Panama City, FL (Future150) -- When you think about the name Tiger, the first thing that comes to mind is the pro golfer Tiger Woods. With Tiger being hurt and not able to compete on the PGA circuit, one might shift their attention to basketball. With the name being pretty unique, people are going to starting thinking differently when they hear the name Tiger, because there is a new "Tyger" on the horizon.
Point guard Tyger Campbell plays basketball and he is the new #1 player in the country for the 2019 national basketball rankings. He has a great body, is super athletic and brings a skill set that is pretty much unmatched at this age. The Iowa product can score in bunches and loves to compete.
Coming in at #2 is a SF from Canada, Rowan Barrett Jr. He is a do-it-all type player who can play both inside and out. Barrett is the type of player that will push for the #1 spot in the coming years as his upside continues to grow. The #3 player on our list is Wendell Moore, out of North Carolina. The versitale shooting guard makes it really hard on us to put him here as he can also be considered the best prospect in the country. He can score in transition and shoot the mid-range and long range jumpers with consistency. He is super talented.
Rounding out the top 5 at #4 is Memphis native and small forward Chandler Lawson, who is the little brother of K.J. and Dedric Lawson. When it all said and done he might end up being the best of the three. He is long, athletic and can play all five positions on the floor if need be. At #5 is power forward Nobal Days out of Wisconsin. At 6-foot-8, he is dominating the paint on both ends of the floor. He can handle the ball and is a great interior passer.
The next five on the list starting at #6 is SG Sharif Kenney. He is super special especially when attacking the rim in transition. He has a great feel for the game and can score in bunches. The 6-foot-8 PF Balsa Koprivica from Florida is next on the list at #7. Next up at #8 is SF Scottie Lewis from New Jersey. Lewis is a well rounded player who likes to score in transition. His length might be his best attribute at such a young age.
Maybe the most well-rounded player in the top 10 is combo guard Jeremiah Francis. He can play both guard positions and is very active on the defensive end, both guarding the ball and rebounding. Finally at #10 on our list is shooting guard Kobe Langley. This guard has great handles and is extremely crafty when attacking the rim off-the-dribble. He can score on all three levels and is a matchup nightmare for smaller guards. Look for him to move up the rankings fast with a big summer.
