Scout.com spent the summer traveling the camp and AAU circuit. We've seen the top prospects and the best match ups from coast-to-coast. Now it's time to unveil our All-Summer Teams.
All-Summer 1st Team
– PG / #7 overall – Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick - 2010
The PG spot was a tough choice because there are so many quality options, but what Irving did in July, specifically in Orlando is hard to top. Irving dismantled arguably the top two teams – All-Ohio
Red & Team Final – in summer basketball basically by himself. He's got all the tools to be a big-time floor general at the next level, as he's got a terrific feel, knows how to run a team and has exceptional ball-handling and vision.
Schools Involved: Duke, Indiana, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Seton Hall, UConn and Texas A&M.
– SG / #9 overall – Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster - 2010
Exploding for a 40-point game is just one of the many things Barton was able to accomplish this summer. The Memphis
commit is one of the more unselfish two guards in the 2010 class, and he brings a competitive fire and energy every time he touches the floor. Barton has a complete game where he's capable of attacking the rim or stepping out for deep jumpers.
With the amount of high-level players participating in the Nike Peach Jam, it's tough to lead the event in scoring, but Barnes, a 6-foot-7 wing, did just that, averaging just under 26 points a game. The nation's top prospect is a tireless worker that is consistent with his efforts. His jump shot is quickly becoming his biggest weapon, as it's pure well past the three-point line.
Schools Involved: Duke, Kansas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Iowa State and North Carolina.
Easily the most improved player in the country is this Dix Hills (N.Y.) Half Hollows standout. Harris, a 6-foot-8 forward, made big changes to his body and worked his body fat percentage to below eight percent. At the King City Classic, coaches were floored by his skill set and ability to play inside and out. He kept it up at Peach Jam and in Orlando and solidified himself as a near lock for the McDonald's All-American game.
Schools Involved: Kentucky, Syracuse, St. John's, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Maryland, Louisville, Georgia Tech and UConn.
