Hawkins Has a Leader

The #5 junior small forward on the west coast, Justin Hawkins of Lakewood Mayfair, has a definite leader that he will visit officially soon...

Justin Hawkins, 6-6 JR SF, Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair, had a good season, averaging 17 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals a game, while being selected to the All CIF III-AA First Team.

Currently the #5-ranked small forward in the west coast junior class, Hawkins is getting some serious, early recruiting attention from many schools.

Perhaps being the most aggressive early is none other than Arizona. Arizona coaches attended several games this season and have called Mayfair consistently over the last several months.

Hawkins has a plan to take his official visit to Arizona soon (remember: new rules allow juniors to take their official visits starting in January).

With Hawkins's favorite school being Arizona, it could be a foregone conclusion. But Hawkins's top five include USC, Oregon, Wake Forest and Connecticut.

Hawkins will play with Rockfish this spring and summer, while also attending the adidas ABCD camp in July. He said he has a 3.0 GPA and has scored a 990 on his SAT.
