Top 2012 Bball Prospects from Texas

1

Great classes in 2010 and 2011, is there more to come from home-grown talent in 2012? "The top lead guards in this class both come from the talent-rich state of Texas: No. 7 J-Mychal Reese (Bryan, Texas) and No. 8 L.J. Rose. The two show differing approaches to the position. Reese is an excellent scorer who takes the ball to the basket. He is extremely quick with the ball and can knock down open 3s. Rose, on the other hand, is a pass-first point guard. He has a tremendous feel for the game and makes his teammates better." "Holding strong at the third spot, Isaiah Austin (Mansfield, Texas) is a different type of player than Drummond and Coleman. The top two players in the class are more physically imposing. Austin is more of a versatile and wiry athlete. Austin is still polishing his back-to-the basket skills, so most of his points come on short jumpers and putbacks. Defensively, the 6-11 Austin can dominate the paint as well as any player in the class."
