Class of 2010 rankings: 16-20

Our unveiling of the class of 2010 continues, this time with 16 to 20. Three of the best scoring guards and two of the most difficult power forwards to defend in the nation make the cut.

16. Deshaun Thomas, PF, Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers

Big, strong combo forward that should shine in Big Ten play. Can score inside and out. Could become a big-time physical defender, too.


17. Doron Lamb, SG, Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy

Big time scorer in the backcourt. Master of the floater. Jump shot becoming much more reliable from deep. One of the most clutch players in the class.

18. Dion Waiters, PG/SG, Burlington (N.J.) Life Center Academy

One of the best in the country at getting to the basket. Absolutely a beast to defend because of his strength with the ball. Big-time winner, too.


19. Josh Selby, SG, Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton

Enigmatic scorer. Crazy shot selection and a little too inconsistent. But when he’s on, he’s special. The long-armed guard is the best streaky scorer in the nation.

20. Patric Young, PF, Jacksonville (Fla.) Paxon School (pictured)

Major motor. Major body. Major rebounder/dunker. Lacks offensive skill set right now but give him two/three years in college, Young could be shaking hands with David Stern.
