West Coast 2010 Top Players

The West Coast class of 2010 looks to be a bit light, at this point, on elite talent. There are a few players, however, that appear to have potential as top prospects, including Jeremy Tyler, Kendall Williams and Josh Smith, among others...

We won't rank the West Coast 2010 class until after next July, but
we do have an initial list of some top players, as well as others to
watch. The small forward spot is the one position where we haven't
put anyone in the top category, as no player has really stood out
yet in that group.

Obviously, these players all have a long way to go yet, with three
full years of high school to play. So these lists are very preliminary
in nature and we have undoubtedly overlooked some good young players. We will be adding players as we see them and this list
will no doubt look dramatically different a year from now.
