Greg Miclisse's mother always believed her son had a future in football. "One day," she'd tell him, "you'll be the first overall pick of the Miami Dolphins."

Miclisse, who preferred the hardwood to turf, wasn't so sure. The Florida native just shrugged off his mother's words as if she ordered him to clean his room. He was a shooting guard, not a linebacker, he'd tell her. But after years of persistence, he finally relented and tried out as a freshman.

"At first I was like, 'Get out of here, I'm a basketball player,' " the 2014 prospect out of Palm Bay (Fla.) Bayside said with a laugh.
