The strange, frustrating end to the 2019-2020 basketball season, if in fact it is the end, affords @PrepHoopsTN time to reconsider and revise. Time to revisit the Class of 2020 rankings and adjust to account for the player’s growth and stagnation. Rankings are subjective. Why did we rank these guys? Why are they at this spot? Take a look at several Class of 2020 prospects and learn a little about their reputation.
The following players are now ranked in the Top 200 statewide (LEFT-new rank).
#195 Noah SaylorsNoahSaylors6'4" | SGJackson County | 2020StateTN (Monterey)
At the high school level level Noah is kind of a face up 4.
With his trademarked high white socks, he drifts from elbow to elbow to low blocks. He is decent from range and rebounds well at an elite Class A level.

With his trademarked high white socks, he drifts from elbow to elbow to low blocks. He is decent from range and rebounds well at an elite Class A level. Along with Peyton WestPeytonWest6'0" | PGMonterey | 2020StateTN, Saylors helped his Monterey Wildcats to start tournament. Routinely posted double figure scoring nights. Nice frame. Could use more weight room devotion this off-season. Projects as a small college 3-man. #196 Abiah RelefordAbiahReleford6'1" | CGDobyns-Bennett | 2020StateTN (Dobyns-Bennett) Abiah is a smooth, cunning guard. In a matchup against state-bound Maryville High, Releford checked Joe AndersonJoeAnderson6'0" | PGMaryville | 2020StateTN successfully for a half. As Joe was want to do in spring 2020, the exceptional point guard ignited a bonfire in the third quarter and MHS pulled away with ease. Still, Releford was a defender with elegance and patience. Offensively, Releford can do a little bit of everything. Court awareness and lateral agility remain strengths. Releford buried a wonderful 8 three pointers at Cherokee High in February. #197 Adrian DossAdrianDoss5'11" | PGGlencliff | 2020StateTN (Glencliff) Glencliff was a guard-driven team in 2019-2020 and Adrian DossAdrianDoss5'11" | PGGlencliff | 2020StateTN started alongside two other ranked players (Kairee PriceKaireePrice5'9" | PGGlencliff | 2020StateTN, Trey BrownTreyBrown6'1" | PGGlencliff | 2020StateTN). Doss averaged 12.3 ppg and 4.3 apg in his final season. The quickness of Doss allowed him to make plays. #198 Irving EspinozaIrvingEspinoza5'10" | PGWarren County | 2020StateTN (Warren County) Irving is a really good catch-and-shoot player. Maybe a combo guard. He can score from the wing. Good passer. Good level of confidence. Lead his team, a team primarily of juniors. Good presence in the open floor. Sees his teammates well. Irving understands floor spacing and doesn’t crowd his other guards. Espinoza hit five three-pointers against Stone Memorial and pulled Community High out of their two-three zone.
