    Ousmane Cisse. Entered the 01 NBA draft out of HS. Averaged 29 points, 16 rebounds and 12 blocked shots as a senior. Selected 47th, never played. Bounced around for a while, played USBL, NBDL, and now he's in Israel.

      Damn, man, Kevin Lyde was one of the best recruits we ever got :(

      Averaged 9 points and 8 rebounds, which wasn't great for a top recruit. Still had a decent career, but should've brought our recruiting to the top.

              Second best basketball game I ever went to was us upsetting Mike Jones and UMD. I actually sat behind his parents that game.

                How about legends like Lenny Cooke and Deangelo Collins??? Both are legendary high school players. Cooke has had a very unfortunate life as has Collins to an extent.

                    Rashaad Carruth was an absolute headcase. Guy had to transfer his freshman year, I think he ended up at Southern Mississippi or something.

                    Mike Mercer for Georgia was actually pretty good but screwed up off the court, got kicked off the team and I haven't heard about him since.

                          Sounds like a total beast in high school. Was the Carruth guy in here related to Rae?
