Stars to Watch

Andrew Wiggins, SF, East

Wiggins is the top prospect in this class, but he’s still torn between four schools to play his college basketball at. He’s narrowed it down to Florida State, Kentucky, Kansas and North Carolina, but isn’t any closer to reaching a decision.

This 6'8" swingman was recently honored as the Gatorade National Boys Basketball Player of the Year for leading Huntington Prep in West Virginia to a 30-3 record.

He averaged 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 2.5 assists during the 2012-13 season and is a likely candidate to earn MVP honors in this event if the East should wind up victorious.

 

Jabari Parker, SF, West

Parker is heading to Duke next season, and now has an unprecedented two Illinois Mr. Basketball awards to display in his dorm room down in Durham.

At 6'8", the Simeon (Chicago) star has elite size, athleticism and talent for the small forward position. He’s going to instantly improve the Blue Devils roster and should lead them on another deep NCAA tournament run in 2014.

During the 2012-13 campaign, Parker put up 18.4 points, 10.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game, becoming only the second player to start for four state championship teams in Illinois.

Keep an eye on this youngster in the McDonald’s All-American Game, as he’s going to have a tough matchup against Wiggins.

 

Underrated Players to Watch

Aaron Gordon, SF, West

This high-flying phenom went off in Monday’s McDonald’s All-American Dunk Contest, throwing down a double-double and 360-degree Eastbay that wowed the judges and everyone in attendance.

However, this prospect is more than just a dunk artist. The 6'8" forward is a top-notch passer and possesses a relentless motor that makes him unstoppable at the high school level.

He has to continue working on his jumper in order to take the next step, but Gordon is well on his way to becoming one of the brightest young stars in the game.

 

Chris Walker, PF, East

Florida Gators fans sure liked what they saw on Monday night, as Chris “Sky” Walker took home the trophy in the Dunk Contest.

Which player will earn MVP honors?

This UF signing outscored the loaded opposition on his four slams, as the 6'10" power forward put his immense athleticism on display each time he had a chance to do so.

Aside from his creative dunking abilities, Walker is great at running the floor, moving the ball around and finishing around the rim. He has to add some strength and mass in order to make the leap, but overall looks to be the next star under coach Billy Donovan down in Gainesville.

Make sure you tune in to check out Walker and all of the other exciting prospects on Wednesday night in the 2013 McDonald’s All-American Game.
