We updated our 2022 rankings on our website. 150 players are now ranked, with another 40 on our watch list. Here is what you need to know about the updates.
The top 5 players stayed pretty similar,is clearly the top prospect in this class. takes over the second spot after a good spring with All Ohio Red. is currently injured, but he stays in the top 5 at number 3. had a monster state championship weekend and has improved his stock with Wildcats Select. is at 5, he’s a dynamic scorer who is very close to 2,000 career points entering his senior season.
Rounding out the top 10 has a trio of high major commits and a duo that I think is underrated on the recruiting scene. Future Ohio State Buckeyesits at 6. , a future West Virginia Mountaineer, is at 7. is at 8, I like what he brings next to for All Ohio Red. is the tallest player in our rankings, he’s headed to Auburn. rounds out our top 10, I love his toughness and production. He’s lacking in height for a post prospect, but he seems to always produce.
Outside of Tolentino and Simmons, there are a handful of quality centers in the 2022 class., Josh Whiteside and are just a few of the other names to keep an eye on.
There are plenty of quality wings in this class, Livingston and Mahaffey sit atop the SF rankings, but don’t sleep on shooters like, and others.
Point guards is a deep position once again, with 21 of the last 50 ranked players at that position. Division III and NAIA programs should be checking out those prospects this summer.
We’ll have more content throughout the week on different position groups and why new names are being placed where they were. Happy to answer any questions you may have about the rankings and process of updating.
