From the SI All-American Player of the Year to potential NBA players next season, we examine the best uncommitted seniors still on the board heading into the NCAA's spring signing period, which kicks off on April 15.
Here are the best of the rest:
Jalen Green, Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.), CG
Schools of Interest: Memphis, Auburn, Fresno State, Oregon
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: The SI All-American Player of the Year is a walking human highlight reel once he reaches the lane. At 6-foot-5, Green gets wherever he wants on the court, scores efficiently on all three levels and plays with the chip of an unranked player dead-set on making a name for himself. That's a dangerous combination. Green is also considering playing professionally overseas for a year as opposed to playing in college.
Greg Brown, Vandegrift (Austin, Texas), F
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: The SI All-American first-teamer is arguably the best finisher in high school basketball, with a high-wire act that will keep him in contention for SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays every week next season. At 6-foot-8, Brown is positionless with a high motor and a versatile skill set that enables him to dominate on both ends of the floor.
Ziaire Williams, Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.), SF
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: Williams is a dominant wing who scores on all three levels with the speed and agility to maneuver wherever he wants on the floor. At 6-foot-7, Williams has great size and length and guards multiple positions effectively on the floor.
Josh Christopher, Mayfair (Lakewood, Calif.), SG
Schools of Interest: Missouri, Arizona State, UCLA, Michigan
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: The SI All-American combines elite athleticism with a ferocious competitive edge, which enables him to dominate offensively. A 6-foot-5 guard, Christopher is a gifted scorer whose first step and high-wire act make him must-see TV.
Makur Maker, Pacific Academy (Irvine, Calif.), C
Schools of Interest: USC, Howard, Oregon, Alabama
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: At 6-foot-11, Maker is super skilled with great footwork and mobility on both ends of the floor. His efficient perimeter shot makes him a tough out for most bigs and his motor translates into domination on the glass. Maker was deemed eligible for the NBA draft and is expected to apply for early entry.
Tyrin Lawrence, Sunrise Christian (Bel Aire, Kan.), CG
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: Lawrence is a bouncy scoring guard who can’t be stopped going to the basket. A 6-foot-4 southpaw, he has an efficient perimeter jump shot but thrives on the drive, breaking down defenders off the dribble and maneuvering his way to strong finishes at the basket.
UPDATE: Lawrence committed to Vanderbilt on Thursday, explaining why in a blog for SI All-American.
Donovan Williams, North Star (Lincoln, Neb.), SG
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: Williams has great size (6-foot-5) coupled with elite scoring ability on all three levels. He also thrives as a playmaker and is athletic enough to defend multiple positions.
Kyree Walker, Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix, Ariz.), SG
Schools of Interest: Memphis, Arkansas, Arizona State, Arizona, Kansas
Why He’s a Hot Commodity: Walker sat out his senior season but was once considered to be one of the top 10–15 players in the class. The one-time Arizona State commit is a bouncy scoring guard whose shiftiness with the ball enables him to dominate the opposition. His combination of size (6-foot-6), athleticism and skill has him pondering college or taking the professional overseas route before entering the NBA draft next year.
