Top 30 Rising Juniors

The Class of 2003 is much stronger than this year's group of seniors-to-be and selecting the best player in the class was not a difficult task. LaBron James is so good he might be the best among all high school players. In fact, James even said he might declare for the NBA draft before finishing high school. The rest of our Top 30 were not so easy to select.
