Ronald Steele

What ever happened to this guy? At one point he was more hyped up than Derrick Rose last year and now he's a far cry from the potential he once had. Any idea if he gets drafted this year?

I think he got injured last

I think he got injured last year or something like that because he stopped playing for Bama after a few games. Preseason Bama was supposed to challenge in the SEC with Steele and Gee and then they fell off after he left.

No way he gets drafted. It

No way he gets drafted. It is a shame, he was at one time the best point guard in college. Bad knees ruined his career. He just isn't the same player anymore. He still shoots good but he doesn't have the speed to defend or penetrate.

Yeah he was going to come

Yeah he was going to come out his after his sophomore season and he would of been a top 10 pick, but wanted to go back to school. Then he tore his ACL and was out for a year. Then the surgery didn't go according to plan, so he was always trying to come back. Like others have said he can still shoot but he doesn't have the lateral quickness that he possessed before. He is a great kid and has a good future, it just isnt in basketball

bad knees

He tore some ligaments in one of his knees and never got back to full strength. This year he quit the team half way during the season. Some say he didn't get along with the coach.

Alabama's coach sucked. He

Alabama's coach sucked. He never could get the most out of his talent. Bama had some great teams in the last decade or so but never could make a deep tourney run.

Steele

He is one of the posterchild's for why players should leave as soon as their stock is high. If I was certain that I was a first round pick, then I would be gone immediately. Injuries can change everything.

his knees

His knees killed him, he wouldve been great. but alabama has a guy that is a gifted athlete and may breakout next season, he goes by Senario Hillman.Potential draft pick next year if he develops his guard skills some more. He is the best leaper in college basketball
