Jrue Holiday, 6-2 SO SG North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall, is the best shooting guard in the west, regardless of class. A big-time scorer, Holiday plays the game very efficiently and doesn't force the action. While most scorers are looking to shoot the ball at every opportunity, Holiday lets the game come to him and he can have an impact even when he isn't scoring. He's got excellent court awareness and he plays unselfishly. Look for Holiday to be recruited by every top program in the country.
While Jrue is the better prospect at this time, his brother Justin Holiday, a 6-5 junior small forward, is also a terrific player. Justin is incredibly active and he's a great defensive player. He's on the thin side right now, but he should fill out nicely and end up a high major prospect himself.
Patrick Christopher, a 6-3 senior shooting guard from Compton (Calif.) Dominguez, recently opened up his commitment after an early verbal to Cal. Christopher showed off his deep range, and quick release, last night with Washington's Cameron Dollar watching the action.
Brad Sweezy, a 6-6 senior power forward from Huntington Beach (Calif.) Ocean View, was impressive in the one game we saw. He's a big-time leaper and showed off a nice stroke from three-point range.
Chris Gweth, 6-0 SR SG Hillsboro (Ore.) High, has been impressive every time we've seen him in the last couple months. He's always under control, he knocks down shots and he's got an outstanding feel for the game. We think he's a terrific prospect at the low major level and worth a look for some mid majors.
