Best of 2015 Class in Mass
With updated rankings almost now complete in the classes of 2013 and 2014, we begin to turn our attention to the class of 2015.
Rankings prospects so early in their high school careers is tricky business since you’re projecting out almost three years. At this stage, prospects are just in the crystallizing stages of who they’ll become and so we’re searching for early indications of their physical and mental upsides.
Ultimately, the younger a group of prospects are, the more uncertainty there is, and so while our updated rankings are sure to spark some controversy in 2015, the one thing that is very hard to argue with the current sophomore class is that the state of Massachusetts seems to have a surplus on the talent.
With talent in both the prep and public leagues, the state is simply loaded in 2015. With Jalen Adams, Jashanti Allen, Chris Baldwin, Djery Baptiste, Greg Bridges, A.J. Brodeur, Bruce Brown, Curtis Cobb, Daquon Ervin, Aaron Falzon, Juwan Gooding, Lavar Harewood, Brendan Hill, B.J. Martin, Aaron McLean, Collin McManus, Luis Montero, Marcel Pettway, Jarred Reuter, Tyree Robinson, Jordan Scurry, Josh Sharma, Andrew Simpson, David Watkins, Tyree Weston, and numerous others the class has the type of star power and depth that no other state in New England can match up with.
Moreover, the biggest question isn’t necessarily how these prospects rank against each other, but how they collectively rank with some of the best classes to come through New England in recent years.
With two and a half years of work left to do, what’s certain is that this is a group that has a chance to bring New England, and the state of Massachusetts specifically, back to the forefront of the national recruiting landscape.
