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.


Past rankings


  1. This is a solid list Justin. Tobias Harris has elevated himself to a Top 10 caliber guy with his player over the summer. He can do it all from the forward spot.


  2. thanks for the post. tobias looks great physically and could be the most difficult PF to guard in the nation. big time skill inside and out. great summer for the big man. his reward? offers from some of the premiere programs in the land. that's what it is all about.

  3. Harris had the offers, he should be top ten at least. Every event he has performed this summer.
