RealScout.net Nathan Blue, takes a look at the Top 25 players who have impressed me from NYC (or LI) in the 2010 class.
You heard the names before, no long Profiles, and think of the hundreds of kids not in the Top 25 and so be happy, but at the same time strive for that #1 slot.

RealScout.net 2010 Pre-Summer Rankings
#1. Doron Lamb (Pictured) 6'4 NY Gauchos (OakHill VA) SG
Like Harris and Pinkston, can be a McDonald's all-american if they can keep riding their spring success
#2. Tobias Harris 6'7 Albany City Rocks (Half Hallow Hills West) SF
Eventhough he's lost some games, he's showed his improvement in conditioning, and turned from a 4man into a capable 3man.
#3. Jayvaughn Pinkston 6'5 New Heights (Loughlin) SF
Shooting the ball very well, and his inside game is still the best out there.

JAM Fest MVP, plays the game with passion and desire not found in most.
#5. Russ Smith 6'0 NY Gauchos (South Kent CT) SG/PG
Too much game. Scorer, creator, and soon a great defender
