ST. LOUIS- Former Billiken forward Hasahn French will find out later this summer where his basketball career is headed, most likely with a chance to play on an NBA Summer League team, or potentially somewhere overseas.

But he doesn’t appear to be closed off to opportunities outside the sport, either.

This week, French is trying out for the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, as a possible tight end.

There is a long line of basketball-turned football players who have made the leap to NFL success, including Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham and others.
