And there may be a surprise or two!</p>

#8    Tulane


6'8    Dan Fitzgerald

6'2   Vincent Camper

6'4    Chris Moore

6'2    Troy Aaron

6'8    Kory Castine


Class Breakdown:  Fitzgerald, one of the top players in the state of Minnesota, is an excellent shooter and at 6'8 only needs to add weight and strength to have an impact for the Green Wave.  Aaron was the class AAA player of the year in the state of Louisiana as a junior and should be an excellent backcourt player for Coach Shawn Finney.  Moore is an excellent shooter who is prepping at Maine Central Institute this season and should provide immediate help on the wing next season.  Camper, a 6'2 point guard, is considered one of the top 5 players in the state of Mississippi.  He finished second in assists at the 2002 ABCD Adidas Camp and led the New Orleans Jazz to the semifinals of the Adidas Big Time in July.  Castine is a local big man who could develop into a productive low post player in the future.



#9    Texas Christian


6'4    Blake Adams

6'9    Art Pierce

6'4    Aaron Curtis


Class Breakdown:  Adams is a fine catch for first year Coach Neil Dougherty.  He is an excellent shooter and a good athlete and should compliment athletic TCU freshman forward Chudi Chinweze on the wing and be an early contributor in Fort Worth.  Curtis, a JUCO All American at Lon Morris, will provide scoring and rebounding on the wing.  Pierce, a forward/center from Texas, led his high school team to the TAPPS 4A championship last season.


#10   UAB


6'5    Ronnell Taylor

6'5    Donnell Taylor


Class Breakdown:  First year head coach Mike Anderson landed these two athletic, wing players from the Florida JUCO ranks.  If you haven't figured it out, the Taylor's are twins.  Looks like they might provide double trouble for C-USA foes the next couple seasons.


#11   South Florida
