Then they play in the D2 tournament. The only schools who have the advantage Dunbar has is the GCL South, and if you notice, they never play them. Also, other than Norris Cole what Dunbar player has lived up to his potential at the next level. Don't say Cooke. Didn't start at OSU and now is out of the League.
Well, I would say Mark Baker who played at Dunbar and was an all-american and then went on to Ohio State and was very successful as a Buckeye and was part of Back to Ba k Big Ten Championships and was one of the top 5 assist leaders of all time when he left. I would say he lived up to his potential coming out of Dunbar and going to the next level.
