The first-team All-American says “Frank the Tank” comes from the movie “Old School.”

The nickname “Moose” comes from his jersey number. Kaminsky, who wears number 44, said if you put four fingers to each side of your head, you will look like a moose. A very interesting way to receive a nickname.

Kaminsky is a top prospect in the upcoming NBA Draft and is projected to be a top 10 pick.
