Fab Five's Jimmy King Gives Advice to Young Players

He was part of perhaps the most famous recruiting class in college basketball history. Jimmy King enrolled at the University of Michigan in 1991 as part of the "Fab Five." Along with Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard and Ray Jackson, King helped the Wolverines to the 1992 and 1993 NCAA championship game. King later played parts of two seasons in the NBA.

Recently, King spoke to members of the iHoops First Team about the journey that high school basketball players can expect to take moving into college and, eventually, the real world. Here, King offers his advice for transitioning to college, developing the social skills needed to be successful in life, and becoming a leader.
