New England 2020 Rankings Finalized
After rolling out 2020 rankings state-by-state last week, today it's time to take a look at the collective New England region.
We've only ranked 30 players for the time being, but that's just scratching the surface as there are numerous others who have a chance to earn a free education before it is all said and done.
The list has already evolved quite a bit from when it initially debuted last September. What can the movement be attributed to?
The players who currently sit atop the rankings balance current production, at the highest levels of competition, with still untapped upside. Prospects who may be starting to fall are ones whose initial talent wasn't necessarily over-rated but who have been, in many cases, plagued by inconsistent effort, bad body language, and an inconsistent impact on winning.
To be clear, we are projecting the best prospects for the next level, not assessing who had the best grassroots season, but physical tools without winning intangibles is a recipe for underachieving at any level. You have to have translatable size, skill, and physical tools for the next level, but you also need the work ethic, maturity, humility, and desire to maximize those tools.
