The Big Lead has ranked the nations best college basketball players for the 2017-18 season and two Kentucky Wildcats made the list. Freshman Hamidou Diallo and Kevin Knox are both ranked in the Top 10.
Diallo comes in ranked as the nations 3rd best player and Knox is ranked as the nations 8th best player.
Check out what The Big Lead had to say about Diallo and Knox.
8. Kevin Knox, Freshman F, Kentucky: A 6-foot-9, 205 pound wing who can play shooting guard, but likely will play all over for the Wildcats.
3. Hamidou Diallo, Freshman G, Kentucky: Dabbled with the idea of going to the NBA, but didn’t get a high enough guarantee in the draft to enter, so the explosive guard will have to settle for highlight reel dunks in Lexington for a year.
