We had no idea.
The country might not have had an idea.
We know now.
Folks, Dorell Wright, a current senior at Lawndale (CA) Leuzinger High, is big time. He's not going to be playing college basketball next season, but here's to hoping one day he can lace them up.
Wright is not going to qualify and that's a shame. He's athletic, talented, can rebound and score and finishes with flair. The guy has an offensive package and by all accounts he's just scratching the surface.
We saw him play once, last Saturday against the South Florida Heat, and that's all it took to figure out how good he was. (see accompanying shot chart).
Wright told us that he's searching for a prep school next season to do a post-graduate year. Last Saturday, Florida's Billy Donovan took a gander at him and we think the UF coach fell in love.
