Last Chance U: Where Are They Now?

Since the pandemic, time has flown at what seems like the speed of light. As time is passing us by, it’s important to remember the past, and today I will be diving into where four Last Chance U Basketball fan favorites are now in 2022.


Coach Mosley

Coach John Mosley remains at East LA College, going into his eleventh season as head coach. Coach Mosley was named one of 50 most impactful coaches in JUCO Men’s Basketball and looks to continue coaching his alma mater in ELAC, where he boasts a 214-55 record going into this season. In Season One of Last Chance U, Coach Mosley lead the Huskies to a 25-game win streak headed into a playoff bout with San Francisco before being canceled in March of 2020 due to the pandemic. While Coach Mosley could coach at a bigger school after his JUCO success, it is more about changing the lives of young men and giving them an opportunity that was not there once before. For Coach John Mosley, his job is truly bigger than basketball.


Coach Rob

Earlier in 2022, Coach Rob Robinson was selected by MiraCosta College to lead their Men’s Basketball program. Coach Rob became the Spartans coach after assistant coaching at ELAC for three years, as well as being the head coach for Notre Dame High School for twenty years prior. While at ELAC, Coach Rob accumulated a 78-11 record, including a 29-1 record in season one of Last Chance U. The one NCAA National Championship qualifying high jumper in Coach Rob is looking to hop over his competition while coaching for MiraCosta College, where he currently boasts a 6-4 record with Imperial Valley next on their schedule.


Deshaun Highler

Deshaun Highler was a fan favorite from the jump, grabbing the hearts of every fan watching. After the heart breaking ending to his season in 2020, Deshaun spent time at Sacramento State. After leaving college, Deshuan Highler began his pro-basketball career in Columbia this year. Highler now plays for Cimarrones Del Choco in the Columbian Professional League. He is currently averaging 9.5 PPG, more than he averaged at Sacramento State. When Deshaun isn’t playing basketball, you can find him on social media talking about building a life around his family through basketball.


Joe Hampton

After leaving ELAC Joe Hampton began his professional career in Colombia with Pirates Do Bogota. Earlier this year, Hampton had a game where he scored 18 points, dished out two assists and snagged seven rebounds. Since that game, Hampton has averaged 15.5 points per game, 5.9 rebounds per game and 2.6 blocks per game. Before playing in Colombia, Joe played at Long Beach State and even signed an NIL deal with Reebok, showing he has a lot of potential to be unlocked in his pro career.
