BCH's Pre-Summer Top 50

<b>July is the month reputations are created and enforced. BlueChipHoops previews the Top 50 players in the Class of 2002 as we get set to kickoff our July recruiting coverage.</b>

Let the debates begin. Right now it seems as though there are three viable candidates to carry the banner as the best player in the Class of 2002. Certainly a strong case can be made for Shavlik Randolph, Amare Stoudemire and Lenny Cooke as the top player in the class; you wouldn't get any arguments here.

However, recruiting fans love lists so BlueChipHoops now offers a look at its Top 50 (actually 51) players in the Class of 2002 entering the hot July summer camp period. Just a reminder: BCH will bring you comprehensive coverage from Nike, adidas, Peach Jam, Big Time and AAU National Championship.
