1) Mylik Wilson 6’3 SG Rayville

I think that over the past year, Wilson has really moved himself into a class of his own for the 2019 class, and unless something really surprising happens this summer, I don’t see anyone taking over the top spot fo the 2019 class. Wilson is an incredible athlete and shooter, not just in the state but in the country. One of the most underrated aspects of his game is definitely his defense, and he is the best defender of the 2019 class that I’ve seen so far. In their matchup against Riverside earlier this season, when he was guarding Jared Butler, Butler had trouble just getting the ball across halfcourt. I would be very surprised if we don’t see Wilson have a big summer nationally, and I think he is going to end up top 60 nationally.

2) Jordan Wright 6’5 SG Dunham

Jordan Wright and Dunham have had a great year, and have put themselves in prime position to make yet another run to the Top 28. Wright has elite size to play either guard position at the next level, and has an incredibly high IQ both on and off the basketball court. Wright is an incredibly hard worker, and has done a great job of becoming a better shooter from deep. I expect Wright to continue to rack up offers this summer, and pick up a handful of high major offers.

3) Moses Ngodock 6’8 PF Northshore

Ngodock is another player that has continued to get better and rise up the rankings, going from unranked a year ago, to the 3rd ranked player of the 2019 class. Ngodock has been a rebounding machine all season long, and is averaging over 11 RPG this season. After watching Ngodock, you can see its no coincidence how Ngodock is able to rack up the rebounds, with his incredible energy and effort when hitting the glass. He has also become a very reliable shooter from deep, and is going to be a very effective stretch four at the next level.

4) Tylan Pope 6’6 SF Northshore

Pope is another forward with good size that plays with an incredible motor on both sides of the ball. He is has done a really good job of transitioning from a back to the basket center, to a wing that is capable of putting the ball on the deck and knocking down 3s. Tylan picked up his first D1 offer earlier this season to UNO, and I expect him to pickup a handful more D1 offers this summer.

5) Dywan Griffin 6’0 PG Landry-Walker

Griffin is the next point guard up for Landry-Walker, and he has done a great job leading the Chargin Bucs this year as just a junior. Landry-Walker is currently top 3 seeded in 5A heading into the playoffs, and they are right on pace to make yet another trip to the Top 28. Griffin is a pass first traditional point guard, that is more than capable of scoring, especially around the rim,  when the game gets tight.
