2014 New England Rankings Announced

New Hampton's Noah Vonleh is among a handful of players in the country with a legitimate shot at being called the nation’s best in the class of 2014, and so it should come as no surprise that Vonleh is the top ranked prospect in New England’s rising junior class. 

The second spot belongs to another forward with similarly limitless upside.  Chris McCullough is currently ranked within the top 20 prospects in the ESPN Super 60, but there are far fewer players with more sheer talent than this long and athletic forward with developing skill.  

Goodluck Okonoboh, the most recent addition to the class, currently sits in the third spot.  Okonoboh had just made his debut in the ESPN 100 before reclassifying back to 2014, and as we stated yesterday, has to be considered among the premier shot-blockers in the national class.

Abdul-Malik Abu is currently the nation’s 47th ranked prospect in the ESPN Super 60 following his breakout summer and that status has him sitting as the fourth best prospect in New England.  His grassroots running mate, Jared Terrell, is a spot behind at 5th in New England and 49th in the ESPN 60.  

Kaleb Joseph is the top point guard in New England rising junior class after continuing to distinguish himself on the national Adidas circuit this summer.  Paschal Chukwu is another player who took his game to another level this summer, and he checks in at 7.  

The trio of Jacquil Taylor, Alec Brennan, and Matt Cimino continue to be clustered together, and right now all three find themselves within the top ten ranked prospects in New England.  

In total the updated New England 2014 rankings include 25 prospects.  The lists includes: other big men like Kerem Kanter, Sem Kroon, and Bonzie Colson among others; a pair of swingmen in Quincy McKnight and Damion Smith; and a group of guards that includes Jeff Spellman, Makai Mason, Dimitri Floras, Aaron Calixte, Cane Broome, Dustin Cole and more.
