Final 2024 Rankings for Connecticut

The 2023/2024 season has been wrapped up for some time now, so we thought it was definitely time to finish up the 2024 class rankings. After running through the smaller states last week, here’s a look at the state of Connecticut.


The Top


Cincinnati-commit and top 50 prospect Tyler Betsey is the clear pick for the number one spot. Betsey is a two-time Gatorade player of the year winner for CT and part of a dynamic duo (with London Jemison) that took St. Thomas More on a run this season.


Arkansas State-commit Justin Johnson comes in at two after a season of dominating the region. His recruitment was surprising, but at the end of the day fit looks seamless.


Bridgeport’s Stefano Alesso follows at third as the big man’s paint touch and floor stretching ability are taking him to Stetson next year. Pitbull guard Nate Guerengomba was an early UMass-commit and looks to be a player who will earn some big minutes down the line for Coach Martin’s Minutemen. Rounding out the top-five is Quinnipiac-commit Grant Randall who has one of the highest upside’s of the group.




South Kent and Drexel-commit Clemson Edomwonyin is still getting accustomed to the game and has undoubtable upside. He will be a player to watch as his NCAA career unfolds. He holds the 14th spot.


By far the most under-the-radar prospect in  New England, Victor Payne, announced his commitment to St. Francis (PA). Payne has freak athleticism, acrobatic finishing abilities and a blossoming game. The Cromwell Tech product quietly put together an amazing high school career. He checks in  at 21.


Shane Cercone is one of the top remaining unsigned prospects on the board at 26. The 6’6” wing had a great postgrad year and is a player coaches should be checking in on at this point in the cycle.


Some CT Natives Staying Closeby


Najimi George (33) announced his commitment to the University of New Haven. The big guard caught lots of buzz for loads of time as he brings stellar defense, finishes above the rim and is the ultra competitor.


Abdur Rahman-Deleon (43) generated buzz from the moment he entered high school and was a contributor to the success of St. Thomas More this season. He will be moving up to Vermont to plat at St. Michael’s.


Cameron Perkins (50) just recently committed to UMass Boston after capping off a tremendous career at Danbury HS. Perkins will be a great player in the LEC as he brings extreme physicality, relentless finishing ability and is up there as one of the best communicators on the court.
