1. Shabazz Muhammad, G/F, UCLA
Shabazz Muhammad came into this season as the number two high school prospect for the Class of 2013, and he has not disappointed. His career in Westwood started in a very unfortunate way as he was originally suspended by the NCAA for receiving improper benefits. This suspension was later removed.
After a slow start to the season, Muhammad has now been lights out. He had a coming-out party against Missouri, in which he scored 27 points on a national stage. This also included a couple of huge shots in crunch time.
Muhammad is a great athlete, with a good jump shot and an elite ability to get to the rim. With a lot of uncertainty with a few of the top prospects, Muhammad is the safest pick because of his consistent ability to score the basketball.
