Dillard High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., is no stranger to placing guys at Division I schools. Joe McCray, Jimmy Tobias, Clarence Gilbert and Keyon Dooling all came from the Sunshine State school. You can add Maxwell Dubois to the list now, too. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound shooting guard is headed to the Big Ten after officially his future home over the weekend.
Dubois verbally committed to Penn State, according to his AAU coach Kenny Gillion.
"He had a great time on the visit," Gillion said. "They are looking forward for him to him coming in a working right away in the Big Ten."
The Lions will have a guy that knows a little something about winning and playing in big basketball games. Dubois averaged 14 points per game as a senior. Sure that doesn't sound like much but considering what other Dillard products have down, the perspective paints the picture of the player Dubois is, says Gillion.
"(Nebraska's) Joe McCray only averaged 15 when he was a senior. Tobias (Oklahoma), (former Missouri start) Clarence Gilbert and (NBA guard) Keyon Dooling were all the same way," says Gillion.
Dubois has been raised in a basketball system and his game discpline will help him make the transition to the next level.
