The new 247Sports composite rankings were revealed and a few players swapped places for nationally and position ranks. For the state rankings, Georgia now has a new No.1 ranked player, with other players moving up in the rankings as well. Some players also remained stagnate with their rank in the state, but here are some players who have moved up in the 247Sports composite rankings nationally, in the state and for their position:
Brandon Boston Jr., Shooting Guard – 6’6 175 lbs. – Norcross HS (Norcross, GA)
According to the 247 composite rankings, there is now a new No.1 for the state of Georgia and that is now 6’6 Norcross shooting guard Brandon Boston Jr. Nationally, Boston moved up from being ranked at 15th to 10th in the nation as well. He is also now ranked second for his position, moving up from third ranked. Boston is one of the state-wide favorites to watch, as the guard has been competing in a list of camps for the month of June. In June, Boston competed in the NBPA Top 100 camp and performed at an elite level as many would assume. Boston is the complete package with great ball handling, can finish in the lane amongst the bigs and has a savvy jump shot as well. With 30 offers so far, Boston has shown slight interest in Duke, Florida and Kentucky.
Sharife Cooper, Point Guard – 6-0 160 lbs. – McEachern HS (Marietta, GA)
Known as a scoring-machine in the entire state hoop circuit, McEachern’s Sharife Cooper has essentially boosted his stock on a national this summer. Cooper’s summer has been extravagant, playing and competing in the USAB U19 try outs and various other camps. The Mr. Georgia Basketball winner also competed in the Nike EYBL regular season, averaging 25.5 ppg as a member of the Athletes of Tomorrow team of Powder Springs, Georgia. Cooper is a certified bucket-getter, who has excellent court vision at the one position. Cooper currently has 18 offers from schools including Auburn, Kentucky and Clemson. The Auburn Tigers seem to be the program leader for Cooper’s list college choices.
Brandon Stroud, Shooting Guard – 6’5 175 lbs. – East Coweta (Sharpsburg, GA)
One of the main standouts in the LakePoint’s Battle for Georgia over the weekend, Brandon Stroud made a huge jump in the national rankings. Being ranked at 172nd early June, the East Coweta combo guard is now ranked at 157th for the nation. Stroud moved up rankings for the state as well from 9th to 8th and jumped to 34th from 35th for his position. The 6’5 guard is having a productive summer playing in various camps as a member of the Big Shots Elite travel team. Over the weekend, he led his team to a victory in the championship game of the Battle for Georgia defeating the Atlanta Celtics in the showcase. Stroud will now be competing in the Live Period in Myrtle Beach tomorrow and Friday and will be a key baller to watch for this busy month.
Eugene Brown, Shooting Guard – 6’5 170 lbs. – Southwest Dekalb (Decatur, GA)
Dedicating his summer to figuring out his recruiting process, the 6’5 Southwest Dekalb guard in Eugene Brown has jumped up a couple spots in the state rankings. Being ranked at eighth in the state earlier in June, Brown is now rated at sixth. The 4-star prospect has visited a good grip of schools this year so far and has been on Butler’s radar for a quite some time now. He participated in the UGA team camp, while also taking an unofficial visit to the program and was eventually offered by the Bulldogs. Brown has also taken the summer to break down his game and increase the level of play to prepare himself in upcoming team camps this month. Brown currently has 7 offers from schools including Georgia Tech, Clemson and Xavier.
