    Cheick Diallo

    Did missing all those games hurt his play? Or has he just not caught up to the game speed yet? I almost feel as if he has disappeared after making his debut.

    The high - profiled guys (McDonalds AA) in this Freshman class overall have been one of the weakest in years. (except B.Simmons, of course)

    Evans from Okla St is one of the best I've seen. Ingram is good too, but very skinny.

    I wasn't impressed with Diallo when I watched him in person. Unfortunately...I wasn't blown away by Skal Labissiere either.

    The Diallo evaluations were flawed all along. I love guys that play hard, but that can't be your only skill. Always felt Thomas Bryant was the better prospect on their AAC team because he not only played hard, but he had a ton more skill. Diallo was a one trick pony, and that trick isn't enough to to make an instant impact...

    I'd heard that he was struggling to comprehend the offensive and defensive philosophies at KU. Not sure why Bragg isn't playing more over there.
