2010 Intro: Jayvaughn Pinkston

Although Doron Lamb is the leading scorer for Bishop Loughlin, Jayvaughn Pinkston plays a big role for B.L. as well and he's already picking up college interest.

Although some coaches are still trying to finalize their 2008 classes and others are evaluating possible prospects for the 2009 class, it's never too early for coaches to take a peak at what the sophomore class has to offer.

One 2010 prospects that is already receiving attention is Jayvaughn Pinkston, of Brooklyn (N.Y.) Bishop Loughlin. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound forward is having a solid sophomore season, according to Bishop Loughlin coach Khalid Greene.

"He's doing OK," Greene said. "Defensively I think he's made a better adjustment than he did last year. Jayvaughn stepped it up towards the middle or the end [of the season] and I can see that progress coming right now."

"He had a good 6th, 7th and 8th grade circuit as far as playing AAU and that's where he got his name. Now he's trying to get some credibility within the high school ranks.

Despite playing power forward for Bishop Loughlin, the coaches see him as a possible three-man in college.

"He plays the four for us," he said. "I see him as a three down the road in college. Right now he's a four for us, but he can put it on the floor, he can shoot it and he has a mid-range jump shot. I think he can play the three in college."

The early contenders for Pinkston are St. John's, Louisville and Connecticut.
