Each week, Rivals.com recruiting analysts Jerry Meyer and Eric Bossi break down the top 10 in a different category. This week, they take a look at the top midrange scorers from the 2011 Rivals150.
1. Austin Rivers School: Winter Park (Fla.) High School The Buzz: His ability to score is the primary reason Rivers is the top prospect in 2011, and his knack for hitting creative and tough shots in the midrange is impressive.
2. Brad Beal School: St. Louis (Mo.) Chaminade The Buzz: Right with Rivers is Beal who will score a lot of points for Florida inside the arc.
3. Levi Randolph School: Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones The Buzz: The first thing that comes to mind with Randolph, who is an Alabama signee, is his midrange scoring game.
4. Jabari Brown School: Oakland (Claif.) High School The Buzz: Brown, an Oregon signee, has the physical strength to utilize his shooting stroke inside the arc.
5. Maurice Harkless School: South Kent (Conn.) Prep The Buzz: St. John's will add a dangerous weapon next year with Harkless' midrange scoring ability.
6. Wayne Blackshear School: Chicago (Ill.) Morgan Park The Buzz: A Louisville signee, Blackshear has put up huge scoring numbers the last couple years, largely because of his midrange scoring.
