2009 High School Rankings Released

Wed, 08/27/2008 - 10:36pm


After a busy summer of tracking the top prep talent in the country, from events in Philadelphia (RBK Camp), Las Vegas (adidas Super64 & Reebok Summer Championships), Dallas (adidas Nations), Portland (Nike Global Challenge) and New York City (Elite 24) plus watching footage of numerous players, we present our High School Rankings including top 50 rising seniors, top 25 rising juniors, and top 5 rising sophomores. While the current high school talent pales in comparison to recent years (2007 and 2008), there's some extremely talented prospects to focus on nonetheless.

High School Rankings

Class of 2009



John Wall

Beginning with the rising senior class of 2009, John Wall tops the list with his off the charts quickness and explosiveness from the point guard position. He still must work at improving his jumpshot and polish his point guard skills. While still raw, his size, 6'4, and vision combined with his athleticism gives him the edge as the top prospect in the senior class. Provided Wall continues working hard, he's the odds on favorite to be the top overall pick in 2010.

Next up in the senior class is Xavier Henry who has prototypical size and athleticism for the 2-guard position. He missed the end of the summer due to injury but his polished skills and upside give him the nod over a handful of talented bigmen in the class.

Coming in third is Derrick Favors who could be the most dominant player on the high school level. His ability to impact both ends of the floor and his non-stop motor, giving strong effort every time out, makes his outlook extremely bright. He'll need to improve his range and offensive game, but has a lot to work with, and should be an impact guy from the time he sets foot on a college floor.

6-9 bigman DeMarcus Cousins shows a great deal of potential with a 7-foot-6 wingspan and soft touch on his shot. He's already got a strong body and solid offensive skills. The question marks with Cousins surround his intensity and desire. He may have even more upside than Favors, but he doesn't always show up or give his all every minute on the floor.

Speaking of potential, while John Henson has some major work to do on his body, he shows a lot of upside due to his speed in the open floor and offensive skills. He displays the ability to knock down mid-range shots and a willingness to compete. Great news for North Carolina fans as there's a good chance he'll be around for a few seasons as he lacks the freakish athleticism of a Brandan Wright, meaning he must put on some bulk before attempting a jump to the pros.

Kenny Boynton may lack a true position as a 6-2 scoring guard, but his killer instinct and competitiveness is second to none. He lacks great form on his shot but it's highly effective. He may lack the upside of some other players in this class, but he's as ready as anyone to impact the college game and develop into a pro.

Although he has slipped on some rankings, Dominic Cheek has a very polished offensive game and the length and athletic ability to continue to improve. He needs to add strength to his frame but his mid-range game is advanced for a high schooler.

The West Coast checks in beginning with Jordan Hamilton who's game is both smooth and mature. Hamilton shows the ability to bring the ball up and make plays for others with his vision and passing ability. Wouldn't he work well, ala Lamar Odom, in a Phil Jackson-style triangle offense?

The summer's biggest riser Avery Bradley leapfrogged high school and AAU teammate Abdul Gaddy. Although Gaddy has better size for his position, Bradley's combination of length (wingspan), athleticism, picture perfect jumpshot and ability to defend (he might be the best defender in the class) will allow him to overcome his size deficiency.

Squeaking into the top ten by the skin of his teeth is Renardo Sidney who after his first two years in high school was the clear cut top prospect in the class and appeared destined for greatness. Those lofty expectations have been severely decreased and there are fears that his immense talents are being wasted. While the game comes extremely easy to him when he tries, the problem is he rarely sustains any intensity level and focus. The right college situation will be key for his development and future.

Class of 2010



Brandon Knight

After much deliberation, Iowa wing Harrison Barnes grabbed the top spot among the 2010 class. Barnes combines superb athleticism with a smooth offensive game, and the prerequisite size and athleticism to play on the wing. His excellent showing at the Nike Global Challenge in Portland gave him the edge over classmates Knight and Thompson.

Charging hard for the top spot in the class, Florida point guard Brandon Knight makes the game appear very easy. His lightning quick first step makes him extremely difficult to guard. He shows excellent scoring ability and a developing ability to create for others.

Texas commit Tristan Thompson has the look and feel of a star. He's 6-8 with a perfect physique to play the 3 at the highest level. Right now though he has a lot of work to do at making the transition for a PF into a SF. Barnes, Knight and Thompson round out the top three rising junior prospects.

