Updated NERR 2015 Rankings Announced
Just five days after ESPN updated their national rankings in the class of 2015, NERR is following suit.
New England was well represented in the ESPN 100. Jalen Adams led the way at 33rd overall after finishing his portion of the Adidas Gauntlet schedule ranked in the top five in both scoring and assists.
There was a group of local products jammed packed into the second half of the hundred beginning with Tyler Lydon at 59th. Josh Sharma, Donovan Mitchell, and Terance Mann find themselves clustered between 72 and 78 while A.J. Turner is at 82 coming off his big spring season and subsequent offers from the likes of Michigan State. Aaron Falzon rounded out the local representation at 97 while the likes of Jarred Reuter, Steve Enoch, Curtis Cobb, and Jeremy Miller were all right on the cusp.
That core group of players headlines the updated NERR rankings, which includes expanded lists in all six states as well as the top 30 players in the rising senior class.
It is important to note that players were listed according to the school and class which they were part of during the current academic year. In other words, players set to reclassify to the class of 2016 are still listed in the 2015 class. Similarly, graduated seniors who plan to do a post-graduate year, have not yet been added to the 2015 class.
Those changes will have dramatic implications on these rankings moving forward. Tyrique Jones and Wenyen Gabriel were two of the biggest stock risers in New England this spring and both plan to join the 2016 class next season. B.J. Martin is the most recent to join that list as he will be reclassifying at Tilton next year according to a recent press release. There are also numerous others rumored to be headed to the prep ranks, but not yet confirmed.
In addition to Jones and Gabriel, some of the other most notable risers in the most recent rankings include: Steven Enoch who takes over as the top ranked player in Connecticut; Jackson Donahue who has had a tremendous spring AAU season; Tyree Robinson who continues to prove his ability against the highest levels of competition; and Nicholas Mayo who takes over the top spot in Maine after his breakout spring.
Stay tuned to the New England Recruiting Report next week for updated rankings in the classes of 2016 and 2017 followed by the release of the inaugural ELITE 75 rankings.
