The list is long but not so illustrious.
It contains familiar names like Emeka Okafor and Charlie Villanueva but also includes forgettable faces such as Travis Knight and Jake Voskuhl.
It's the fraternity of big men from the University of Connecticut. Some have gone on to great success in the NBA. Most have not.
Hasheem Thabeet is next in line, for better or for worse.
The 7-foot-3 center is projected to be a top three pick in the June 25 NBA Draft, and the Thunder is in play for his services. A career path similar to Okafor's would be nice. One similar to Knight's would be a nightmare.
Such has become the dilemma when drafting UConn big men. The Huskies have had great success cranking out top flight NBA talent on the perimeter. Players like Ray Allen, Ben Gordon, Richard Hamilton, Caron Butler and Rudy Gay headline the list.
But more than a few stiffs have come out of Storrs, Conn. Serviceable is a more polite label and perhaps more appropriate considering how the former Huskies have managed to cling to careers. But Connecticut's big men by and large just haven't found the same success in the NBA as they enjoyed in college.
"It's fair to say, but historically that means nothing," said ESPN basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb. "Recently, they've had some duds. But I think those guys reaped some of the benefits of some of the earlier guys. And Thabeet is more like some of the guys they had previously."
Hilton Armstrong was the 12th overall pick by New Orleans in 2006 after ranking in the top 10 in the nation in blocked shots at 3.1 per game as a senior. So far, he's averaged just 12.9 minutes, 3.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in his first three seasons.
Similar examples can be found with Voskuhl, Knight and Josh Boone. Okafor, Villanueva, Donyell Marshall and Clifford Robinson are the most successful post players to come out of Connecticut in the Jim Calhoun era.
"I think (Thabeet) wants everyone to believe that he's full of this powerful confidence," said Mike Anthony, who covers the Huskies for the Hartford Courant. "I think he does have some confidence. But I think he does have some fear about the challenges of being great and meeting those expectations of everyone expecting him to be great."
Gottlieb credited Calhoun's system for helping some of his former players stand out, specifically big men who benefit from guards being instructed to funnel players into the teeth of the defense where shot blockers loom. Nonetheless, Gottlieb said, Thabeet is legit and has the size, timing and fundamental principles of defending without fouling to excel at what he does best at the next level.
"He really has made remarkable improvement, and for a period of time he dominated college basketball," Gottlieb said of Thabeet, who averaged 4.2 blocked shots before declaring after his junior season. "They're making everybody drive to him, and nobody wants to drive at him because he blocks everything."
Thabeet was last season's Big East Defensive Player of the Year, the same honor Armstrong, Boone and Okafor carried with them as they started their professional careers. But many NBA people who scrutinized Thabeet all season believe he has ample skills to avoid falling into the Armstrong/Boone category.
"He changes games," an Eastern Conference scout told The Oklahoman. "If he doesn't give you anything on the offensive end, he can change the game defensively. There's not a lot of guys in this draft that can come in with their presence alone who can alter the game."