Class of 2011

While he still has bouts of inconsistent play, it's amazing to think that Seattle based sophomore to be Tony Wroten is 1993 born. In Vegas, he looked to be among the top 3-5 players overall in high school regardless of class.

He's a bigtime athlete with huge upside but will need to grow a few inches to truly become special. His unselfishness and vision in particular make him very intriguing and the clear cut top prospect in his class.

LANCE STEPHENSON

I don't understand how Lance Stephenson continuously gets no love on this site. He is not listed in the 2010 NBA Draft AT ALL, nor was he mentioned in this article. He is the OJ Mayo of this class. Cocky yet productive. He might not ever win an NBA championship, but he will be a NBA all-star at least twice in his career. Stephenson is a lottery lock for the 2010 Draft and this site needs to recognize that.

Stephenson

Based on what NBA scouts said about Stephenson in Dallas (adidas Nations) and the way he has shown minimal improvement over the past 2 years, he's not even close to a lottery pick.

Part of the problem is that he's being told he's an NBA player right now and his game is NOT improving. He needs to prove himself on the college level before being considered an NBA player, much less lottery pick or future all star

He has a flashy game and the ability to dominate against weaker players (Elite 24) but what about his game makes you think he will be an NBA all star? He is far below NBA 2Gs in terms of athletcism. And aside from his great handle and ability to overpower 17 year olds, what skills does he have right now to play shooting guard at the highest level?

It isn't that he "gets no love" from this site. Our Elite 24 write up praised his leadership skills, and noted his positive attributes.

There is no bias, if he proves himself at the college level and NBA scouts say he's a lottery pick that's where he will appear on the mock draft. But he has a LONG way to go to be considered a lottery pick. Trust me, despite all the hype, he could just as easily turn into Lenny Cooke if he stops working hard and believes all the hype.

He should plan on a 2-3 year college career, because at this point he appears to be setting himself up for a big fall. The NYC hype surrounding him is out of control. To place him in the lottery right now would be caving into unwarrented hype.

born ready

Mr smith I respect ur knowledge in the recruiting field but lance stephenson is deffinitely the best player in this class..he dominated both last years and this year boost mobile elite 24
He has the jumpshot,
Strength and handle to be a potential star.. I have to admit I'm pretty annoyed you don't even have him on the top ten.. John wall number 1? I mean he's a great high school player but his jump shot is non existant..to the point he makes tony parker look efficent..I also want to comment on your lack of love for tyreke evans..y is he not a potential top 5 pick?
Considering a few years ago he dominated eric gordon and rose on a bum ankle..I also believe blake griffin as the number 1 pick is very questionable...love the site tho keep up the good work

brandon knight

I don't understand how he's rated over joe jackson..knight has one hesitation move..his creativity just isn't there...which is need in a great point guard..his jump shot is adequate at best...other than his explosiveness and speed I really don't see too much in this kid...jackson on the other hand has it all and
His jump shot is pure not to mention he's a great athlete

Fair Ranking For Lance Stephenson

I would like to comment on the Lance Stephenson debate. I feel Lance Stephenson is mentioned plenty on this site, he has been mentioned in the boost mobile tournament and in the Adidas Nations Report (http://nbadraft.net/node/1731). This site's purpose is not to find the best current high school basketball players but to project the best future prospects for upcoming drafts. The problem is that Lance Stephenson does not project as a great NBA prospect relative to others in his class. It does not mean that this site dislikes his skills nor does it mean that this site believe that he could never become a higher rated prospect. Personally, while watching him in the Boost Mobile tournament and other games I did not observe the quickness or leaping ability of a John Wall or an OJ Mayo (And I am willing to put money that when Stephenson's combine results come he will not be near the one that O.J Mayo had http://nbadraft.net/2008_nbapredraftcamp_combine.html ).

