After a painstaking evaluation process, we zeroed-in on 15 of the top high school basketball players in the country broken up into three teams.

Montverde (Fla.) Academy shooting guard Dariq Whitehead was named SI All-American Player of the Year after averaging 16.5 points, five rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals a game.

From nationally televised games to marquee tournaments, Whitehead, to Duke signee, consistently dominated other SI All-Americans all season, and, despite playing alongside multiple SI99 stars, he was the best player on the best team in the country.
