Banks is a 6’5 330 lb guard. He went to high school in El Cerrito, California.
Banks did not play in any games as a true freshman, preserving his NCAA eligibility for an extra year. He played in all 13 of Notre Dame’s games and started the final six as a sophomore. He started all 13 of the Fighting Irish’s games as a junior. As a senior Banks again started every game for Notre Dame and was named first team All-ACC.
