Mitch McGary
Big, 6-10, 250-pounds, Brewster Academy (NH)
Plans to Sign: Wednesday (9 A.M.)
ESPN: 5-star (2); Rivals: 5-star (3); Scout: 5-star (2)
Expert opinion: “It is difficult to find players who bring all-out effort and energy on a consistent basis, but McGary does it better than anyone. Not only does he bring energy to his own game, he gives it to his teammates. His motor never stops as he constantly works the backboard, runs the floor and dives on the floor for loose balls” – Paul Biancardi

Wing, 6-foot-6, 195 lbs
Plans to Sign: Wednesday, ~6 p.m. ET
ESPN: 4-star (52); Rivals: 4-star (34); Scout: 4-star (38)
Expert opinion: “Blessed with basketball genes, Robinson is an explosive athlete with length. He’s able to get to the rim with ease and can over bigger defenders in the paint.  He’s a great rebounder from the wing, and uses his length and athleticism to be effective on the glass. With his length and quickness he has the potential to be a great defender on the wing.” –Joe Eberhardt/Indy HS Hoops

Plans to Sign: Friday
ESPN: 4-star (83); Rivals: 4-star (79); Scout: 3-star
Expert opinion: “A knock down shot maker with good size and toughness for the two-guard spot, Stauskas needs to dedicate himself to maximizing his physical potential with only limited amounts of athleticism and quickness to begin with.” – ESPN
