NOVEMBER 2015 ■ 141 ■ BASKETBALL RECRUITING to the movies or walk around the city. I'll do that sometimes." Diallo was one of the standouts at the NBPA Camp July 17‑20 at the University of Virginia, and then the Under Armour Camp July 7‑10 in Charlotte, N.C. He played with the NYC Jayhawks on the Un‑ der Armour circuit, and it became clear by the end of July he'd likely have the choice of nearly any college. Diallo also played in the Under Armour Elite 24 outdoor all‑star game in Brooklyn, N.Y., which was televised on ESPNU. NC State, Indiana and Louisville all of‑ fered June 15, and Maryland, Villanova, Florida, Alabama, SMU, Kansas, Syracuse and Boston College were the next wave of offers. Kentucky is showing interest. Diallo is greedy when it comes to offers and wants as many as he can get. "NC State has been staying in contact with me," Diallo said. "We'll see how that goes. I know they've come to see me. I don't worry about being away from home. "It's going to be all about coaches that keep it real with me. I want coaches that don't tell me fibs and just really want me. I want a place that makes me feel like home." Diallo had his own to‑do list for improv‑ ing his game this fall. "I want to improve my strength and ball handling," said Diallo, who has dabbled with playing point guard. "I want to be more consistent. I've gained about 12 pounds over the last year. I hope to get to about 190‑195." ■ 106 V East Railroad Ave. - Gibsonville, NC 27249 336-449-9627 • email: WWW.HARDWOODSTORE.COM Diallo, who is listed as a five-star talent and the No. 12 overall prospect nationally in the class of 2017 by, made the move from Queens, N.Y., to Putnam (Conn.)
