The high school basketball season is in full swing and some of the nation’s best are playing well and leading their teams. Others are extremely productive and having great individual performances.
There's also a small group of players who are good now with a chance of big-time growth.
As top-ranked players, they have talent. It's what they do with it that will determine their ultimate success. To reach their potential, it’s a matter of two important questions. Does the prospect have the necessary tools to perform at a high level? And will he do what is necessary from an effort standpoint to be great?
Let's take a look at players who are playing at a high level now and who have plenty of potential to be even better down the road.
