2012 Rankings

By no means have I seen enough of the 2012 class to be extremely confident in my rankings. I've tried to stick with guys I have seen at least 4 or 5 times against good competition. I did add Gary Harris because everyone I respect raves about him although I have not seen him myself. Most of the guys I have seen from the class are from the top AAU teams.

2012 Overall Rankings

1. A.J. Hammons 6’10 C Carmel H Runs well, rebounds aggressively, slight mean streak with is very good for big men. Weakness- conditioning right now.
2. Ron Patterson 6’4 SG Broad Ripple H Athletic as you can get for this age, good shooter…set and off the dribble, solid defender. Weakness-would like him to tighten up his handles.
3. Gary Harris 6’2 PG Hamilton Southeastern H Haven’t seen, but everyone I talk to that I respect say he is very, very good.
4. Austin Burgett 6’7 SF Avon H- Good shooter, ample ball handling skills, solid athlete. Weakness-Assertiveness…he is aggressive when he gets the ball but doesn’t demand the ball when he needs to sometimes.
5. Jeremy Hollowell 6’7 SF Lawrence Central H- Extremely long, good shooter from distance, drives the ball well. Weakness-struggles to finish at the rim at times…strength could fix that.
6. D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera 6’2 PG North Central M+ Crafty, strong as a bull, smart with the ball. Weakness-Needs to work on range and has been improving that.
7. Edward Seay 6’8 C Merrillville M+ Long, active in the post. Weakness-raw post skills
8. Yogi Ferrell 5’11 PG Park Tudor M+ Quick, very good with the ball i.e. change of pace, decision making. Weakness- outside shooting, but improving of late.
9. Rafael Davis 6’5 SF Fort Wayne South M Shooter, good length, strong for age. Weakness-early maturer
10. Kellon Thomas 5’11 PG Southport M Leader, good decision maker, solid shooter, strong, finishes well in the lane. Weakness- height.
11. Dejuan Marrero 6’6 SF Bowman M Solid athlete but not a freak, good rebounder. Weakness-perimeter skills if he is done growing.
12. Brent Calhoun 6’7 C Warren Central M Lefty (I love lefty post players), good shot blocker, developing jump hook. Weakness- very raw.
13. Rhett Smith 6’5 SF Sullivan M True inside/outside player, good post moves, drives the ball well. Weakness-no true college position yet.
14. Jared Drew 6’4 SF Lawrence Central L+ Solid athlete, long, gets to the rim easily. Weakness-shot selection
15. Nick Osborne 6’6 PF Muncie Central Haven't seen him because injuries early in the spring held him out of games, but hear good things about him.
