Look at all the hate on this post. I hope all future HS prospects and current players will come and take a look at this shite you "keyboard warriors" are posting.

Wow! That is crazy money. Good for him- but that really is insane. He makes more in one day than I do in a whole year.

Jesus Christ...all that $$$ for a guy who can't shoot worth a lick. If I was black and a foot taller, that could be me...

Why should he? Half of you are insulting him, while the other half say he was not a Tiger.

he only came here because his godfather was on staff and he left as soon as he could. And when he left, he tweeted out some "love" for the "gold and purple." I am not kidding about that. Pathetic.

I don’t care what anyone says, if you can choose between football and basketball and you choose football, you’re a fool.
