The Class of 2020 rankings are here!

Always remember at we rank on what a player WILL BE, not on what they are today.   In no way does this mean stop striving, because rankings always have flaws and always overlook good players.

Nearing the #100 the lists feature players that might not make it onto a college roster.  As the rankings progress beyond #115 varsity starter is the 2018-2019 goal.  Of the quintet listed below Terrance Cross has the best wing skills and DeAndre proudly features the best wing frame.

If you want to look at the complete 2020 rankings, smash here.

Read about the top 10 wings in 2020 here or top 20 wings here or top 30 wings here.

The following list reveals the 41st-45th wings in the state alongside their statewide overall ranking.  The first player listed is the #41 wing, and also the #119 overall player in Tennessee in 2020.

Blackman boasts many nice high school players.  Cross earned his way onto EAB 16u for his summer.  The team was loaded with college prospects.  Cross came off the bench.  He will need to leapfrog two or three teammates to register large minutes this winter.  Versatile defender.  Can guard 1-3 at varsity level.

Truthfully DeAndre made his way into the top 150 with size and rebounding.  At 6-foot-5 Boyland’s potential on the wing is very high.  Boyland should collect 5+ rebounds per game on a very talented Manassas team this winter.  Great strength.

East Nashville must replace a lot.  They lost five star seniors.  Together the seniors carried East Nashville to remarkable heights.  Can players including Michael Dowlin grow into larger roles?  Dowlin plays well fast.  He projects off the ball long term.

Nearing 150 many of the prospects are fighting for varsity time.  Grissim plays for a wonderful high school program.  The 6-foot-2 wing plays football too.  His toughness and academics will boost him along as a dual-sport prospect.

Like the two players above him Trevor has the talent to be a dynamic player.  Unforunately, he could be buried on the depth chart without the right kind of preseason performance.  Gaddes is very physical and hungry.  Look for him to be a complimentary scorer, not the big dog.
