Cleveland State's Norris Cole, and His Flat-Top, Will Be Drafted Tonight


1 comment


Former Cleveland State point guard and all-around all-star Norris Cole will be taken in the NBA draft tonight, perhaps as early as the late first round. Even if he falls to the second, it's still a huge success for Cole, who after high school only had one Division I scholarship offer: Cleveland State. Coach Gary Waters saw early on what NBA teams are just seeing now.

Yes, he also sports an epic flat-top.

Here's his ESPN draft profile and here's a profile we did on him after his sophomore season.

Good luck tonight, Norris.
