Class of 2007 Top 25 Prospects

This week we start our basketball coverage with a look at Arizona's Top 25 Prospects Class of 2007. Today 1-5. Tuesday 6-10. Also, the surprise of the summer, Maurice Jackson, a 6-2 guard from Gilbert High School begins our basketball coverage for the 2006-2007 season with our Top Basketball Prospects.  We will be covering 1-25 Class of 2007 over the next week with evaluations, college lists and exclusive coverage.


Following the summer evaluation period, we have new faces breaking through into the top 25.


The Top Five 2007 Division I Prospects


  1. Jerryd Bayless, a 6-3 shooting guard from St. Mary's High School in Phoenix.  A last minute switch to EBO from the Arizona Magic indicates a Texas Longhorn future for this top 10 player nationally. Washington, GeorgiaTech, Kansas and Arizona round out his top five.
  2. Zane Johnson, 6-5 SR SF/SG Phoenix (Ariz.) Thunderbird High School in Phoenix.  A recent University of Arizona commit has proven over the last 5 months he is an elite West Coast prospect.  Johnson used to be much easier to defend, when he couldn't put the ball on the floor. But he's improved in that area and now he's able to create his own shot or penetrate and make plays in the lane. 
  3. Harper Kamp, 6-7 SR C/PF Mesa (Ariz.) Mountain View High School.  Kamp is headed to California (Pac 10) after a strong Spring showing.  Inured this past summer, Kamp looks to bounce back for the Toro's and lead them to another State Title.
  4. Maurice Jackson, 6-2 SR SG/PG Phoenix (Ariz) Gilbert High School.  Jackson had an excellent summer and he's one of the hotter names at the mid to upper mid major level. He plays point guard for the Arizona Rage, but we think he's more of a two at this point. He's got a great basketball body and he's a good, but not exceptional, athlete. He's really improved his ability to put the ball on the floor, though, and there's a chance he plays some one in college. THE SURPRISE OF THE SUMMER!
  5. Ty Abbott, 6-4 SR  G Phoenix (Ariz) Desert Vista High School  Abbott has elevated his stock into one of the top guards in the West.  He has good range on his shot.  Long armed defender who attacks the glass in traffic.  Intensity for a full 32 minutes could make him the steal of Arizona come the spring signing period.  A number of Mid Major schools have him on their radar.

Coming Tuesday, our look at Prospects 6-10 in the Class of 2007!
