Posted On: 09/7/17 12:30 PM

With our recently updated 2018 class rankings, there have been some players who have made huge leaps including a couple of players who received their first Division I offers. Here’s a look at some of the players who made the biggest moves up our rankings.

2018 Scott County/TN Bobcats G Cooper Robb

Cooper Robb, Scott County – Robb had a huge summer playing with the Tennessee Bobcats. He moves from 40th all the way up to lucky number 13 in the latest rankings. Robb got offers at the D1 and D2 levels in July before committing to Charlotte. Cooper will look to lead his Scott County Cardinals to another state tournament.

Carter Hendricksen, Lexington Christian – Moving from 19th to 12th in the class may not seem like a huge move, but Carter gained his first D1 offer from North Florida and has interest from a half dozen other D1 schools. If Carter chooses to wait until the spring signing period to commit, he will likely be the recipient of several more scholarship offers.

Darius Harding, Elizabethtown – Rising from 32nd to 22nd in the rankings, the 6’3″ SG looks to build on a strong summer with the Louisville Prospects, Currently holding interest from several D2, NAIA and D3 colleges, Harding is a top player in the 5th region. For Elizabethtown to have any chance at winning the region, Darius is going to have to do it all for the Panthers.

Mekell Burries, Newport – Moving up to 27th in the new rankings, Buries has racked up a couple of NAIA offers after a good July of AAU. He also reports some D1 interest from the service academies. Buries will look to carry his Newport squad past Covington Catholic and Cooper and make a run at Rupp Arena.
