Jesuit High School is represented at the NBA draft combine.
It's just not by a player who competed for the Marauders.
Vanderbilt center Festus Ezeli arrived at Jesuit in November 2004, 6-foot-6, admittedly uncoordinated and 14 years old when his family came to Sacramento from Nigeria.
Ezeli tried out for the basketball team and was cut. Not that it mattered.
Having already graduated from high school in Nigeria, Ezeli was ineligible to play.
"It was a lose-lose situation," Ezeli said. "I didn't make the team, I couldn't play, and I was not eligible."
Ezeli ended up at Yuba College at 16, taking a basketball class among his courses. He was discovered by college scouts playing for the Sacramento Pharoahs AAU team and showed enough ability to land a scholarship.
Now Ezeli has the chance to play in the NBA after four seasons with the Commodores.
Not bad for someone who hasn't played basketball for 10 years of his life.
"It's a dream," Ezeli said. "I didn't really expect it."
Ezeli arrived at Vanderbilt in 2007 and redshirted. At 6-11 and 255 pounds, Ezeli prides himself on his defense. He averaged 10.1 points and 5.9 rebounds as a senior.
Workouts starting North Carolina power forward John Henson said he will be in Sacramento on Monday for a workout with the Kings.
Henson is one of the top-rated players at his position who won't shy away from competition.
A lot of top prospects are directed by their agents to have individual workouts, but that's not Henson's plan.
"I feel like I'm confident enough to work out against guys," Henson said. "And I think guys work out against me. Our games are so different (that) we contrast. It's good for the teams to see what they want."
Henson (6-11, 220) averaged 13.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.9 blocked shots as a junior.
