Diallo picks Kansasover UK, St. John's
Five-star basketball recruit Cheick Diallo announced his commitment to Kansas on Tuesday afternoon.
Diallo — a 6-foot-9 power forward — was MVP of both the McDonald's All-American Game and Jordan Brand Classic this month. Kansas beat out Kentucky and St. John's for his commitment.
The native of Mali — currently attending a high school in Centereach, N.Y. — is considered a top-10 prospect in the class of 2015. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 4 overall player in the class.
Diallo's commitment leaves five-star small forward Jaylen Brown as the only uncommitted McDonald's All-American in the class. Brown has narrowed his list to UK, Michigan, Kansas, North Carolina and California. There is no timetable for his decision.
