Kobe- although he never signed a letter of intent, I always heard he wouldve signed with Duke

T-Mac- was going to Kentucky

Amar'e- I think he actually verbally committed to Memphis and Coach Cal

Al Harrington- he didnt commit but it was almost certain he was coming to NC State (I am from Raleigh)

Rashard Lewis- gave a verbal to Houston

Darius Miles- St. John's

Kobe never actually made a "commitment" to any any college, i just rememeber reading an article about Kobe before the draft saying that he was considering Lasalle because his dad went there and it was close to home. I believe it was in Slam

Kevin Garnett

Michigan

Darius to St. John's was legit, and Rashard to Houston seems so as well. T-Mac seemed like a lock to play for Pitino at Kentucky, before he left for the NBA.

Robert Swift was going to go to USC:

I think I remember Al Harrington as a Seton Hall guy:

http://articles.nydailynews.com/1998-05-11/sports/18060991_1_tommy-amake...

Kobe to Duke was what I heard as well

Dorrell Wright to DePaul

Kendrick Perkins to Memphis

Jonathan Bender to Mississippi State

Travis Outlaw to Mississippi State

Monta Ellis to Mississippi State

Ndubi Ebi to Arizona

Andrew Bynum to UCONN

Andray Blatche to Syracuse

Think these were all legit. I made a thread about where guys may have gone, but I remember all of these visibly:

mikev

Harrington never committed so we will never know, but the word here in Raleigh before the entry deadline was that he had narrowed his decision down to 2 choices....NCSU or NBA. Seton Hall was high on his list but NCSU was the frontrunner. I dont remember Seton Hall's team at that time...maybe Tommy Amaker was still HC? I do remember NCSU, and Les Robinson was HC and they were the worst team in the ACC. Robinson and State were really banking on Harrington to go there as he couldve turned the program around if for only 1 year.

I know most people expected

I know most people expected Kevin Garnett to go to Michigan, but I saw somewhere that said that he said that he would've surprised everyone and gone to Maryland. I'm not sure if it's true though, and I forgot where I saw it.

Kobe has stated himself that he had intended on Duke had he not gone to the pro's. Otherwise he was heading to Italy. Not sure where LaSalle came from?

Right, Topeka, that's if I hadn't gone pro straight out of high school. Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Drummond should pick a random Div 3 school to commit to.

Drummond should go to Cal Tech, virtually go from the worst team in d3 to possibly the best.

Qyntel Woods signed with Memphis too, but I think he might have been a juco guy.

KG might have said St. Johns, but he had no chance of going to college. He had too low of SAT scores so he declred. COINCIDENTALLY though a week after either the draft or declaring for the draft(can't remember which one).

Cost should always be an issue in college selection, though a fair number of students know about this. A recent survey of recent freshmen by researchers from UCLA found it is becoming a very big factor in their selection of alma mater. Resource for this article: approved no matter what paydayloan
