Doug McDermott is a small forward for the Indiana Pacers. He's also one of the greatest college basketball players ever.
At Creighton University, McDermott was a three-time consensus first-team All-American.
In 2014, he was the consensus National College Player of the Year.
However, McDermott didn't crack the starting five at Ames High School (Ames, Iowa) until his senior year. With a lineup that featured future NBA star Harrison Barnes, McDermott had to bide his time and come off the bench.
"In high school, all the attention was going toward Harrison, so I was the guy that was always under the radar," McDermott told CollegeInsider.com. "I still haven't changed much. I'm not a guy who goes online or searches for myself. I just try to enjoy my time with my teammates."
McDermott averaged 20.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game his senior year en route to first-team All-State honors.
He went on to sign with Creighton, where his father, Greg McDermott, was head coach of the men's basketball team.
