I went to Aiken from 98-02, we played Moeller in hoop my junior year when Matt was still on the team, he was a beast in the city, I remember then Cornette brothers from St. X the oldest brother went to Butler, the middle one went to Xavier, they had another brother, he was a freshman when i graduated. I had a buddy named Eric Thatcher i played basketball with when i was in elementary, he ended up playing football at Moeller, and he went and played at Pitt in college, I heard he is a scout for Tampa Bay Bucs when he graduated from Pitt
in the QCC we had West Hi with Danny Horance (Miami U), Darryl Peterson (Akron), Steve Banks, lil Steve Horton, dude had handles out this world, Withrow Brandon Hunter (Ohio U, then got drafted to the Celtics), tall Pierre Darden (he went to some small NAIA School), Woodward had this one kid from San Diego named Keomi Watson, he was like 5-4 but he could dunk, he had a tip in dunk at a And 1 game at Woodward in 2002 or 2003
Yessir. I graduated from St. X in 2001. Actually the middle Cornette, Jordan, went to Notre Dame, not Xavier. Finished as the 2nd all time leading shot blocker there. I played AAU ball for Friars with Daryl, Danny and Malcolm Andrews from West High. Malcolm played D-1 as well at Wright State. I used to go to Withrow open gyms and I'll never forget this time that Brandon Hunter dunked on Pierre off the backboard T-Mac style. s**t was nasty.
QCC also had Janerio Spurlock from your school. He was a beast. And Paul McMillan. Chris Washington and Jonny Hollingsworth (Akron) were also beasts for Withrow.
Also Keith Jackson from Purcell was real good too. He played for Xavier. I remember Thatcher too. Didnt know he played at Pitt tho. Richard Hall from Wyoming was the best high school back I ever saw along with Brandon Miree from Winton Woods. Man those were the days.
