1. Shabazz Muhammad, G/F, UCLA

Shabazz Muhammad January 2013

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.
