Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
The Chicago Sun-TImes is reporting that the father of highly recruited Chicago area hoopster is seeking big bucks for a commitment. The reports from three sources surfaced after the kid reduced his list to Kentucky, Syracuse and Ohio State.
The player's AAU coach is former Michigan football and basketball player, Tai Streets. Kentucky and the father have issued denials.
