FRANKLIN, Ohio -- Remember the name Luke Kennard.

The Franklin High School junior is so good at basketball, it's almost guaranteed you're going to see him on a college court in the near future.

"My dad likes to tell people I was born with a ball in my hand," Kennard said.

Kennard averages more than 40 points per game, has double figures in rebounds and close to double figures in assists.

His skills have drawn the mighty of college basketball to Franklin High School this winter -- including North Carolina head coach Roy Williams and University of Kentucky's John Calipari.

At 6-foot-5 and growing, he has emerged as one of the best college basketball prospects in the country.
