From Ed Macauley and Jo Jo White to more current players like David Lee, Larry Hughes and Bradley Beal, St. Louis has a long history of producing some elite basketball talent.

Barnett led the Cadets in scoring each of the last two years, averaging 17 points per game as a junior. He is also ranked by ESPN as the 86th best player in his whole class. Yet he believes with more work, there’s no telling how high he can go.
