The class of 2012 was obscenely fun to cover from the Hoophall Classic through last night’s Jordan Brand Classic. Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel have given us plenty to talk about and with the start of the regular signing period now in the rear view, we look ahead to the rest of the signing period and who else is still on the board.
Earlier in this process we began our Unsigned Stars series, focusing on the top 10 players (according to Rivals) who were unsigned on February 2. Here is the complete list of featured players.
- Shabazz Muhammad, Bishop Gorman (Nev.): No. 1, Small Forward (Signed with UCLA 4/11/2012)
- Anthony Bennett, Findlay College Prep (Nev.): No. 7, Power Forward (Signed with UNLV 5/12/2012)
- Devonta Pollard, Kemper County (Miss.): No. 9, Small Forward
- Tony Parker, Miller Grove (Ga.): No. 33, Center (Signed with UCLA 4/24/2012)
- Amile Jefferson, Friends Central (Penn.): No. 36, Power Forward (Signed with Duke 5/15/2012)
- Ricardo Gathers, Riverside Academy (La.): No. 37, Power Forward (Signed with Baylor 2/6/2012)
- Winston Shepard, Findlay College Prep (Nev.): No. 40, Small Forward (Signed with SDSU 2/16/2012)
- Nino Jackson, Ardmore (Okla.): No. 46, Point Guard
- Torian Graham, Arlington Country Day (N.C.): No. 51, Shooting Guard
As you can see, seven of the 10 players we profiled are still on the board. Several of these players will make their decision in the coming weeks, with many fanbases on the edge of their seat.
So where are they going? Who knows! I was convinced Muhammad was going to Kentucky and Noel was going to Syracuse, but they both proved me wrong on Wednesday night. That said, here is where I believe the Unsigned Stars will be headed next year.
- Bennett: Kentucky
- Pollard: Georgetown
- Parker: Duke
- Jefferson: Duke
- Jackson: Prep or JUCO
- Graham: NC State or JUCO
