There may be other seniors nationally who project better at the college level and beyond, but few have been as successful and productive as Prince, who averaged 21.7 points and 7.6 rebounds per game as a junior. The Jackrabbits are 88-10 since he set foot on campus and have been a mainstay in the national rankings. If McDonald's All-American voters are serious about rewarding high school success, Prince deserves legitimate consideration. Bell is a freakish athlete that can be a game changer on the defensive end. Chatman, a transfer from Jefferson in Portland, Ore., is a versatile addition to the roster that can facilitate and score.
This may be Metoyer's most talented team, but he admitted it lacks the maturity of the 2010-11 Poly squad that featured five key seniors and went 31-2. The trio of Prince, Bell and Chatman is impressive, but the Jackrabbits got a lot of help in 2011-12 from gritty, unheralded role players. Who will step up for Poly this winter?
