#RealTalk - Adults are being Evaluated too

Posted Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Five-and-a-half years ago, during the first week of the July live period, I was attending the Hoop Group Elite Camp.  As I often do, I was sitting with college coaches, watching camp games for the better part of 14 hours. During those long days the subject of conversation can vary but typically topics include the quality of play we're watching to the prospects and often those associated with the prospects.  This particular day wasn't that uncommon. There were some adults,… READ MORE >

Mid-Season Report: New England 2021

Posted Thursday, February 21st, 2019

In recent weeks we’ve sifted through the classes of 2019 and 2020 to update rankings, recognize stock-risers, top prospects, and new names to know. Now it’s time to shift our attention to the sophomore class of 2021. As we’ve said countless times, ranking prospects is subjective to begin with, but when you’re ranking them this young, there’s even more margin for error. One of the reasons why rankings, regardless of the source, are often so controversial is because not everybody… READ MORE >

After breaking down the top prospects, recent risers, and new names to know in all six states, it's now time to put them all together and update New England's 2020 rankings.  This junior class had a reputation of not being quite as talented near the top as some of its predecessors, but as is almost always the case, new players are continuing to emerge with each passing week and collectively this is now a class that is shaping up to… READ MORE >

2020 Mid-Season Recap Summary

Posted Saturday, February 16th, 2019

Over the course of the last week we've gone through all six New England states, not just to update rankings and identify top prospects but also to recognize recent stock-risers (prospects who have taken their game and subsequent recruitment to new levels this season), new names to know (most likely because they are in their first season in New England), and top local prospects (versus those who may be playing at a boarding school in the state).  On Monday, we'll… READ MORE >

Posted Friday, February 15th, 2019

Today we'll wrap-up our mid-season reports in the class of 2020 with a look at Rhode Island and Vermont, two states which are similar in terms of both the amount of talent in their state association as well as having one historically dominant prep school.  Vermont Academy has produced more division I players in the last decade than the rest of the state combined. More accurately, they've produced many times more division I players than the rest of the state… READ MORE >

Posted Wednesday, February 13th, 2019

With mid-season reports now completed for the 2020 class in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, we'll turn our attention north to the state of Maine.  After consecutive strong classes in the local ranks, the local junior class has yet to reveal the same depth or talent, at least beyond the borders of their home state.  That has opened the door for a list of prep school products to dominate the list with Hyde, Lee Academy, and Bridgton Academy all featuring… READ MORE >

With mid-season updates now completes in the junior classes of both Connecticut and Massachusetts, it's time to extend our lens into New Hampshire.  The basketball landscape in the Granite State has always been one dominated by prep schools and while that hasn't changed in recent years, what has changed is the time when those prep prospects arrive.  It used to be that the major influx came with post-graduates. With NCAA eligibility standards changing over the years though, more and more… READ MORE >

After breaking down the junior class in Connecticut a week ago, it's now time to turn our focus to the state of Massachusetts.  The Bay State has similar depth to the Nutmeg State as we have ranked 20 prospects in both classes while there are inevitably others who will compete for scholarships in the upcoming year-and-a-half.  Worcester Academy leads the way with four of the top 20 ranked juniors in Massachusetts while MacDuffie has three. After that though, there isn't another… READ MORE >
