As we move into the final 70 prospects in our 2020 rankings, let’s keep in mind a couple overarching themes present in any statewide ranking. As we mentioned a couple articles ago, players in this range often haven’t emerged quite yet. Some will move way up over time as they develop new skills and fill gaps in their game.
Also, we’re to a very fluid portion of the rankings here, especially for prospects that are this young. There’s not a ton of separation between player no. 76 and no. 100, whereas the difference between no. 1 and no. 25 is usually high-major versus marginal D-I prospect. As we continue checking in with these prospects time and again going forward, flaws and strengths become more pronounced and the rankings become more accurate over time (hopefully).
This is also the range where a lot of our newcomers will land. Sometimes a player will move from, say, no. 77 to no. 89 just because we’re constantly discovering D-III and potential D-II prospects. With that being said, we’ll simply shine a light on our newcomers in this article.
