Tyreke Evans was the #1 ranked HS player in the country last season and last year was the winner of the Triple Crown (MVP of the the Boost Mobile Elite 24 Game, the McDonald’s All American Game & the Jordan Brand Classic Game). Tyreke is considered to be a lottery pick in this year’s 2009 NBA DRAFT and will be contributing to Philly Hoops monthly.

Dear Diary,

We lost last week in the sweet 16 round of the tourny. The game was played in Phoenix, Arizona on the same field where this year’s Super Bowl was played. I felt bad for Antonio, Robert and Chance because they are seniors and it meant that their college career is over. We thought we were going to win the whole thing. Coach Cal did a great job of preparing us but Missouri hit every shot they took and we didnt always execute. I scored 33 points which was a career high for me. My mom told me that I made the cover of Sports Illustrated again. Nothing gets by her. The semester doesn’t end until the first week of May, so now I get to focus more on school.I havent made up my mind about entering the draft.

I’ll get with my brothers and figure out what to do next about the draft. Reggie has been getting alot of feedback from personnel people so he’ll have a good idea about what happens next for me. Its going to be a tough decision but either way I cant go wrong. Next year’s recruiting class is ranked #1, so we are going to be even better. The next time I write you will know my decision so stayed tuned.
