Austin Rivers

PG/SG, Duke

Rivers (the middle son of Celtics coach Doc) has such an advanced offensive skill set that he's expected to be one of the country's best scoring guards from Day 1. There may be better pro prospects in the Class of 2011, such as Kentucky's Anthony Davis, but Rivers is a polished player who's ready to make the biggest immediate impact.
