In the mid 1990s the Bishop Hartley freshman was called the best player in his class in the nation, ahead of future NBA stars like Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest.

When ranking the best athletes ever from Columbus, you might think of names like Buster Douglas, Terry Glenn, or Michael Redd.

You probably don't think of Estaban Weaver. 

In the mid 1990s the Bishop Hartley freshman was called the best player in his class in the nation and a can't-miss college prospect.

But he did miss. Weaver was kicked out of several schools and never played major college basketball. Weaver is the subject of the new documentary Who is Estaban, which screens in Columbus this weekend.

For WOSU's sports show After the Score, Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley spoke with Weaver and the documentary's co-director Ryan Conley.
