You’d be hard pressed to find a player who’s a more potent threat from deep than Moss Point (Moss Point, Miss.) shooting guard Devin Booker.

Despite facing double and triple teams all season, Booker, who is ranked No. 19 in the ESPN 60, is dominating the competition so far this season and for that reason he is the focus of this week's American Family Insurance ALL-USA Watch.

Others’ Take: “This is not your typical wing guard. Booker has a few things working in his favor. For starters, he's been blessed with a unique feel for the game and a passion for his position.” -- ESPN Recruiting Nation on Booker.
 
Look Out For: Cuthbertson (Cuthbertson, N.C.) point guard Shelton Mitchell. He’s averaging 28 points and 12 assists per game this season for Cuthbertson and has had some stellar games against some of the country’s most elite guards.  

Also Look Out For: North Brunswick (North Brunswick, N.J.) guard Iverson Fleming. He’s averaging 26 points per game this season.
