This is interesting...goes to show for all you lets recruit young...8th grade was my favorite year and where I reached most my acclaim in hoops unfortunately...no I'm not on the list but played AAU ball with & or against at least 5 of the 7 guys for my year in the state. Most of these guys went to go on to reach some sort of college d1 ball sucess...others great HS hoopers...some NBA..some faded off right after the 8th grade & didn't even have much HS sucess at all! (No names!) Haha! But a very interesting article and list...feel free to ad suggestions to it in comments if you feel someone should have been on it...My year according to this article (1997 ie: class of 2002)...D'angelo Collins was the headliner my year...saw him in an AAU tourny at compton JC playing for Socal All Stars..guess hes had a good career in Brazil...but still cant believe when he went HS to pro that his name wasn't called and he didn't shake Daniel Stern's hand...goes to show..kids reading this...& parents alike...HAVE A BACKUP PLAN TO FALL BACK ON IF THE LOTTO THAT IS THE NBA (or even playing pro's overseas) ISNT IN THE CARDS!!
