Derrick Rose and Anthony Davis are just two of the 10 outstanding players on a list that highlights former Chicagoland prep basketball stars that graduated high school in 2005 or later.
Two players on this list were no. 1 picks overall in the NBA Draft. One was the no. 2 pick. Two others were drafted, and all five of them left college early.
Of the remaining five players, three of them became their college's all-time leading scorer. The other two were vital parts of their teams winning National Championships.
Everyone on this list is on this list for a reason and there were plenty of players that could have made it as well, had there not been all this talent already.
Everyone highlighted here is either playing in the NBA, NBA D-League, or in Europe. The common bond that they do share though is that they all started these illustrious careers in the same place: Chicago.
