From turf fields and quarterbacks to hard courts and three-point shots: after five seasons of junior college football content, Last Chance U transitioned into its first-ever iteration focused on junior college basketball (making this season six of the Last Chance U series). Enter the East Los Angeles College (ELAC) Huskies led by Coach John Mosley and staff as well as Deshaun Highler, Huskies captain and shooting guard who spent one year at the University of Texas at El Paso as a walk-on and stood out right away as a fierce leader when he came to ELAC.

After their fight to win the state championship was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the men accepted other opportunities at the next level. Highler moved out of the Riverside home he had shared with his late mom, who died from cancer in 2018, to Sacramento, where he lives with his girlfriend, Kiera (she recently started Kaykurl, an all-natural hair-care product company). Highler now plays at the Division I level for the Sacramento State Hornets.

Sacramento State confirmed that the majority of spring semester classes are still being held virtually. However, the school’s basketball team, piloted by head coach Brian Katz, continues to play this season as of this article’s release. Though COVID-19 has resulted in 10 canceled games throughout the season so far, they’re preparing for the four-day, single-elimination Big Sky Tournament where they are seeded ninth. It begins March 10.

Highler wears No. 12 on his jersey, and despite his social media being pretty sparse, we do know that he’s a computer science major and is completing his junior year.