I would like to mention that I do not enjoy criticizing young amateur athletes because to be even ranked in the top 20 of any class he has risen against all odds just to make this far and has successfully dedicated his time and effort in becoming a GREAT high school basketball player. However, these rankings also project who will be the best NBA talent. Lance, which the site ranks 15th in the class of 09 (http://nbadraft.net/rankings/class_of_2013.html ) is strong and over powering against high school athletes as he gets older that asset will be less significant because the other members of his class will be able to close that difference. At 6 foot 5 inch he does not possess the size or athleticism that is ideal for an NBA 2. OJ Mayo posted a 41 inch leap. For him to develop to even a Brandon Rush type of player he needs to prove that his jumper is legit. O.J has the athleticism and proved in his one year in college that he had a pro level jumper. So at this time his jumper and his athleticism are not at the level of O.J Mayo's so let’s stop that comparison. A Brandon Rush comparison however, may be the key for him to get into the league. Brandon won an NCAA championship and became a leader and dependable shooter at the college level. Nbadraft.net only projects players two years from now and at that time Lance will only be ending his freshman season. It is very doubtful that he will be a first round pick by that time due to his lack of athletic abilities (Not impossible because if he pulls a Stephen Curry shooting spree in the NCAA then he will get noticed). But Lance Stephenson has not become a player with a pure jump shot as of yet and frankly I don’t remember the last NYC high school player that did (Not trying to offend NYC but would love a response).

New York City basketball is considered the Mecca of basketball, but it is also been the Mecca of HYPE. I can remember when people said that Marbury was better than Allen Iverson or how Jamal Tinsley and Sebastien Telfair (remember the ESPN documentary) was going to change the game. How Erik Barkley, Omar Cook and Julius Hodge were great NBA talents. None of which turned out true. Stephon Marbury and Sebastien Telfair come from the same high school as Lance Stephenson (Lincoln) and fairly or unfairly their pasts are going to be remembered when organizations evaluate Lance. Marbury, Tinsley and Ron Artest are the best players from the city in the NBA today, but they have caused their organizations headaches and repeatedly been traded despite their talent. Sebastien Telfair has better athleticism than Lance does but yet cannot start on one of the worst teams in the NBA, the Minnesota Timberwolves, and there wasn’t much interest in the point guard during this restrictive free agency year for him (although his lack of height and decision to take his game pro too early may be the biggest factor why there has been a lack of interest ). He too after being drafted made errors in judgment and caused the organization to have a public image issues. The past stars failures from his high school will likely be another obstacle for him to overcome.

Because of the factor mentioned above I think that it is a fair assessment from the NBADraft.net staff to rank Lance Stephenson only as the 15th best high school senior in NBA talent. Although he will not be ale to ever have the wow quickness of a Monta Ellis or the leaping ability of a Bill Walker, he can prove himself with his game at the college level just like Stephen Curry has done. And hopefully 4-5 years from now he will be ready to contribute and fulfill his NBA dreams and hopefully will not come out before it is too early and become the next Lenny Cooke (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenny_Cooke ). Lenny by the way in high school once said he could beat Kobe Bryant one on one and some of his entourage believed him. Do you think his entourage believes he can beat Kobe today?

I'm sorry but I totally

I'm sorry but I totally disagree with you...I can understand the lack of confidence with nyc players in this decade but I believe lance will break that trend..he has a rare feel for the game, an absolute electrifying cross over which he displayed in both boost mobile tournaments...he absolutely embarassed everyone from this years class..and he totally abused john wall..he overpowered him..toyed with him...etc..and the criticism about his athleticism is unbelievable..he gets above the rim..he's only a senior in high school so his speed and quickness will obviously progress...he is a physical specimen at his age even more then lebron was...and I don't understand why you don't see this...john wall has amazing speed and quickness and athleticims but his jump shot is laughable..considering you watched this years boost mobile event..I also want to add the disrespect for tyreke evans sickens me lol.

Love this site

nyc

I would like to comment on the whole nyc thing..first off its laughable that you say sebastian telfair has more athleticism then lance..I mean that is proposterous..brandon rush? R u kidding me?
Back to the nyc thing...I think it is naive for you to say just because there hasn't been any recent stars from the area..there never will be..I don't think there is a specific area in the world that breeds
Superstars..for example lebron is from akron
D wade is from somewhere in chicago
Brandon roy is from washington..
So I don't think u can base your judement in that specific area
Now a days if you got game
Then you got game.
I like the comparison to ron artest..they are both physical players..but I think lance has a better skill set..
I also have a question
Why do people consider derrick rose to be better then eric gordon?

Believe the Hype!!!!!!!!!

Lance Stephenson and Ricardo Sydney are going to be great NBA players. Wow, I don't believe all the haters against these guys. Talk about NBA ready guys.

