How were these NBA stars ranked in high school?

RUSSELL WESTBROOK, 2006: NO. 137

A high three-star prospect in high school, Russell Westbrook thrived over two seasons at UCLA, earning Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year honors as a sophomore, and reaching the Final Four each year in college.

As a freshman, Westbrook played backup to current Indiana Pacers point guard Darren Collison. He then earned the starting job in his second year, when he formed a nasty tandem with Kevin Love that got UCLA within two games of a national title.

Some of the players ranked ahead of Westbrook, the 2017 league MVP, in high school include Brandan WrightTy Lawson and Wayne Ellington, which shows just how inexact of a science recruiting can be.
