When Houston’s senior forward Devonta Pollard was a promising young freshman at Alabama his entire world came crashing down around him. His mom was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for kidnapping in a family dispute leading to Devonta withdrawing from Alabama. Devonta would spend a year playing for East Mississippi Community College before being recruited by Kelvin Sampson in 2014 to play for the Houston Cougars. Devonta has made the most of his second chance and looks to have an excellent final college basketball game tonight against Cincinnati. Check out the full story of Devonta’s second chance here.
