16 of the 30 first round picks in this year's NBA Draft were ranked as five-stars in high school, including No. 6 overall pick Onyeka Okongwu. @Cassidy_Rob breaks down the rankings and looks back on the recruitments of the entire first round:
When LaMelo Ball and Onyeka Okongwu were chosen in the 2020 NBA draft, Chino Hills High became the first to have three former teammates taken among lottery picks.
LaMelo Ball and Onyeka Okongwu, two former Chino Hills High School teammates, were selected in the top six of the NBA Draft Wednesday night. Chino Hills is now the first high school ever to have 3 former teammates drafted as NBA lottery picks.
Two NBA sources: Onyeka Okongwu has a foot injury that could cost him training camp and maybe some of the regular season. Could impact where he's chosen in tonight's NBA draft (but not a lot).
