3. Oak Hill Academy, Mouth of Wilson, Va. (40-1)*
Returning starters: Three. Outlook: Warriors have been known for great guards in recent seasons, and this is not an exception. Doron Lamb returns with a physical all-around game along with Pe’Shon Howard, another returnee. One new guard who will see plenty of playing time is ultra-quick Juwan Staten from Dayton, Ohio. Underneath, Walbrook (Baltimore) transfer F Roscoe Smith at 6-8 gives some size to go with 6-10 C Baye Moussa Keita, a Syracuse signee.
