ABOUT THE FAB FIVE: The 1991 University of Michigan Men’s Basketball team, known as the “Fab Five,” consisted of four McDonald’s High-school All-American’s (Howard, King, Rose & Webber) and is regarded as one of the most talented recruiting classes in NCAA Basketball history. Detroit natives Chris Webber (#1) and Jalen Rose (#5) joined Chicago native Juwan Howard (#3) and two recruits from Texas: Plano’s Jimmy King (#9) and Austin’s Ray Jackson (#84). In the first game starting together as a regular unit in February of 1992, the five freshman scored all the team’s points against Notre Dame. Four of the five members from the trend-setting team went on to play in the NBA.
