Netflix’s ‘Last Chance U: Basketball’ has given the ‘Last Chance’ franchise a new life by turning towards junior college basketball instead of focusing only on junior college American football. With the series highlighting powerhouse athletes and renowned coaches who would go to any extent for their players’ welfare, we see a tale of compassion and conviction like no other. In simpler words, ‘Last Chance U: Basketball’ broadens the scope of Greg Whiteley’s sports documentary empire in a way nothing ever has. So let’s find out what the cast members of the series are currently up to, shall we?
Where is Coach John Mosley Now?
Having started his college basketball career with the East Los Angeles College (ELAC) Huskies, Captain John Mosley has come full circle by being the head coach for the same. The only missing aspect for him is the California state championship title. However, he maintains his hope of one day lifting that trophy as well. But, in saying that, the Coach’s main aim of providing his players with an opportunity to create a better life for themselves remains his top priority. Therefore, the former NCAA Division-I California State University Bakersfield assistant coach is still at ELAC, keeping close to his roots and his family.
Where is Coach Kenneth “Ken” Hunter Now?
Coach Kenneth “Ken” Hunter was an incredible athlete. But unfortunately, when he was at the LA Trade Tech College, trying to get his collegiate basketball career rolling, he met with an accident that left him paralyzed. A friendly fight with his roommate turned into life in a wheelchair. Yet, when Coach Ken realized he could still be around his favorite sport due to his skills, he made his way back as a trainer. Currently, the Anaheim resident is not only an Assistant Coach and Lead Recruiter for ELAC, but he’s also the General Manager and Head Coach at California Basketball Association.
Where is Coach Rob Robinson Now?
Although Coach Robert “Rob” Robinson was the latest addition to the ELAC basketball coaching team back for the 2019-2020 season, his experience shone through in everything he did. After all, he’d already helmed a successful two-decade run as the head coach at Notre Dame High School, which earned him the titles of Cal-Hi State Coach of the Year, SCIBCA Southern Section Coach of the Year, and Press-Enterprise Coach of the Year. We’re thus happy to report that he has since moved up the ladder and is now living his dream of serving as a Head Men’s Basketball Coach at the collegiate level. With the support of his loving wife, Coach Rob is actually at MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California, at the moment.
Where is Deshaun Highler Now?
Deshaun Highler, the Shooting Guard and Captain for the ELAC Huskies’ 2019-20 basketball season, had moved on to be a computer science major at the University of California-Sacramento. However, we can positively divulge that he has not only since graduated but also turned pro — the 6’2″ athelete currently plays for Cimarrones Del Choco in the Colombian Professional League. As if this isn’t enough, Deshaun even launched his own brand by the name of Bred Winner recently and is seemingly backing his long-term love Kiera Lusk’s beauty venture Kaykurl. With his career average being 4.6 points plus 1.5 assists, alongside 1.7 rebounds as well as a field game percentage of 34.6, he has made it clear he’ll now be utilizing his basketball skills to travel the work and build a life for his family.
Where is Malik Muhammad Now?
After averaging 9.6 points and 1.9 blocks per game while shooting at 56.4% from the field and 70.7% from the line in the 2019-2020 season with the Huskies, Center Malik Muhammad was recruited by Central Michigan University. He’d decided to major in psychology at this National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division I school, but he soon moved on to join the Division II Campbellsville University in Kentucky as a Tiger. From what we can tell, the 6′ 9,” 230 lbs athlete is a senior at the moment, averaging at 0.7 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 0.4 blocks per game, with his overall field game percentage being 37.5%. He also collaborated with NIL Pro Shop to launch a merch line recently.
Where is Joe Hampton Now?
Joe Hampton, the Power Forward and Center for the ELAC Huskies and a dropdown from Penn State, went back into the Division I basketball game after four long years once the 2019-2020 season came to an end. Standing at 6’8″ and 250 lbs, he proudly served as a Forward for Long Beach State for two years, that is, until he graduated with a major in American Studies in May 2022. As for his current standing, the youngster is playing the Colombian Professional League alongside his fellow ELAC athlete Deshaun — the only difference is the former is signed with the Piratas De Bogota. His career average is 9.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game, plus his overall field game percentage is 44.4%.
Where is KJ Allen Now?
As a Small Forward, KJ Allen became a star for the Huskies within a year of his joining. And in the 2019-20 season, the 6’6″, 225 lbs athlete averaged 18.5 points and 9.3 rebounds per game, with his shooting percentage being an incredible 68.9%. Therefore, it is no surprise that he got offers from Rutgers University, Western Kentucky, LMU, Fresno State, San Diego State, Oregon State, Washington State, University of Southern California, and a few more. Yet ultimately, even though the Los Angeles native had decided to stick to his hometown by verbally committing to the University of Southern California, he is presently doing wonders at Texas Tech University as a Junior class Red Raiders forward.
