Class of 2010 rankings: 11-15
11. Tobias Harris, PF, Glen Head (N.Y.) Lutheran
Arguably the toughest power forward to defend in the country. Can score in low post, great face-up shooter and can attack with dribble. Improved body has been the key.
12. Jelan Kendrick, SF, Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake
Can play three positions and may just be at his most effective when he is playing the point. At 6-6, he’s a match-up problem everywhere he plays. Can score in big bunches, too.
13. Kyrie Irving, PG, Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick (pictured)
Dynamic point guard that can score with the best of them. Dangerous when he is getting to the basket. Very heady player that continues to get better.
14. Dwight Powell, PF, Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy
Ultra skilled big man that just keeps getting better. Strong in the post, skilled facing up and tough inside the paint. His ascension ha been steady and strong.
15. Tristan Thompson, PF, Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep
Long and athletic big man is great around the basket and has improved as a rebounder. Runs the floor like a guard and has quick reflexes inside the paint.
