Here’s a broad overview of our new top-55 rankings for the class of 2020, taking a look at some of the trends we’ve seen so far. Stay tuned for more in depth breakdowns of the 2020 class along with new rankings for 2021!
Several prospects have respectively strong cases to move up in the rankings, but it’s hard to argue for anyone to break into our top five. Five-star post prospect Hunter Dickinson, who has been invited to USA Basketball, remains in the top spot. State champ and EYBL standout Justin Lewis, who is being actively recruited by power five programs all across the country, sits tight in the second slot. WCAC champ Earl Timberlake, a consensus high major recruit who will also be at USA Basketball in Colorado Springs, is our third ranked prospect. Ace Baldwin, who is ranked fourth and beginning to see his recruitment expand as he runs the show for 17U Team BBC, is our #1 point guard in the state. Rounding out our top five is Terrance Williams, who is producing consistently and shooting the lights out for the top ranked AAU team in the country right now.
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.
