The 2016 class was pretty weak overall. The transfers of Eli Wright and Braxton Beverly to out of state prep schools hurt the top half of the class. There are a handful of players who are no longer even playing basketball. Here’s a look at how the top ranked players in the 2016 class have performed since they left the high school ranks.
Other Notable Players:
13. Tyler Sharpe, Bullitt East – Sharpe started his career as a walk-on at Louisville before a transfer to Northern Kentucky this season. Sharpe started out as a role player off the bench but was starting for the Norse by the end of the season. Tyler averaged 6.7 points per game this year for NKU.
14. Isaiah Tisdale, Henry Clay – Tisdale was named a junior college All American this season while playing at Vincennes junior college. He recently committed to East Tennessee State and should compete to be their starting point guard next season.
