Hamidou Diallo, ranked as the No. 11 player in the Class of 2017 by ESPN, has narrowed his choices to six schools, he announced Tuesday on Twitter.

The Final 6 are Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Connecticut.

The 6-5 Diallo, the top-ranked shooting guard, is in a post-grad year for Putnam Science Academy (Conn.) and is originally from Queens, N.Y.

Diallo is coming off a dominating summer with the NY Rens on the Nike EYBL circuit, averaging 19.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

He caused a stir in late September when he told Scout.com that he was eligible for the NBA Draft this June because he had already graduated high school and was considering it. He later said his priority is going to college.
