    I know you all won’t post this comment b/c you are ANTI BAGLEY! LMAO!!!! Video please????? Bagley has video. Who is the world is this kid??? MSE you are digging your own grave. KEEP YOUR CREDIBILITY!

  2. Loadofcrap says:

    After their height they need to put their DOB. Most of the top guys will be driving in 9th grade.

    • Tvown says:

      Some of them are driving to 8th grade lol. I see a top 10 that I know is about to be 16yrs old. You can’t blame MSE though, they didn’t hold the kids back so they can compete against younger kids, their parents did. Bottom line they are still 2018.

  3. twin says:


  4. TeamJamzElite says:

    Tyler Herro should atleast be on this list. The kid is a 6’1 guard out of Milwaukee,Wi. Tyler plays for Wi United. Tyler had 20+ Points and 4+ assist and 4+ rebounds on Chicago Select(Sherrod Amari), Mac Irvin Fire (Kezo Brown, Chase Adams, Jordan Morris) Wi playground warriors(Jordan Mccabe) Team Ramey (Courtney Ramey) Meanstreets(Justin Boyd) Rytes Warriors (Jamal Biemey, Eden Holt, Cj Washington) Sw jets( Careare Gordon) Add him to the list. His mixtape from ballislife drops soon.

  5. twin says:

    thx… LOL..but we just going 2 put this 1 in books as lack of seeing both players. never want charity work….. I RESPECT THE PLATFORM u and others make for the younger kids and would not want to hurt that.. keep it up… luv

  6. J.Andrew says:

    Jordan McAllister is from Newburgh,NY

  7. Jordon Austin says:

    Carteaire Gordan is by far top 15 in this class kid has talent

  8. DMV Man says:

    You are crazy to put Brandon Slater that low on your list. Give me 5 reasons he cannot be to 20 in the rankings.

  9. DC Elite says:

    Where is sheriff Kenny? This list is garbage.

  10. NC says:

    You completely missed Devon Dotson. He was in the 40’s last year and then he falls off the list completely. Best point guard in North Carolina. One of the best in the nation. Played for CB Spiders. PG and led team to 2 top 10 finishes at Nationals. Now with Mugsy Bogues team in Charlotte.

  11. Coach southern in heat says:

    Matt Martin combo guard from Jennings county hr south of Indy should be in top 100 for sure averages 16.5 ppg 4 spg 4.5 rpg plays for southern indiana heat aau team! Hustles,smart, very coachable!

  12. I'm not biased says:

    Where is Isiah Kelly, Augusta Christian in Augusta, Ga. He was the best player at the Under Armour Grind Session in DC and made the top 20 game of the Fab Fresh and Best of the Best in Atlanta with a noticeable limp. Play’s with Team Power/Young Legends but will be at Nationals with Atlanta Celtics

  13. truth is revelant says:

    When you have 15 & 16 year olds competing against 13 & 14 year olds it’s going g to look like they are better than what they are. But in reality when you look at their talent they are just bigger not better players. In Illinois we have players that should be entering highschool competing with 7th graders. To not acknowledge that is to support cheating .

  14. hoophead says:

    Isaiah Kelly was at the DC grind session and was a top 5 kid at Atlanta grind session was hurt and was a top 5 kid, at the future 150 camp in Atlanta he made the top 20 game and was invite to the elite 24 camp, made the Dunk Dog All American Game at CP3RisingStars national camp – kid can go

  15. hoophead says:

    Some are sleeping on the guards for team Izod and the Woodard kid from MS, these kiss have that wow factor.

  16. Abhinav Cheruvu says:

    Haha!Where’s Reginald Chaney!This list is trash!

  17. coach anderson says:

    maxpreps high school basketball stats for 9th graders nationally has a kid listed zion williamson at spartanburg day school in leading the 2018class in scoring 28.5pts a game,top 10 in rebs, steals, field goal pct, and blks. 14 year old kid,6’4, high basketball IQ. you heard it first, numbers never lie. i’m sure all the kids are worthy of their rankings, base on the numbers, this has to be one of the top 9thgraders in the 2018 class.

  18. Cade Potter says:

    you guys should have a list for non hold backs

  19. Dewayne Brooks says:

  20. Jeff Thomas says:

    YES This young man Eric McNary JR is very impressive i saw him in person on Saturday against Lanier as my son plays for Lanier and he really went to work in the second half of that game he is a terrific player

  21. John says:

    Christopher Owens 8th grade SG from Olive Branch Middle school should be on this list… He’s great shot 7 (3’s) in one game

  22. John says:

    Christopher Owens 8th grade SG from Olive Branch Middle school should be on this list… He’s great shot 7 (3’s) in one game… From Olive Branch Ms
