Potential “One and Dones”?

In a continuing tradition let’s explore the latest high school basketball scene for the next group of young greats.  After the NBA rule change, which made it mandatory for high school basketball players to complete at least one year of college before entering the NBA Draft, high school basketball fans have made it a habit to glance over the upcoming talent for potential “one and dones.” The most recent notable names in this category have been Andrew Wiggins of Kansas and Jabari Parker of Duke.  Others who followed behind them include James Young of Kentucky and UCLA’s Zach Lavine.  Aside from the debate of rather an athlete should leave early or stay his entire 4 years is an ongoing argument, and will be for years to come, but it’s still fun to explore the scene and predict who may indeed be poised for that “one and done” status.  You be the judge.
