Rondae Jefferson (11)
Elliot Pitts



13 California

Evan Daniels' Class Notes:
California class: California's perimeter will get a nice boost with the addition of five-star guard Jabari Bird and three-star shooter Jordan Matthews. Now the Cal is swinging for the fences with local standout Marcus Lee.

Jordan Matthews



14 Tennessee

A.J. Davis
Travon Landry


15 Illinois

19 Syracuse

Georgia Tech class: With his brother Stacey Poole already at Georgia Tech, it shouldn't be a surprise to see his brother Solomon join him. An athlete, the younger Poole is a top 10 PG in the 2013 class.
