jordan classic game
the jordon classic high school all star game was another good chance to look at next years incoming college freshman
imo it was the 3rd best game that i saw after the hoops summit and mcdonalds- many of the same players have been impressive in multiple games
greg monroe- 6-10- power forward-georgetown- best physical specimin in the class-by a long way imo- he would be the first hs player selected if they werent banned from the draft
-brandon jennings 6-0 point gaurd-arizona- i keep knocking guys like augustine and collison saying that the nba isn't for little guys, but this guy is special talent with quickness that doesnt come around often- imo on a whole level higher than a mike conley jr-
scotty hopson- 6-6 shooting gaurd- tennessee- this guy in my opinion is the most polished nba 2 gaurd prospect- he is farther along than derozen and is a more natural wing player than evans
tyreke evans-6-5 - combo gaurd- memphis - evans may potentially have the most talent as an nba player, he may have the ability to play the 1 or 2, evans seems to have a high basketball iq and wants to become a great defender-which he has the skills to become- size and ablilty wise id even go as far as to say i see shades of kobe- alot of work to do as he really needs to develop his ball handling and passing and playmaking for others
jrue holiday- 6-4- ucla- this guy is so solid that you barely notice him- has it all to become a great point gaurd but is so unassuming and versitile that he may spend most of his career at ucla on the wing- he will be at ucla for atleast 2 years
malcom lee- 6-4 pg-ucla- this guy is imo the rising star of the class and will step right in and pick up where westbrook and collison left off- coming in with 3 other 5 star freshman it will be interesting to watch how they fit, but lee will fit as he has the speed and the frame to be an impact player both at ucla and in the nba
drew gordon will be a very good pf for ucla just as ed davis and north carolinas other new pf(eventually) recruit will be- the 6-11 white guy???
besides ucla the most impact any recruiting class may have should be wake forest- they have added the perfect peices by adding two centers and a pf to james johnson to now have a frontcourt that could be electric- fariq-aminou imo isnt the nba superstar sf that some see, but he could imo be a very good pf and work his way into the lotter in 2-3 years- woods is a 7-2 center with jumping ability- wake may now have the pieces to join johnson teague and ld williams to become a big time national power
how do you sort the next frosh class out?- who will be the stars?- who will be exposed in college?
