Sundays with Sondheimer: The potential of Tyler Honeycutt

June 26, 2011 |  8:00 am

On Sundays this summer, I'm presenting my favorite videos from those I've shot over the last three years and telling the back story.

In 2009, Tyler Honeycutt of Sylmar had just begun to receive attention as one of the top high school basketball prospects in Southern California. He was all about potential, and his coach, Bort Escoto, made it clear that Honeycutt was "a very special player" because of his work ethic.

Honeycutt talked about how he liked to do everything on the court. He went on to play two seasons at UCLA and on Thursday, he was selected in the second round of the NBA draft by the Sacramento Kings.

Here's a look back at Honeycutt when he was a senior at Sylmar.
