1.Bradley Beal Florida Fr. 6’4” – I really like this kid’s game; I think he might be the best freshman in this class. Beal can flat out shoot the basketball that’s what he is best at. His stroke is real smooth; he has a quick release. He has excellent range on his shot. Beal is not just a shooter; he can get to the rim, and finish with his strength. He is a very versatile scorer. Another thing I like about Beal is that he is a tough player with very high basketball IQ. Beal needs to improve his ball handling as well as his passing ability. He could also work a little of his defense.
2.Jeremy Lamb UConn Soph. 6’6”– Lamb emerged as a true superstar; a year ago after he and Kemba Walker led UConn to the national title. Lamb has very good size and length for a shooting guard, but he really needs to add some weight. Lamb is a great athlete with his quickness and jumping ability. He is also an excellent an aggressive defender. One word to describe his offensive game is smooth...
