  1. A small guy from a small town ready to ball

  2. Coach says:

    One of the most realistic, and hands on rankings out today. No Daddy Balling.

    • DC Mayor says:

      You must not follow c/o 2023. Several kids on this list are not even the best on their own AAU team and not mention some don’t even start. Pay for MSE camp, you get on the list.

      • Coach White says:

        Agree totally %100. LeBron Jr is not even the best in his team let alone the top 2023 player in the country. Mikey Williams is the best player right now in the class of 2023 and destroyed LeBron Jr and every one of his teammates on NCBC when they played Team Thomas in the 2017 Nationals in Charlotte NC. Jr’s #1 ranking is Daddy love all day long. Ask his daddy he was there.

        • Jayhawk says:

          Mikey Williams, yeah right, he reclassified, he must wasn’t that good to stay with class of 2022, that says a lot about his game. I saw he was #105 in coast2coast in class of 2022, but reclassify to 2023, he all of sudden the best, REALLY!

        • BT says:

          This ranking is comedy.. and yes Mikey Williams is a beast on the court.. #1 all the way..

      • Coach Arnold says:

        DC Mayor is spot on! There’s a kid who plays for Georgia Impact 2023 in McDonough GA Aaron Smith 6’2″ averaging almost a triple double. Last week out up 17pts, 20 revs and 15 blocks leading the number one team in GA. Not sure how some of these kids made the list

  3. FriWorld says:

    Barry Tate #15 on this list just balled out at the 2017 Middle School Elite All American game. Hands down the best guard in NC and proved that at the camp he had 21 pts 6 assist 4 steals…Demarris Day played solid too

  4. Doc says:

    I’ve had the opportunity to witnesses #2 Day, #10 Richard and #15 Tate and they’re all authentic and deserve top 10 rankings. The attraction to Richards game is premium on both sides of court, without promotion from my D1 experience

    • TN Titan says:

      Was Tate the left handed guard in the 6th grade division in Ohio?

    • Derik Day says:


      Thanks for your evaluation of my son #2 Day. We will continue to work to get better. We were back in the Monday right after the trip. Thanks again and I will relate the message to him as well.

    • Derik Day says:


      Thanks for your evaluation of my son #2 Day. We will continue to work to get better. We were back in the lab on Monday right after the trip. Thanks again and I will relate the message to him as well.

  5. Lil Red says:

    Casian had the flu and didn’t make it to the camp. He’ll be at the Georgia National Camp in August or catch him at the Jr Phenom 150 Camp in Greensboro this Spring.

  6. Coach says:

    Casian wasn’t at the Camp.

  7. Tbless says:

    The left handed guard was Marquese Josephs from Canada.

  8. Joe Haiden says:

    I think Darrien Russell should be in this list he is a great playmaker and I never seen anything me that has been able to stop his drive. He needs a better team and he would easily be on this list MVP at ballislife camp 2016. Height 5’0 keep an eye on him

  9. From Des Moines as he is balling on 7th graders as a 6th grader! He averages 22 ppg and 7 rpg

  10. Ray says:

    Tyray Bartholomew is the best kept secret in nation 5-7 point guard amazing handles and court vision. watch out for him. he’s from south Louisiana.

    • looking says:

      Who does he play for? Can he go at the Lockett or Singleton kid If so he should be on a notable team not backyard basketball

      • Mother of 4 says:

        Ty’Ray is the real deal! I have several highlights on my Twitter of him. He’s in 8th grade and starting Varsity at his high school! Very talented.

  11. Nick Sayler says:

    You guys should come check out my brother (12 years old, 6th grade) he had 39 of his teams 47 the other day and is lock down on defense. He plays for the South Dakota pentagon organization hope you take him in to consideration

  12. Ga. Real says:

    It’s more to the game than kids just running up and down the court shooting,be real it was only one player that played defense, passed the ball, had the mid range game going, shot the 3 ball from NBA range, in the King Of The Hill kids were scared to line up, if you were there you know who he was big kids , little kids didn’t have a chance, and that Player is from GA. Read the All American Game Recap. The talent in Ga is at the top don’t be fooled!

