Fast rising Class of 2014 basketball prospects

With the 2011-2012 basketball season quickly coming to a conclusion, we are looking to update our top prospect lists. Know of a Class of 2014 (sophomore!) standout that deserves to be considered?  Provide us the information for consideration!

Below are four sophomores that have been 'fast-risers' this season! Certainly there are many more, so please let us know about them - email us at [email protected].

Osbourn Park's Cameron Smith: With older brother Garrett as the the focal point of many defensive game-plans, Cameron turned out to really slice defenses up during his sophomore season. He earned All-Cardinal District First Team honors, averaging 13.9 points per game. Smith attacked defenses of the bounce and showed a high basketball IQ throughout the year.

Potomac's Randy Haynes: Another sophomore that was chosen All-Cardinal District First Team, Haynes has been a real catalyst for a Panthers team that has won eight in a row. He's averaging 13.3 points per game, getting the job done as an undersized post wh is developing more overall skills. By his senior year, teams may have no choice but to throw two defenders at him.

Herndon's Dorian Johnson: The 6-foot-3 shooting guard really blossomed this season for the Hornets. Johnson enters the region playoffs averaging 16.8 points per game with 41 three-pointers made while shooting 76% from the free-throw line. His ability to score inside and outside makes him an intriguing prospect at the next level.

Maury's Jaleel Ferguson: In a year where his older brother Jamal (signed with Marquette) gets most of the attention, Jaleel has been the Commodores' most valuable player some nights. On the year he's putting up roughly 13 points and 11 rebounds per game. At 6-foot-5, Ferguson's length around the basket is an asset, and he's become more aggressive offensively in recent months, too.
