Russell Westbrook, 6-2 SR SG/PG Lawndale (Calif.) Leuzinger. He's more of a two than a one, but he handles the ball well enough that he could play some point guard in college. He's got a great frame – excellent shoulders and length – with big feet and a young face. In other words, he might not be done yet physically. More of a scorer than a shooter, Westbrook can finish inside against size, as well as knock down the three. He's a good athlete, with the ability to defend either guard position. He's now second on our shooting guard list, trailing only Matt Bouldin. A lot of high major programs have missed the boat on this kid.
Landry Fields, 6-5 SR SG Los Alamitos (Calif.) High. Like Westbrook, Fields is also more than just a shooter. He moves very well without the ball and is adept at finding gaps in defenses. He's still very immature physically – body hasn't filled out yet – and he's all legs at this point. He may need a redshirt year when he gets to college, but he's a definite high major prospect.
Quinton Watkins, 6-4 JR SG Compton (Calif.) Dominguez. Watkins has long had the kind of body and athleticism that gets coaches excited, but his shot has been a question mark. In the game we saw earlier this week, Watkins knocked down several jumpers and looked good doing it. If he can shoot it consistently, he's a high major prospect.
D.J. Gay, 5-11 JR PG Sun Valley (Calif.) Poly. More of a scoring lead guard than a true point, Gay has a solid stroke with range, as well as the ability to penetrate. He's got a sturdy frame, with fairly good quickness. Feet are just ok – not great laterally – but he can score and should get plenty of looks at the mid major level.
Aaron Moore, 6-6 FR PF Compton (Calif.) Dominguez. Athletic young post with very good feet and hands. He's still learning the game, but he moves well and can score around the basket. With continued development, a potential high major prospect.
Chris Cunningham, 6-6 FR C Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch. Good-sized young post with a young face and some skills. Pretty good hands, moves fairly well for a young big. If he grows a couple inches, he could be very interesting in a few years.
Wendell Wright, 6-4 SO SF/SG Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair. Long and lean wing with some upside. Shot is a question mark, but he's got potential.
