High School Basketball Class of 2016: Freshmen Watch List!!!
Let me start out by saying this has been possibly the CRAZIEST NBA off-season in quite sometime. I'd like to think I know my NBA pretty well, and I definitely have lost track of where some players have landed. Dudes have been amnestied left n right I'm loosing my mind (lol). Also...NBATV has done a pretty good job with broadcasting all the summer league games...which has been straight. I could do without some of the commentating, but beggers can't be choosers. Can't forget Team USA which is always fun to watch. Real quick...my take on the Dream Team vs the Current USA sqaud in a 7 game series...Dream Team in 6. (I say 6 because this current team does have the younger legs, besides Kobe of course. If all of the Dream Team was in their prime though...4 game sweep maybe???
Back to the reason why I posted...The Class of 2016 Freshmen Watch List. Some of you may think it's too early to start tracking thses players...and you may be right...but even NBA Draft.Net named one of the players an honorable mention for future NBA drafts...7'0'' Thon Maker...so there are definitely some nice incoming freshmen worth paying attention to.
There are 10 players chosen for PG, SG, SF, & PF/C (power forwards & centers are lumped into one position). After a quick feature on each player, there are 15 honorable mentions for each position as well (100 players total). There are videos for basically all of the players. Some of the videos may be outdated though, so it might not do their games justice. I am well aware these players are still growing, so labeling them by position was more for organization than anything.

I don't know if any of these players will live up to the hype or not, but last year I did a feature on only 10 incoming freshmen from the Class of 2015...and 8 of them made ESPN's Top 25 a couple months ago. In my opinion...the Class of 2016 has a chance to be pretty special.
Good spread. Saw a few future Tar Heels in there! Danny Greens little brother is a legacy so sign him up! Dibbs on Seventh Woods too!
It's good to see my boy josh on there but you did say he plays for Texas elite but Joshua parson just joined my aau team for 14u age group which is the urban dfw elite
Oh yeah and Eron Gordon is not that good ... He gets overhyped because his brother is in the nba but we shut him down while just playin a normal man to man defense without paying any special attention to him
Shout out to my young dude Justin Jakson!
my bro justin jackson will get drafted in 2017, letss gooo
Y'all know him?
