Class of 2010 shooting guard scouting report

MORE: 2010 Point Guards scouting report

Who's the best of the best among the Class of 2010 shooting guards? We break down the players in four categories.

SHOOTING GUARDS
BEST RANGE
1) J.T. Terrell
High School: Charlotte (N.C.) West Charlotte
College choice: Wake Forest
Buzz: Terrell has never seen a shot he didn't like, and that means he'll shoot it from almost anywhere inside half court.

2) Reggie Bullock
High School: Kinston (N.C.) Kinston
College choice: North Carolina
Buzz: At a healthy 6 feet 6, Bullock has a nearly pure stroke that can stretch the defense well beyond the three-point line.
3) Dion Waiters
High School: Burlington (N.J.) Life Center Academy
College choice: Syracuse
Buzz: Waiters loves to use the high ball screen, and if the defender goes under the screen, he is more than happy to pull from deep.
4) Chris Crawford
High School: Memphis Sheffield
College choice: Memphis
Buzz: Crawford might just challenge Vanderbilt's John Jenkins as the best shooter in the state of Tennessee.
5) Terrence Ross
High School: Portland (Ore.) Jefferson
College choice: Undecided
Buzz: Cut from the same mold as Reggie Bullock, Ross can shoot with range and knock it down coming off screens.
BEST DEFENDER
1) Rickey Scott
High School: Irving (Texas) Macarthur School
College choice: Arkansas
Buzz: Name the perimeter position that needs to be stymied, and Scott, who is a natural defender, will be up for the challenge.

2) K.T. Harrell
High School: Montgomery (Ala.) Brewbaker Tech Magnet
College choice: Virginia
Buzz: Harrell is physical and competitive. Points do not come easily against him.
3) Tyler Lamb
High School: Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei
College choice: UCLA
Buzz: Lamb has built a reputation for himself as one of the top defenders in the country. Howland will definitely put him to work next year.
4) Mardracus Wade
High School: Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military Academy
College choice: Arkansas
Buzz: Full of passion for the task and blessed with natural defensive ability, Wade will give SEC guards headaches.
5) Trey Zeigler
High School: Mount Pleasant (Mich.) Mount Pleasant
College choice: Undecided
Buzz: The mark of Zeigler's game is that it is of a complete nature, not just on the offensive end but on the defensive end as well.
BEST OFFENSIVE PLAYER
1) Will Barton
High School: Wolfboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy
College choice: Memphis
Buzz: Barton is an electric offensive player with his ability to break the defense down off the dribble and score or dish.

2) J.T. Terrell
High School: Charlotte (N.C.) West Charlotte
College choice: Wake Forest
Buzz: Some have a distaste for his gunning style. Others are enamored with his offensive prowess. Regardless, Terrell can put up points with the best in this class.
3) Doron Lamb
High School: Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy
College choice: Undecided
Buzz: His midrange game is as good as it gets, and Lamb has a high-level feel for scoring.
4) Dion Waiters
High School: Burlington (N.J.) Life Center Academy
College choice: Syracuse
Buzz: Playing primarily as a point guard for his travel team, Waiters has always been one of the toughest perimeter players to guard in his class.
5) Reggie Bullock
High School: Kinston (N.C.) Kinston
College choice: North Carolina
Buzz: Besides his reliable deep shooting range, Bullock also can score attacking the basket in transition and by posting up.
BEST BALL HANDLER
1) Dion Waiters
High School: Burlington (N.J.) Life Center Academy
College choice: Syracuse
Buzz: Don't be surprised if Waiters runs a lot of point for Syracuse. He is that good with the ball.


2) Will Barton
High School: Wolfboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy
College choice: Memphis
Buzz: Barton has great command of his ball skills, and good things almost always happen when he attacks on the dribble.
3) Doron Lamb
High School: Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy
College choice: Undecided
Buzz: His scoring ability is just too valuable to make him a primary ball handler, but Lamb handles the ball as well as most point guards.
4) Trae Golden
High School: Powder Springs (Ga.) Mceachern
College choice: Tennessee
Buzz: Some argue that Golden is a point guard and that very well may be the position he works into at Tennessee.
5) K.T. Harrell
High School: Montgomery (Ala.) Brewbaker Tech Magnet
College choice: Virginia
Buzz: Sturdy physically and solid with the basketball, Harrell gets the ball where it needs to be and makes plays.
