Crabbe shows major improvement  

February, 19, 2010
The West Coast recruiting class of 2010 may be the least talented crop of prospects since Jason Kidd laced them up in 1992 at Alameda, Calif./St. Joseph. Kidd was a member of a class, which also included Reggie Geary, Brandon Jessie, and Brandon Titus, that lacked depth and quality for that matter.

The 2010 class, however, does have a position that appears to be more than just solid. Although there isn't a McDonald's All-American amongst this group, they're a quite a few 3-men who should make an immediate impact the moment they arrive on campus, including UCLA-bound Tyler Lamb (Santa Ana, Calif./Mater Dei) and Cal-bound Allen Crabbe (Los Angeles/Price). Here's my break down of the top senior wings out West:

Best All-Around
Tyler Lamb (6-5, 190)
Santa Ana, Calif./Mater Dei
Lamb is the most polished prospect in this group. He isn't the bounciest, but his skills and savvy for the game speak volumes. The only question mark concerning his game is his inconsistent outside shot. However, due to his approach, he should be a fine fit in Ben Howland's defensive-minded system.
