2011 rankings: 16-20
16. Myck Kabongo, PG, Newark (N.J.) St. Benedict's – Jet quick point guard that excels at passing, shooting, scoring and ball-handling. One of the elite guards in the class and his résumé is stocked deep with wins. He’ll be the best point guard to play for Rick Barnes since D.J. Augustin.
COMMITTED TO TEXAS
17. Branden Dawson, SF, Gary (Ind.) Lew Wallace – Great physical specimen that has developed into a fine wing prospect. His ceiling is incredibly high and his work ethic could justify this lofty status. The 6-foot-5 wing is just scratching the surface on his potential.
18. Kentavious Caldwell, SG, Greenville (Ga.) High School (pictured) – The multi-skilled guard can play three positions in the backcourt and can shine as a passer, scorer, slasher, rebounder and defender. Once his jumper becomes reliable, he could be one of the scariest guards in the country.
19. P.J. Hairston, SG, Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley – Big time scorer and very good from deep. Has big, strong frame that he uses well to power through defenders. Think Mitch Richmond. Hairston should score a lot of points during his career in Chapel Hill.
COMMITTED TO NORTH CAROLINA
20. Angelo Chol, PF, San Diego (Calif.) Hoover – Big bodied forward is a brute on the low blocks and he uses his size quite well. The lefty is solid in the post as a scorer and rebounder. He’s developing into a fine defensive player, too.
