Bruce Thornton & Milton

Milton is one of the youngest teams in 7A, but they don't play like it. When you have talented underclassmen who express lots of confidence and intensity, it helps to negate some of the lack of age/experience. At the Jared Cook Classic, the Eagles went toe-to-toe with Grayson and narrowly lost after some controversial officiating. Just days later, they defeated Kell by double-digits in a highly anticipated matchup between Thornton and fellow 2022 PG Scoot Henderson. That being said, I may need to place Thornton back at #1 in the next rankings update in February. He scored an absurd 42 points against Grayson and then played a nice overall game to lead Milton to the victory over Kell. Thornton and Henderson were swapped at the #1 and #2 spots after Henderson's showing at the USA Minicamp in October, but Thornton's play to start the season warrants him regaining the top spot. With him, Kanaan Carlyle, Evan Hurst, new transfer LT Overton, and others, Milton should make a deep run in 7A.
