Just over 150 of the Prep Hoops top 500 seniors are still available now that national signing day has came and went. Who are those available talents? We categorize them at Prep Hoops now. 

The Five Star Elite.  The truly elite players in America don’t need to sign letters of intent early in the process.  These players are wanted by nearly every school that has a scholarship therefore these players have the time to see what coach will still be at his school, what players go pro and who stays, and what fellow recruits attend what school (and these days, what school gets in trouble, and which schools get to slide by). Here your Five Star Elite Top Ten

  1. Cole Anthony (VA)
  2. Anthony Edwards (GA)
  3. Matthew Hurt (MN)
  4. Vernon Carey (FL)
  5. Jaden McDaniels (WA)
  6. Isaiah Stewart (NY)
  7. Previous Achiuwa (NY)
  8. Trayce Jackson-Davis (IN)
  9. Keion Brooks (IN)
  10. Trendon Watford (AL)

Four Star Studs.  Ten of top 30 players in the country are still available but when it comes to the rest of the nation, most found their future school and jumped at the chance to star for that school.  Who is left?  Here is our top ten when it comes to the Four Star Studs.

  1. Kofi Cockburn (NY)
  2. Christian Brown (VA)
  3. Cassius Stanley (CA)
  4. Akok Akok (signing in December) (CT)
  5. Chol Marial (AZ)
  6. Terrence Shannon (IL)
  7. Lester Quinones (NY)
  8. Qudus Wahab (VA)
  9. Isiaiah Mosley (MO)
  10. Harlond Beverly (FL)

Working to 4-Star Status.  Some players in the following group have already become 4-star players by some services and Prep Hoops is watching them closely to see if they should earn that full fourth star.  Here is our ten in that group.

  1. Tre Mitchell (CT)
  2. Tyrese Samuel (went to a prep in Canada)
  3. Gerald Drumgoole (IN)
  4. Chris Payton (IL)
  5. Kenyon Martin Jr (CA)
  6. Sherif Kenney (NV)
  7. Scotty Pippen Jr (CA)
  8. Emmanuel Taban Jr (AZ)
  9. Damion Baugh (TN)
  10. RJ Blakney (MD)

Spring Recruiting Spoils? The beauty of playing well in the winter and then signing in the spring is that there aren’t many players available and guys can get more recruiting attention than they normally would. Guys that could take their offer list and build it into many options. 

  1. Majok Deng (AZ)
  2. Mahamadou Diawara (VA)
  3. Jalyn McCreary (SC)
  4. Kuany Kuany (CA)
  5. Tristan Enaruna (UT)
  6. Anwar Gill (DC)
  7. Myles Baker (IL)
  8. Damar Monsanto (FL)
  9. Dericko Williams (NC)
  10. Karim Coulibaly (PA)

Next Up.  Another ten that could also enjoy the fortune of spring recruiting needs at the college level.  These ten may have a few more hills to climb but could be in the same situation as the previous ten. 

  1. Marvin Price (WV)
  2. Carl Lewis (CA)
  3. Michael Moreno (KY)
  4. Raymond Hawkins (CA)
  5. Nick Blake (CA)
  6. Jordan Hilstock (CA)
  7. Jamon Battle (VA)
  8. Robert McRae III (CA)
  9. Deuce Dean (SC)
  10. Jason Jitoboh (TN)

The Ten to Watch. This ten below, it’s a special group of players.  In fact, I feel like all ten of these guys will not only blow up our Prep Hoops top 500, but also take somebody’s place on the list above. 

  1. Myron Gardner (OH)
  2. Rick Issanza (AZ)
  3. Issa Muhammad (GA)
  4. Kenny Isnord (FL)
  5. Trae Broadnax (FL)
  6. Dereon Seabron (VA)
  7. Tony Johnson (AL)
  8. Jordan Wright (LA)
