247Sports Updated 2023 Rankings
247Sports came out with their updated top 150 national rankings for the 2023 class last week. The list featured a number of New England prospects.
It began with Brewster Academy & Expressions Elite forward Matas Buzelis at 7. He is coming off an impressive spring being one of the main playmakers for a 10-3 Expressions squad that is first in Nike EYBL’s Pool D.
Putnam Science Academy & New York Jayhawks big man Ugonna Kingsley, who has proven himself to be one of the top rim protectors in the nation is next at 23. Right behind him at 24 is Springfield Commonwealth & Rhode Island Elite big man Isaiah Miranda, who continues to show intriguing long-term potential with his inside-out skills.
Coming in at 38 is Taylor Bowen, a forward who is a teammate of Buzelis at Brewster and Expressions. He has been making his presence felt on the glass, being one of the top rebounders in the EYBL. Worcester Academy and BABC power forward TJ Power earned the 55 spot, showing a smooth stroke from deep and good vision as a passer this spring.
Recent Rutgers commit and Kingswood Oxford/Expressions Elite small forward Gavin Griffiths is next at 62. He missed the majority of the spring with injury but had a strong first weekend back at the Louisville EYBL session. Griffiths played a key role helping his team go 4-1, averaging 13.2 points and hitting 14 three-pointers at a 38% clip.
One of the biggest risers was Brewster Academy & Middlesex Magic big man JP Estrella who earned the 66 spot. His ability to space the floor from deep at his size, while also making it very difficult for opponents to score at the rim was a central reason why Middlesex won the Under Armour Association Spring Championship.
Tre Norman from Worcester Academy & BABC made the top 100, coming in at the 98 spot. The aggressive scoring guard put constant pressure on defenses in the EYBL this spring slashing to the rim, in addition to being a very good rebounder for his size. Norman’s BABC teammate Reid Ducharme who attends Brewster Academy slotted in at 120. The small forward has shown he is much more than just a shooter over the course of the high school/grassroots season.
The other New England contingents who made the list were Brewster Academy and New York Rens wing Aaron Clark at 114, Putnam Science Academy and PSA Cardinals forward Mouhamed Dioubate at 138, along with South Kent School and New York Rens big man Papa Kante at 142.
