The spring is now just about here and we are spending time over the next month preparing and previewing all you need to know about the 2021 class as AAU gets ready to get going.  We will breakdown many areas with not only position breakdowns but the best of the best. Today, we are looking at those top sleepers in the 2021 class.

The class of 2021 has been really outstanding so far and when looking at this upcoming spring and summer, there are tons of guys who are about to make a name for themselves.  The five players we have listed are names that are already well known in the scouting and AAU circles and we are looking for them to breakout and become more household names in the upcoming months.

Blake Sisley has had an outstanding season for Heritage Hills and is one of the most versatile and productive post players in this class. He will be able to show his impact this summer and his game is one that should translate to AAU pretty well.  His upside is  high and he’s really close to busting out.

Douglas Koznieczny is one of my favorite players in the class. Really long, rangy wing who can really shoot the ball and has the look of someone who is still going to grow. Things might take a little more time for him to develop but all things are pointing up.

Brett Bosley is one of the more well-built wings in the class. His physicality and size will be easily used this summer and that ease of transition will be easily noticeable and he should be able to play well quickly.

Chris Mantis just had his older brother come through the state so the name is already out there but Chris looks like the better prospect right now. Really long and active and tends to impact a lot of areas of the game. If he can do even just a portion of that during AAU, you will really take notice of that.

Michael Eley looks like a prospect with all the upside you want and he’s been productive enough this year to buy into it. He’s shooting the ball really well and everything is starting to become a little more developed with each viewing. His upside is really high if that development continues.
