Bestselling sportswriter John Feinstein exposes the big money and back-room
deals that pervade college-basketball recruiting in this fast-break young adult
novel. Terrell Jamerson is the #1 high school basketball player in the country.
His team is poised to win State, top colleges are lining up to give him
scholarships, and everyone says he could play in the NBA tomorrow. But it only
takes one false step to lose everything. Danny Wilcox is Terrell's best friend
and teammate, and a top prospect himself, but these days it seems like
"everyone" wants to get close to Terrell: the sneaker guys, the money managers,
the college boosters. They show up offering fast cars, hot girls, and cold, hard
cash. They say they just want to help, but their kind of help could get Terrell
disqualified. Danny and Terrell better keep their eyes on the ball if they hope
to last the season. The winner is Ravinder K. Congratulaitons!
