Recently regarded as one of the most talented players in New York City, Devin attended and played for Bishop Laughlin High School last season where he had a trying time on the court and in the classroom.

During the school year, Ebanks transferred to Lenoir, N.C.'s Patterson School, in an effort to fortify himself academically and athletically. By all accounts, he did well there.

This year's AAU season saw Ebanks make an imprint on the national recruiting scene. He has firmly established himself as one of the best players in the class of 2008.

Devin, a small forward who currently stands 6-foot-7 tips the scales at 205 pounds, possesses an offensive repertoire that equips him to attack the rim, shoot over defenders on the perimeter, post, and score off stick backs.
