. 4. Former Cats to wear that number include Charles Matthews, Jon Hood, Rajon Rondo, Gerald Fitch, and the great Kyle Macy.
We should get to see Diallo go through pregame warmups as well Saturday when UK plays host to Auburn on ESPN.
