Enes Kanter is a 6'11" power forward/center from Turkey who was born in Switzerland. He will turn 19 years old this May.
As most people who follow college basketball know by now, Kanter will never play college hoops.
The Turkish big man received over $33,000 from his club team during the 2008-09 season. Kanter turned down millions more from European pro teams so that he could play college ball here in the States.
On January 7, 2011, Kanter was ruled ineligible to play.
Don't weep for Kanter, though. He will likely be a lottery pick in the upcoming draft (if there is not a lockout, of course).
Here is all you need to know about the Kanter situation.