I'm glad people are bringing up Lenny Cooke. We all saw this guy take Lebron James in the camps but he got bad "hood" hype. I think that's what the other guys are getting. Lenny cooke was like 6'8", athletic, big, size, everything and he didn't make. I could'nt belive it. I live in California and we had a guy named Schea Cotton years ago with the same numbers that went to our school, won the state title and didn't make it.

Sometimes the NBA has no clue what there doing. They really don't know talent when it hits them plane in their face.

Lance Stephenson

I've only seen him play in person a handful of times...He does not know how to pass the ball, and is very raw. Is he a great player/athlete, yes, but as of now he does not know how to pass the ball at all. One moment stuck out at the Adidas Nations camp, where all the buzz was that he never passed it, but the WHOLE gym is screaming at him to pass/swing the ball and it literally took EVERYONE on the bench screaming it for him to stop, pick up the ball and actually pass it. Then the gym started applauding...Great athlete, but needs some work. Refine his skills, actually study/learn the game and yes he can be an unbelievable player, but has little knowledge of the game of basketball.

Isaiah "Hoopy" Jones

I not sure if you know about Isaiah "Hoopy" Jones but I would like to know if he has been mentioned in ANY prospect columns, considering that he was one of the top sophomores in Illinois for the 07-08 season. It is rumored that he is currently being recruited by Duke, NC, Illinois, and Purdue. I would like to know what you have to say about him.

2010

Normally you don’t see this much talent, in one class, in one town. Ever. But the 2010 class from the Baltimore, MD area is just that good. Headed by Josh Selby one of the top ranked pg in the class. The list is crazy Roscoe Smith, Will Barton, Jordan Latham, C.J. Miles. All of them are ranked in the top 50 in almost every ranking. I'd take that 5 against any other city. Baltimore is where it’s at for the class of 2010.

Lance Stephenson - Is Not Ready

I have been following this kid for a while and he really reminds me of a kid from Flint, MI named Kelvin Torbert. Kelvin Torbert was a "Man" amongst boys. He reminded you of a slash of superman meets Larry Johnson and he was the "next big thing", even projected to be a lottery pick if he would have went to the pros out of high school. But 4 years after playing college ball, the kid did even crack the All-Big Ten first team, never led Michigan State in scoring, and just got totally exposed in college. He was not bigger, stronger, and more athletic than his college peers as he was in high school. That intimidation factor was lost in high school and that is what the writer is trying to display with Lance Stephenson. I was watching clips of the "Born Ready" internet documentary and the first thing I noticed was that this guy is very intimidating to the average high school kid. For example, when the opening credits of the trailer for his show came on and he slams the basketball right in a kids face for fouling him and acts like his is going to kill the kid. Try that in college and you will either get a suspension for the coach or your butted mopped all over the floor by the Senior captain. His intimidation factor will be gone when other players in his class really start hitting the weights in college and his athleticism is really what is very unattractive. He is very flat footed and he gets no lift on his jumper. To me, he looks as if he has a lot of heart and determination at this stage of his career but as far as athleticism and skills needed to be successful in college and the NBA. Not even close. I will go so far to say that if Renardo Sidney get in shape and works out like he is supposed that he has far more potential that Stephenson.

Derrick Favors - Is Not Ready Either

Derrick Favors is very athletic and that is it. Of all the clips that I have seen, he has never done a drop step or any kind of real post moves. It either catch the ball of the rim for the put back, alley opp, or fast break jam. This kid is really going to get exposed at the next level. In addition, I believe the kid is only about 6'7'' or 6'8''. So he is very limited, especially once he gets to college and other kids are eating right and in a good conditioning program. The kid is not a future lottery pick trust me. The Dwight Howard comparisons need to stop, Howard was 6'11" with extremely broad shoulders and some guard skills. Favors can't even dribble. In his defense though, this kid can play some serious defense. Maybe, he can be a future defense stopper, if he can guard small forwards in the league?

