Here’s a broad overview of our new top-75 rankings for the class of 2019, taking a look at some of the trends we’ve seen so far. Stay tuned for more in depth breakdowns of the 2019 class along with new rankings for 2020 and 2021!
Aside from the return of the Mitchell twins, both of whom are in the top five, and Marvin Price, the biggest story in the top ten has been James Bishop‘s ascent. Team Thrill’s point guard, who has seen his recruitment expand tremendously in recent weeks, has carried the load offensively this spring, but his defense has also improved as well.
A handful of players have made strong cases to move up in the rankings with their recent play. Here we highlight just five of many players who fit into that category.
