2004 Shooting Guards

The 2004 class is talented overall, but especially among its shooting guards. There is one prospect already committed to Duke, DeMarcus Nelson, and others like Curtis Allen, Bryce Taylor and Thomas Woods that could all be elite-level recruits...

We won't rank the 2004 class until after July, as there are simply too many players that we haven't had a good look at yet. Instead, we're listing ten of the top players at each position (in no particular order), along with other players of note. Keep in mind that this is a rough list and it will undoubtedly change dramatically by the end of July.

DeMarcus Nelson, 6-2 Vallejo (Calif.) High
Curtis Allen, 6-4 Rolling Hills (Calif.) Rolling Hills Prep
