The class of 2017 has plenty of athletes who are on the national radar already and word is that the state is adding a transplant that would make that core group even stronger. Mitchell Robinson gets his first introduction into our website as someone who is not only rising nationally but may very well be a top player in his class in the state if he is indeed here for the long haul. The rest of the list is players who either proved their stock is real or really skyrocketed throughout the summer.

Caleb Daniels and Joseph Thompson are two players who play their grassroots ball for Texas teams but are Louisiana prep players. Daniels (St. Augustine) played with EP Elite for a while before finishing with Pro Skills out of Texas. The athletic guard really caught people’s attention throughout July with his play. Thompson (Bonnabel) used July to play with Mo Williams Academy 16u instead of 17u and it allowed him to show off his leadership and ability to take over the game. He’s a versatile forward who is really taking off.
