First-year Laker Montrezl Harrell is known for his flashy style, and upbeat play, but his upbringing is a stark contrast to that, coming from Hargrave Military school.

Montrezl said the military academy experience transformed him.

"The trials and tribulations of military school was definitely one of them things where you had to learn how to really be an adult … Clean cut shave, wearing the uniform, getting up at five o'clock in the morning, making it to formation for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which you had to do every day, making your classes ... Like I said, it definitely prepared me for life,” said Harrell.
