From UAB to Memphis to Kentucky
After first committing to Alabama-Birmingham, top-ranked center DeMarcus Cousins didn't sign a letter of intent with the school because a clause was deleted that said he could be released if UAB's head coach Mike Davis left the program. Cousins then turned his sights to Memphis, but soon decommitted when head coach John Calipari moved to Kentucky. Cousins committed to the Wildcats and signed his letter of intent on April 15, 2009. Cousins left Kentucky after his freshman year and was taken No. 5 overall in the 2010 draft by the Sacramento Kings.
