Top high school power forward Cheick Diallo is taking his first visit to UK this weekend, and he tweeted a picture of himself from the Wildcats’ locker room in Rupp Arena on Sunday morning.
Diallo — a 6-foot-9 prospect from Long Island — is one of the best post players in the class of 2015. 247Sports now ranks him as the No. 3 overall recruit in the class, and he’s No. 5 in both the Rivals.com and Scout.com rankings.
Charles Matthews — UK’s lone commitment for 2015 — said earlier this month that he’s actively recruiting Diallo to join him at Kentucky.
