South Florida twins and top basketball prospects Ausar and Amen Thompson are foregoing their final high school season and college.
The duo will be signing two-year contracts with the new Overtime Elite professional league, according to Shams Charania.
Ausar averaged 22.6 PPG, 7.2 RPG, and 3.4 APG while Amen averaged 20.5 PPG, 8.4 RPG, and 4.4 APG last season for Pine Crest in Fort Lauderdale.
Amen is the 38th ranked player in the class of 2022 according to Rivals.com and Ausar in the 40th ranked prospect. Both 6’6 forwards have 16 college offers including offers from Florida, Florida State, Kansas, Arizona, Kansas, St. John’s Oklahoma State, Auburn, Iowa State and more.
The Thompson’s join Orlando twins Matt and Ryan Bewley, highly touted prospects from the class of 2023 to forgo high school and college to join the new league.
