P.J. Hairston

Name: P.J. Hairston

Overall Rank: #12

Position (Rank): Shooting Guard (#3)

College: North Carolina

High School: Hargrave Military Academy (Virginia)

Height: 6’5

Weight: 220

Evaluation: Hairston has an unbelievable combination of strength and shooting ability. His range and consistency is up there with Rivers’ and Beal’s and finishes like no other in the class. He is a big-time scorer who is helped out by his size which allows him to simply shoot over smaller defenders. Few guards can match his strength which allows him to use it to his advantage. He isn’t as polished as most players ranked this high but his pure talent and potential leaves no doubt that he can be a great player at the next level. He needs to improve on his ball-handling, mid-range game and rebounding consistency but he is a raw prospect who will certainly improve at North Carolina.

Notes: Committed to North Carolina in August, 2009

Awards: 2011 McDonald’s All-American, 2011 Jordan Brand Classic Participant
