here was a lot of of shake-up in the latest Class of 2021 prospect rankings, which is inclined to happen when the players are still so early in their high school careers. Not only are the guys growing an improving at an exponential rate at this age, but we as evaluators have gotten much better insight into prospects. By this time next year, the 2021s rankings will start to take on a more stable form, but for now, consider them very fluid.

Below we take a look at eight guys who made substantial leaps in the latest prospect rankings.




Landon Eiland (North Scott) -- 49 to 22

What we like best about Eiland isn’t necessarily the height, length and shooting ability, although those are all great traits, but it’s his ability to be productive on an elite team. North Scott is unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in 4A, it’s tough sometimes for sophomores to crack the rotations of teams  -- and programs -- like that. Eliand has done it, and done it well.


Justin Recker (Monticello) -- 31
