Scout.com spent the entire month of July on the road evaluating prospects. With the month behind us, we put together a list of 10 guys that raised their play during both evaluation periods.
Class of 2010 Summer Risers
– PF / #29 overall – Dix Hills (N.Y.) H.H. Hills West
Made the biggest jump of any player rated in the Top 30. After addressing his conditioning he toned up his body and his game expanded. Turned in an all-american summer and had the gyms buzzing.
Schools Involved: Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Connecticut, Kentucky Syracuse, Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Louisville, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.
Almost under the radar, Desrosiers, a 6-foot-10, 205-pound big man, was dominant in Vegas. Hard working, skilled big man has legit size and went from prospect to player in the latter stages of his summer basketball journey.
Schools Involved: Wake Forest, Syracuse, Arizona State, Marquette, Stanford, Providence and Georgia Tech
The son of a former college player, Lamb rocked the Peach Jam where his blowup came at the expense of regional mid-majors. A future Top 100 player, we love our late bloomers and he qualifies! Shooting is his forte, but he's not bad going to the rim either.
Schools Involved Kentucky, Texas, Marquette, Georgia, Clemson, Connecticut, Alabama and Xavier
