2010: July Stock Risers

Jones, Harris, Ellington

Scout.com spent the entire month of July on the road evaluating prospects. With the month behind us, we put together a list of 10 guys that raised their play during both evaluation periods.

Class of 2010 Summer Risers
Tobias Harris – PF / #29 overall – Dix Hills (N.Y.) H.H. Hills West
DT's Breakdown: Made the biggest jump of any player rated in the Top 30. After addressing his conditioning he toned up his body and his game expanded. Turned in an all-american summer and had the gyms buzzing.

Schools Involved: Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Connecticut, Kentucky Syracuse, Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Louisville, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.

Carson Desrosiers – C / #77 overall – Lawr. (Mass.) Central Catholic
DT's Breakdown: Almost under the radar, Desrosiers, a 6-foot-10, 205-pound big man, was dominant in Vegas. Hard working, skilled big man has legit size and went from prospect to player in the latter stages of his summer basketball journey.

Schools Involved: Wake Forest, Syracuse, Arizona State, Marquette, Stanford, Providence and Georgia Tech

Jeremy Lamb – Unranked – Norcross (Ga.) Norcross
DT's Breakdown: The son of a former college player, Lamb rocked the Peach Jam where his blowup came at the expense of regional mid-majors. A future Top 100 player, we love our late bloomers and he qualifies! Shooting is his forte, but he's not bad going to the rim either.

Schools Involved Kentucky, Texas, Marquette, Georgia, Clemson, Connecticut, Alabama and Xavier

K.T. Harrell – Unranked – Montgomery (Ala.) Brewbaker Tech
DT's Breakdown: This one is on us because we didn't see him until the end of July. A Top 100 lock, Harrell has the grades, game and mindset to be a front tier player at Virginia and help Tony Bennett in a big way. In Orlando the 6-foot-3, 170-pound wing demanded the ball and showed an impressive offensive package.

Committed: Virginia

Michael Bradley – Unranked – Chattanooga (Tenn.) Tyner Academy
DT's Breakdown: It's tough to "stumble" across 6-10 guys but we did in Orlando. This guy averaged 2 points as a sophomore but toed the line with Andre Drummond. He's our big man find of the summer like Damontre Harris was last winter.

Schools Involved: Tennessee State, Drake, VCU, Middle Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Memphis and Oral Roberts
