Farragut is ranked No. 1 in the Chicago area--at least until the Admirals prove themselves in the Board of Education Holiday Shootout on Wednesday through Saturday--and boasts arguably the best college/NBA prospect in the state in 6-10 Michael Dunigan.
The Oregon-bound Dunigan has elevated himself to being one of the elite players in the nation. A year ago, coach William Nelson admitted Dunigan was "so-so, lukewarm, had potential but hadn't arrived."
Now Nelson has another opinion. "He has more polish and is more aggressive. He belongs in a class with the best big players we have produced--Kevin Garnett, Elliot Poole, Michael Wright, Curtis Ganes," Nelson said.
