With the 2014 travel season in the books, Emmanuel Mudiay, Stanley Johnson and Cliff Alexander stood out to 247Sports as the best prospects at their respective positions.
Emmanuel Mudiay has the tools to be a dominant point guard in the NBA.
Rarely do you find a point guard with the size, speed, explosiveness and feel for the game that Mudiay possesses. His unique blend of attributes at the most important position on the court make him the No. 1 prospect in the Top247.
Johnson comes in at No. 2. The power wing had a dominant summer as the best scoring wing in the class. Beyond his diverse scoring ability, Johnson is also a quality ball-handler, rebounder and defender.
Inside the paint, no one in the 2014 class is more physically dominant than Cliff Alexander. An explosive athlete with an impressive wingspan, Alexander runs the court, plays above the rim and is made for the NBA pick-and-roll game.
Behind Alexander at No. 4 is one of the most versatile players in the class- Kelly Oubre. The left handed wing prospect can guard about every position and has a complete offensive game to go along with his athleticism.
At No. 5 and No. 6 are the highly regarded point guard Tyus Jones and post player Jahlil Okafor. Both are highly intelligent players with Jones having a complete skill package for his position and Okafor having a repertoire of low-post moves. Jones and Okafor, however, don't have the athleticism of the prospects ahead of them.
Three prospects in the top 25 are newcomers to the five-star range. Terry Larrier moves up to No. 21. Australian import Jonah Bolden takes the No. 24 spot. And Louisville commitment Jaquan Lyle slides in at No. 25.
