Final 2006 West Rankings: Shooting Guards

There's some very good talent at the top of the shooting guard list in the West Coast class of 2006. The top prospect is going to Gonzaga...

The 2006 West Coast shooting guard class isn't full of elite talent,
but it is a deep class in terms of potential Division One prospects.
Bouldin is a combo guard who may play some point in college. He's got an outstanding feel for the game, very good vision and an excellent shot to the stripe. He's also the best passing guard in the west. Westbrook has grown three inches in the last year and he's one of the most improved players in the west. More of a scorer than pure shooter, he's still growing and has a very big upside. He rebounds well for his size and has a chance to be a great defender. Fields has a sweet stroke, with a quick release, and he's not yet physically mature. He's very good at finding gaps in defenses and he can score from anywhere on the court. He might end up the best of the group once he gets bigger and stronger. Harden has a great feel for the game and does a number of things well. He's a very good passer and shoots it well to the stripe. He's also an excellent defender. Christopher is a scorer with deep range and a very quick release. He's got good size and jumps very well.
