This year's preseason teams contain the best four point guards, shooting guards, small forwards, power forwards and centers in the high school game. Also, I have an "honorable mention" list of 10 prospects who just made the cut. Check back after the high school season to see which prospects solidified their spots on the official All-American Teams, who slipped off the pedestal, and which recruits worked their way onto the list.
