Armon JohnsonArmon Johnson2010 Positional Rankings

With size, speed and athleticism, Nevada's Armon Johnson has what few point guards on the college level possess. And with such a shallow pool of talent following likely #1 pick John Wall at the point guard position, Johnson could potentially look to leave this year and find a spot in the first round.

Johnson moves all the way up to #3 on our list of point guards in our most recent update.

While he's a quality decision maker and floor general, his real strength lies in creating offense for himself off the dribble. He's got tremendous speed for a 6-3 point guard and an extra gear to blow by defenders and get to the rim. he's also got exceptional ball handling ability and a pretty left handed shot off the dribble.

Full scouting report on Johnson.

Nevada is not known for being a powerhouse basketball school, but in recent years they have been putting out a steady stream of NBA talent. Beginning with Kirk Snyder, Nick Fazekas, Ramon Sessions and JaVale McGee, and now Johnson and sophomore Luke Babbitt continue that trend.

Another West Coast sleeper is Fresno State freshman bigman Greg Smith. After going to Fresno, Some scouts have come away saying that they think Smith, and not Paul George or Sylvester Seay, is the best prospect at Fresno State.

Smith's huge frame at such a young age (still 18) combined with his quick post moves and solid explosiveness make him a highly intriguing prospect. He's also a player with a high motor and willingness to be coached.

While he figures to return for his sophomore year, he has moved up to #9 on the power forward rankings.

The Crane Tech legend,

The Crane Tech legend, Sherron Collins, should be number two on the positional rankings. His toughness overshadows Kemba Walker ability to pass.
