2009 National Prep Showcase Preview
by: Jonathan Givony - President
November 20, 2009
This weekend DraftExpress will convene on New Haven, Connecticut to take in some of the top players the world of prep school basketball has to offer. This event, organized by Adam Finkelstein, has treated us well over the past few years, allowing us to get invaluable early glimpses at players such as Michael Beasley, Tyreke Evans, Devin Ebanks, Craig Brackins, Avery Bradley and others. This will be our fourth consecutive year in attendance.



Most of our intrigue will revolve around 6-10 man-child Andre Drummond, regarded by many as the top prospect in the high school class of 2012, and swingman Will Barton, a consensus top-10 recruit according to most scouting services.

Beyond Barton and Drummond, there will surely be other prospects catching our eye. Here are some of the main ones we’ll be looking at, along with the school they are committed to, as well as the schedule. Unless noted, players listed are members of the 2010 high school class. Some teams play twice, but their prospects are listed only the first time they play.
