“You won’t play college ball, Dre. Not even JuCo!”
That was my high school teammate, who was feeling himself at the time.

I saw this same guy many times through my college years. I was a player at Penn State Altoona and we would drive up to the main campus to play pickup every Friday. I’d see him on the sidelines.
He was a student at main campus. He never played a second of college ball.
