The Rams graduate five players this offseason including three (Marcus Evans, De’Riante Jenkins and Issac Vann) that averaged double-digit scoring as juniors.

Banks averaged 16.5 points per game this summer with Team United, connecting on 47% of his attempts.

“The coaching staff just made me feel like I could call this place home for the next four years,” Banks told 247Sports.com