  13. Michael Hsrtis says:

    Tyler Harris is the best basketball player in the bay area. The is 5’9 and can play all postion

  14. LeBron james says:

    Daniel tuck out of Texas that boy is nice

  15. Lets hope I can make this list later on.
    I’m 12 right now going to become 13 soon

  16. Stymie says:

    Are they going to update the rankings anytime soon?

  17. Landon schumaker says:

    I got ranked number two at John lucas in vegas in front of david delancy. The article was written by clark francis. I have also cooked on Angel in sandiego and anaheim with Az storm and now legion. I was also arizona ebc mvp. And also ranked for best defenders and best big men on your page.

  18. Jaylen Mullen is an extorindary athlete with great handles. He can shoot the lights out of it, mid- range along with 3pt range. He is defiantly in the top 100 players in the class of 2023. He will be playing with HBA Elite 2023 next year and will be teamed up with #58 ranked Peyton Bledsoe. This duo could be something truly great in the making, look out for these two great players next year!

    • The thing with Jaylen is he’s been held back multiple times. The kid could be in the class of 2021 by his birthday. He’s two years older than the majority of kids in the class of 2023. He may dominate because he is so much older than everyone else, but college scouts should take notice of his age.

  19. We Got Film says:

    Young man. You had one bucket in San Diego against RMG. I saw that tall kid kill your squad to the point your parents turned their cameras off. Check the tourney ig to see who was dominant. Lets not lie. There is film also. As someone who sees his teams often, that is the only time you faced him this year, and he dominated your team in the title game.Good player. Good Storm team. Legion too. No need to lie.

  20. Let it Fly says:

    There is a player in south Florida that very few know about, his name is Kellen Cashman. He has been playing travel basketball for a while mainly in south Florida. However, he plays two grades up and you will be seeing him on the national circuit soon. He is the real deal, nickname ” Ice” because he is as calm under pressure you will find. He is at his very best in big moments late in the game. Stay tune….

  21. Hope y’all been looking at the phenom Jasiah shields will be going mead middle school . Go watch him

  22. Mark says:

    Watch out for Bezaleel Abdul 5’9 140 lock down Erie crossover’s best player and and can shoot,pass, and can score like no other just remember the name Bezaleel Abdul

  23. Jayhawk says:

    #12, Hastings kid, I seen him play at few camps, he might be the best pure point guard in the nation. He’s a team player, very strong right and left hand, good defense, he sees the whole floor, can pass and shoot. He pushes the ball all the time, you will hear about him.

  24. Elon Suarez says:

    I believe I am better than most players ranked here. I place my self at #3. Surely I am better than Corry Conner. If I played him 1v1 I would lock him up. Just by watching his highlight video I can lock up his weak dribble moves. If I knew how to get ranked, I would be at #3. 100%

  25. Jakai Franklin says:

    Be on the look out me
    6’1 lanky foward

  26. Derrick Sean says:

    Jacob Meyer is a great player out of Kentucky he is a load too take out
    He is one of the top player in Kentucky and should be national ranked
    He played against the top players at drich tv camp and balled out

  27. Derrick Sean says:

    If you had too add one more person that’s just a suggestion too add

  28. Alex Stanwood says:

    Tyler Mackey CLASS OF 2023! Remember this name!!!

  29. DeAngelo says:

    Datavion Gary up next! Rockford Illinois! Stay tune!#BallIsLife

  30. Kyle says:

    Asad Hall REMEMBER THE NAME CLASS OF 2023!!!

  31. Micheal Newhouse says:

    Emarion Brady is a overal floor general , he had me out their thinking “Lebron James jr who?” Can’t wait to see those 2023 guards match up but if they ever do just know I got my money on Emarion Brady the most slept on guard in the class of 2023 , rank the kid already!

  32. gman says:

    Have you all visited Canada. I know we seems a far way from USA. But there are some ballers in the North that should be on this list.
