4. Jesus Shuttlesworth
As the most highly desired high school basketball prospect in the nation, Jesus Shuttlesworth is loaded with talent. He’s a 6-foot-5 multidimensional offensive threat. In other words, he’s an absolute problem on the hardwood. He can shoot the lights out from deep, finish around the rim, and score in the mid-range. He’s even pretty solid on defense.
My only concern with Shuttlesworth is that we never really see how his career pans out after high school. At the end of He Got Game he beats his dad in one-on-one but still gives up five buckets to an out-of-shape, middle-aged guy. Shouldn’t he have shut him out if he’s really the number one high school player in the nation?
He’s got talent, but I’m a little nervous about how his career will pan out when he’s playing against the best grown men in the world.
