    Kid playing highschool basketball after college

    People think this kid, who is a stand out basketball player at a highschool in Texas, is the same kid who played at South Florida. He is using a different name and claiming to be 16.

    Re: Kid playing highschool basketball after college

    so messed up, and if they know he is illegal, how the heck is he able to stay here and play ball??? When they raid the pork plants they take husbands and wives away from each other and their children… but he can stay and play basketball… Im for illegals being made to go home to their native country, but then there shouldnt be exceptions if you can play basketball... what a joke.

    Haiti is a disaster area he can't go back.
    He can play until they prove he can't.
    My guess, it is the same kid but the first identity was stolen.

    Re: Kid playing highschool basketball after college

    This would be like the equivalent of me going back and playing 7th grade basketball now. I could be unstopable! Of course those little ******* could probably run faster than me and I'd be gassed after the first few trips up and down the court.

    Re: Kid playing highschool basketball after college

    If I read the story correctly, it never said he played at South Florida. It just said "he starred in South Florida". But still, nonetheless, it is pretty crazy.

    How could you prove it definitively without having both of them in the same room at the same time? They can say the fingerprints don't match, but how do they even have fingerprints of the Florida kid to begin with? By most accounts nobody there knows where he is. How can it be said definitively they compared the right fingerprints if one of the people can't be located?

    With the South Florida connection there has to be a Dave McCartney joke in here somewhere. Anyone?
