The SLAM Fresh 25 – 2010

These youngsters are soon to be the must-know names in hoops…why not learn them now?

By Aggrey Sam

The way college basketball recruiting is going these days, most of the top players in the senior class are already off the board by the beginning of their 12th-grade year, if not before their actual season. Therefore, programs must concentrate on the junior class even prior to the mad scramble that occurs the following summer. Here’s an early look at the best of this bunch. To see Aggrey’s rankings for the class of ’09, click here.

    Sike, I’m not really that hostile/sensitive. Think what y’all want. Oh, and since I’ve never said it…first!

    well since these dudes are all about my age, i have no opionon.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    Aggrey, where is that dude called DeVontae Palmer? I heard that cat is one of the rawest juniors out in Mississippi. He’s a f*cking beast. I should know, I’m his number one fan. Next Chris Paul. heard it here first.

    DP join the revoution!

    I’m going to have to talk to DeVontae Palmer tonight at the football game. He is so hard to get in touch with. But he just text me that he just got finished giving some dudes the business at the gym and tonight he is going to be fresh with his LRG on at the game and the after party afterwards. Just an all around cool mothaf*cker!

  • B. Long

    My son is 1 yr. old and he just threw down a nasty two handed dunk on his fischer-price goal. Caden Carter Long-holding down that number one spot in 2025!

    damm son. Well if i have kids (i dont they arent mine) they will be great just like me

  • balla

    i would say i’m the best but 4real look up chad adams and xavier blount… sante fe Highlands high out of the NM.

  • Gosh, I love low IQ thugs

    I like this list a lot better than your 09 one, but Reggie Bullock deserves to be on the list.

  • http://slamonline.com a. sam

    DP: What school do you play for in Mississippi?
    Gosh: Never saw him play, except on tape.

  • http://slamonline.com a. sam

    balla: I’ll do the research. Let me know what kinda season they have and what next summer’s looking like for those two.

  • btown

    wats ure thoughts on jt terrell? interested in whether u think his stock has dropped or not over the summer…he also seems a lil streaky at times…at the same time dude can fill it up when he catches fire.

  • Gosh, I love low IQ thugs


    The other major one to definitely check out is Kentucky commit Dom Ferguson, a Lamar Odum type from Lawerence North HS (Greg Oden, Mike Conley, etc.) in Indianapolis and Indiana SYF on the AAU side.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    DP goes to North West Rankin High School down the old ‘Sipi Aggrey. I know this because I stalk him.

  • tinchek

    JOSH SMITH! i bet he’ll go to atlanta

  • http://www.nba.com/celtics/ Moose

    I was about to type that tinchek. And he has good timing on D.

  • Gosh, I love low IQ thugs

    Ty Thornton and Josh Hairston committed today.
    That’s now 11 of the top 25.

  • Cj

    Harrison Barnes should be higher on the list along with Josh Selby but the rest isn’t bad.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com DP

    DeVontae might be out with an injury after the after party friday night. Some dudes from the other school wanted to box and Vontae was down with it. Smashed dude in the mouth, but got jumped from behind. ankle rolled…damn I hate drunk people at football games.

  • This List is Bunk

    No Dominique Ferguson on this list? I’d love to talk to the ‘scout’ that doesn’t think Ferg is a top 25 player.

  • matt(ballislife

    what!!! j tyler at 7!! haha, come on now, he should be numero uno!

  • real deal

    tobias harris is the truth. he and j.tyler were in ny this past winter in a tournament and TH was the best player in the whole thing. he should be working out with Tim Grover right now so he can be the best prospect of 2011 draft

  • Scoutman04

    Dominique Ferguson is easily one of the top players in 2010 and has a shot to be ranked 1 overall. His upside is ridiculous.

  • lamo

    were is toni chenault?

  • Lil memphis

    that guy reggie elkins from brighton,tn-he’s one of the coldest juniors in tn,come check him out!

  • J-C

    Amazing that Tony Chennault from N-G in Philly isn’t on this list. How can you go from #1 in 8th grade, transform into an unselfish PG that leads by example on and off the court and have your “ranking” suffer. The kid does anything that is asked of him and will continue to rise to new levels at Wake.

  • Brandon


  • Apollo Moses

    Eric Smith pg Mullins S.C. already committed to play for University of South Carolina.

  • bob

  • jamie peterson

  • Jonathan Henderson


    Casey Prather, 2010 (who was in your top 25) scored 41pts, 16rebs, 5 stls against TNs best team in a close loss. Casey is averaging 26.5 pts and 13rebs so far though 4 games.

  • the know it all

    taran buie….are you serious…this has got to be a joke

  • http://www.slamonline.com Prime Preps

    Isaac Ryals, a 6’1 combo guard(and will still add inches)out of the class of 2010 should and will make your list. Brings a Derrick Rose,Jerryd Bayless,Brandon Roy type of flare to his game. So keep your eyes opening and ears unlocked for this kid.
