according to a new SI documentary is Westtown High during the 16/17 season. The team had Mo Bamba and Cam Reddish (both projected high lottery picks in their drafts) as well as Brandon Randolph (Arizona), Anthony Ochefu (Stony Brook), and Jake Forrester (committed to Indiana).https://www.si.com/high-school/2018/03/07/we-town-documentary-sitv-westtown-mo-bamba-seth-bergerClearly some recency bias here, but it got me to thinking, what other teams had two high lottery picks and a bunch of other potential pros. Obviously Chino Hills with Lonzo, LiAngelo, and LaMelo (who like Lonzo might have been a lottery pick had his dad not pulled him to Europe), along with Eli Scott (Loyola Marymount) and Onyeka Okongwu (undeclared #16 recruit in 2019).Then you had Lawrence North out of Indianapolis. Which had #1 pick Greg Oden and #4 pick Michael Conley (not sure who else was on that team). Any other great high school teams come to mind?
Dunbar '81-82 & '82-83.

That's a lot of great pros for one high school team. And I think a couple of other guys were great because if I remember right, Reggie Lewis always came off the bench.
Lebron's team won 3 state titles (they lost in the semis his junior year) and he played with a couple of guys that are still playing professionally in Europe (Romeo Travis and Dru Joyce - they both also played for Cleveland in the Vegas Summer League), as well as the rapper Sian Cotton (who played football at Ohio State), and a couple of other guys that had decent college careers (one of which is now a high school coach and one of which is a scout for the Cavs). I didn't originally include his teams because they really were successful only because of Lebron, but it is hard to find a player in high school that was more successful, both individually and as a team than Lebron James and St. Vincent St. Mary during his 4 years there.
