Cheick Diallo commits to Kansas

By

Our Saviour New American (Centereach, N.Y.) forward Cheick Diallo, one of the last two top 10 recruits who was still uncommitted, ended his recruitment via Twitter Tuesday picking Kansas over Kentucky.

Diallo, who is ranked No. 7 overall in the ESPN 100, was named MVP of the McDonald’s All American game and co-MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic earlier his month.

“I felt like Kansas was the best place for me,” Diallo told ESPN recruiting director Paul Biancardi. “I can earn playing time right away. I played against Joel Embiid in high school and watched his development. I need to work on a lot of things and feel coach (Bill) Self can help my game. On my visit, the campus was great and the people were nice. I could see myself there.”

Diallo averaged 18 points and 11 rebounds a game this season.