are u serious

I think that the scouts on this website ranking lance as 15 is poposterous. I think we as a basketball society are making athleticism a bigger issue than it actually is. Lance has won 3 city chips and 2 state chips in 3 years of play. U can can argue that he plays in the maybe weak psal, but what happens when he plays teams on a national level? he dominates. 2 years ago when st. patrick was ranked number 1 in the countrty and people started saying that dexter strickland was better than lance, what did he do to them? he gave them 42 points while hitting 7 treys. Last year st.anthony who blew out a good american christan squad on espn saw lance give them 28 points and st.anthony narrowly won by 5. For those of you who talk about his attitude being a problem coach hurley commented on the issue and said that he was very well behaved at the time. for the scouts and watchers who claim lance cant shoot u guys are crazy? This kids has great shot mecanics. his jump shot has a very nice ark which will be very usefull once he plays against great athletes on the next level and even when he misses it rims out meaning that he has a very feathery touch. Scout should realize that when someone has as great mechanics as lance does, its no longer a matter of him not being able to shoot, it becomes a mere matter of making and missing shot. His shot is almost never affected regardless of whether he is falling away or is off balance his shot efficiency is never changed. Athletism is only a big issue when a player'
s ball handling is not good and he isnt crafty or strong enough to get off shots. this definitely is not the case with lance. In the nba world Paul piecre has steadly been one of the potent offensive forces over the last decade. In comparison to the likes of Tmac, kobe wade, and lebron, Pierce is not as althletic as them. so why ius he able to compete and alotr of the time dominates them like he did kobe in the finals? Maybe its because athleticism isnt everything. And it is a definite that at this stage in their development Pierce didnt posses the range, strenght, and one on one skills that lance has. Another player who has lack luster leaping ability is the o so smooth score joe johnson. This is just something we should think about before we as spectators start to doubt this kids potential!

Im not attacking u but last

Im not attacking u but last year at lebron james skills academy the same nba scouts said that lance looked like he should've been competing for a spot on the nba roster at the nba summer league rather than a player entering his junior year of high school. Some of the best players in the country was there and he dominated them.Maybe im wrong but arent the same talented high school players that he has dominated with relative ease over the last 4 years, going to be the same players he meets up with in college. Just like their going to grow and get better isnt lance gonna improve on the same skills that hes is usibg now to dominate these great players? just something to think about.

most of the time passing is

most of the time passing is mere matter of keeping your head up when u dribble and whether or not your willing to pass the ball.We all no that lance is an above averaged ball handler with nice crossover and seperation moves. His sophmore year lance averaged 26 pt, 10 ass, and 5 dimes. Have yo ever seen lance highlights of the chip at the garden against boys and girls high? he picked the high apart with pin point dimes,

Renardo Sidney is NOT ready either

Renardo Sidney was just done getting beasted by John Henson over the summer. He picked up a technical foul for pushing him at half court. Renardo Sidney isn't ready. 2009 is a weak class outside of Wall, Favors, Henson, and Stephenson (if he learns how to play more structured ball).

Lance Stephenson

Let's end this whole talk about Lance Stephenson. He is just like Telfair, Kenny Anderson, and Marbury. Overrated. He is big and strong and that's really about it. His quickness is so-so, and he's not a skywalker by any stretch of the imagination. His handle is not great, he fends people off by using his forearm and when he gets to the rim he often clears out with his off arm because he's not going to outjump anybody. Those kinds of things get called at the next level. As far as Pierce and Lance are concerned. Stop it. There is no comparison. He is nowhere near as strong as Paul, nowhere near as skilled as Joe Johnson, also those guys have at least two inches on Lance and don't tell me he's 6-6, he is 6-5 max. I would take Xavier Henry from Oklahoma over him in a heartbeat, so would everybody else in the country.

in response to jpowers

what do u mean hes not as strong as Paul Pierce? if u are talking about right now that would be a stupid way to analyze my statement. Of course he isn't as strong as pierce now hes 18 years old and weighs 220 while Paul Pierce is over 30 years old! Hes a grown ass man it would be ridiculous to compare their strength now. When scouts compare players they compare them on their respective levels as well as their potential to get better . Paul Pierce has decent athleticism however he is a good ball handler(hes not a better ball handler than lance at this stage in their development) an is crafty enough to get his shot off against freak athletes. For some reason scouts everywhere have agreed that he is good enough to be in the top 5 to 10 best players in the nation are we to say that all of these recruiting experts are wrong? If you doubt the validity of my argument read espn's scouting report of lance, check youtube, this kid has a feel for the game the is unbelievable. Tyreke Evans has a similar game to lance however he isn't as strong or does not has as good a shot a lance and Tyreke is almost without a doubt the nation's best freshman.He has major character flaws which are very obvious but once he finds the right coach who is patient and channel all that anger and emotion into productivity the entire world needs to watch out for Mr.born ready!
