20. DeAndre Jordan (Texas A&M)
Growing up in the suburbs of Houston, Texas, Hyland DeAndre Jordan Jr. passed up the chances to play for schools like Kentucky, Florida, and Indiana, staying home and enrolling at Texas A&M. During his lone season in College Station, Jordan established himself as a dominant presence in the post, hitting 61.7% of his field goals (almost all within a few feet from the basket) while pulling down 6.0 rebounds per game.
Still, Jordan fell to the 2nd round of the 2008 NBA Draft, and was taken by the Los Angeles Clippers. Paired alongside Blake Griffin and Chris Paul, Jordan became a key member of the “Lob City” Clippers that were one of the NBA’s most exciting teams. But in addition to the flare on the court, Jordan was a two-time member of All-NBA Third Team, and two-time All-Defensive First Team as well.
