NERR Prospect Database Updated
Differentiating between the number of players who claim they’re “going prep” and the number of guys who have actually solidified plans for such a move are two entirely different things.
History has shown that inevitably the number of graduating seniors who claim they’re headed for a post-graduate year in the spring inevitably turns out to be much smaller by the time the summer comes to a close.
It’s for that very reason that we at the New England Recruiting Report wait to update our prospect directory until the summer has played out and we have a chance to decipher between reported and confirmed moves.
With that in mind, today we will update the NERR player directory to reflect LOCAL players who are both joining the class of 2012 by virtue of a post-graduate year as well as players who are reclassifying to either 2013, 2014 or 2015.
Following the directory update, we will wrap up the summer by releasing our updated rankings, beginning in the class of 2012 and then working our way down to 2013.
Rankings in the 2014 and 2015 classes will not be announced until after the New England Elite 75 Showcase – Frosh/Soph Edition on September 17th.
Of course, September will also mark the beginning of our annual prep swing as we tour the region’s top post-graduate programs to both preview the upcoming season as well as provide first hand analysis of top new prospects arriving on the scene.
