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, Chris Livingston Chris Livingston 6'6" | SF Buchtel | 2022 State #3 Nation OH is clearly the top prospect in this class. Sean Jones Sean Jones 5'11" | PG Gahanna | 2022 State #177 Nation OH takes over the second spot after a good spring with All Ohio Red. Evan Mahaffey Evan Mahaffey 6'6" | SF Moeller | 2022 State #208 Nation OH is currently injured, but he stays in the top 5 at number 3. Sencire Harris Sencire Harris 6'5" | PG St. Vincent-St. Mary | 2022 State OH had a monster state championship weekend and has improved his stock with Wildcats Select. Paul McMillan IV Paul McMillan IV 6'2" | PG Cincinnati Woodward | 2022 State #56 Nation OH 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 Buckeye Bowen Hardman Bowen Hardman 6'4" | SG Princeton | 2022 State #245 Nation OH sits at 6. Josiah Harris Josiah Harris 6'7" | PF Richmond Heights | 2022 State OH , a future West Virginia Mountaineer, is at 7. Elmore James Elmore James 6'4" | SG Brush | 2022 State OH is at 8, I like what he brings next to Sean Jones Sean Jones 5'11" | PG Gahanna | 2022 State #177 Nation OH for All Ohio Red. Sage Tolentino Sage Tolentino 7'0" | C Hamilton | 2022 State OH is the tallest player in our rankings, he’s headed to Auburn. Javan Simmons Javan Simmons 6'6" | C Gahanna | 2022 State OH 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. Antwone Woolfolk Antwone Woolfolk 6'7" | C Brush | 2022 State OH , Josh Whiteside and Brandon McLaughlin Brandon McLaughlin 6'8" | C Heath | 2022 State OH 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 Tom House Tom House 6'5" | SF Centerville | 2022 State OH , Andrew Harp Andrew Harp 6'5" | SF Elder | 2022 State OH 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.
