  • Ithiel Horton, a 6-foot-2 Class of 2018 guard, will transfer to Roselle Catholic with the closing of St. Anthony’s this spring, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    “Yes sir,” the Union, N.J., native said by text, adding that he made the move because of a “national schedule, maximum exposure and the chance to play under a great staff that will be with you for the rest of your life.”

    Under head coach Dave Boff, Roselle Catholic has won two New Jersey Tournament of Championships titles in the last five years (2013 and ’15) and produced a slew of Division 1 products, including Isaiah Briscoe (Kentucky), Tyler Roberson (Syracuse) and Chris Silva (South Carolina).

    Kentucky “none-and-done” Hamidou Diallo had several NBA workouts this week, a league source told ZAGSBLOG.

    The 6-foot-6 Diallo worked out for the Chicago Bulls on Monday and the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday ahead of Thursday’s scheduled workout with the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets on Thursday are also slated to work out Villanova’s Josh Hart and Oregon’s Tyler Dorsey.

    Diallo also worked out for the Boston Celtics before the NBA Combine, the source said. The Celtics pick at No. 1 and also have three second-round picks.

    The Bulls pick at No. 16, the Bucks at 17 and the Nets have two picks in the 20s, No. 22 and 27.

    Diallo, who had a 44 1/2-inch vertical leap at last week’s NBA Draft Combine but did not play 5-on-5, is currently projected at No. 35 by DraftExpress.com.

    “I don’t think he helped or hurt himself,” DraftExpress.com analyst Jonathan Givony told the Herald-Leader. “There really wasn’t much to go on. So I don’t think it really affected anything either way.
