What I wrote – Headliner: "Xavier Owens could be just the type of do-it-all player Robert Burke needs in Emmitsburg. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound wing was a versatile scoring threat for Wharton High in Wesley Chapel, Fla."
What he did: Owens averaged 2.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 24 games. Burke, meanwhile, didn't last through the end of his second season with the Mount.
Who it should have been: Kelvin Parker, a 6-foot-4 walk-on forward from York, Pa., quickly proved to be an indispensable member of the Mountaineers, averaging nine points and starting 26 of 29 games. Parker also averaged 4.6 rebounds and shot 42 percent from the field.
What I wrote – Sleeper: "Taylor Danaher, a 6-foot-10 center, was home-schooled before playing for Fredericksburg (Va.) Christian last season. He’s a developmental prospect that intrigued Burke enough to offer him a scholarship before last fall’s signing period."
What he did: Danaher redshirted.
Who it should have been: Parker was the ultimate sleeper. Besides him, Chad Holley, a 6-foot point guard from New York City, put up 3.3 points per game and saw action in 28 contests.
