In 1950-51 ND basketball recruited 6'5 Dick Rosenthal from St Louis McBride HS

1952-53 ND BB added 6'5 Lloyd Aubrey St Louis DeAndries

Both Rosenthal & Aubrey were named 'Chuck Taylor' Prep AA(in the days before the Parade & McDonalds Prep AA teams- link..albeit Rosenthal hometown is mislabeled on roster.

1953-54 ND BB addded 6'7 Hank Luepke from St Louis

a 1959-60 ND recruit-Bill Kurz 6'8 from Quincy, Ill actually transferred from ND to St Louis U(and had a decent career for the Billikens)

...as the link points out, Chuck Taylor's HS AA game/team left out any African American players...hence the reason the All Star game died out by the mid-50s...just around the time that Parade Prep AA team replaced it.
