    Pride-blackwell from indiana,entire starting 5, and even 6th man (which is a girl) should all be on the list. Have played many that are on your top 60 and made them look silly. Just keep an eye out for cameron webster #1 dillon wright #7 julien smith #23 ashaan singh #47 R’Moni wells #15 and kailyn stone (lady iverson) #3.

    I like that you guys recognize all these kids and teams they work so hard to get to where they are now thank you

  5. Griff says:

    Not sure who ranks and scouts. But leaving off Jaedon Ward in Colorado is absurd. If its character,academics, AND skill-then Jaedon should unquestionably be on this list.

    There are so many other good players like Manas Sinha for example
