2015 Rankings Announced
Updated rankings have been released in New England’s 2015 class and atop the class there is a group of prospects who could all end up vying for the number one ranking before it’s all said and done.
Tilton guard Terance Mann, ranked 40th in the country by the ESPN 60, begins the season ranked 1st overall in New England. A six-foot-five jack of all trades, Mann is arguably the most versatile player in the class, not just because he can play three different positions, but also because of the various ways he can help his team win games on both ends of the floor.
Cushing Academy guard Jalen Adams is the region’s second ranked junior. Arguably the best overall scorer in the class, Adams should be poised to contend for the top spot after adding another couple inches to his frame in recent months.
Northfield Mount Hermon big man Josh Sharma is ranked third after his successful summer. Nearly seven-feet tall with incredible speed and athleticism for his size, Sharma may be the best long-term prospect in the class and so he’s another guy who could certainly make a run at #1.
Fourth ranked Donovan Mitchell has made as much noise as any junior this fall since arriving at Brewster Academy. If he can continue to perform at the same level during the upcoming season, he’s bound to climb up these rankings as well.
Another member of the NMH frontline, Aaron Falzon, checks in at the fifth spot. The six-foot-eight forward looks poised to emerge as one of the top scoring threats at NMH this season, and will consequently have his opportunity to climb the ladder as well.
Brewster Academy big man Jarred Reuter is currently ranked sixth in New England, but the rest of the class should be put on notice that the big fella looks to be in the best shape of his high school career and out to prove a point this coming season.
Next up is New Hampton big man Jeremy Miller, who like Reuter, looks poised for a big season. The six-foot-nine forward seems to now be turning potential into production, both becoming more physical inside while also utilizing his perimeter skill.
Wilbraham & Monson guard Curtis Cobb has played his way up into the top eight spots after his breakout summer and consequent high-major offers while St. Joseph’s swingman Arkel Ager is another prospect on the rise after a productive month of July.
A group of frontcourt players are all battling it out for the final spot in the top ten and we’ll be watching to see who emerges this season as Tabor’s Jesse Bunting, Worcester’s Nick Pasquale, Wilbraham & Monson’s Joe Schneider, Bloomfield’s Tyrique Jones, Norwalk’s Steve Enoch, Nobles’ B.J. Martin, and Springfield Central’s Chris Baldwin are all in the next tier of prospects.
Consistent with all NERR pre-season rankings, players who are in their first season in New England are not yet eligible and so we'll see the debut of guys like Tyler Lydon and others when we update these rankings in a few months.
In total, we’ve ranked the top 30 prospects in New England’s 2015 class, while also identifying the best prospects in all six New England states. While Mann, Adams, and Ager take those titles in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Connecticut respectively, Rice’s James Wells takes the top spot in Vermont followed by St. Andrew’s Chancellor Ellis in Rhode Island and Houlton’s Kyle Bouchard in Maine.
