HOOPSEEN125: INTRODUCING THE POST-SUMMER CLASS OF 2017

CLASS OF 2017 HOOPSEEN125 RANKINGS
list of rankings: http://www.hoopseen.com/rankings/national/2017

A 6-foot-10 big man with a polished back to the basket game, former Carter is a guy that can have an offense be run through him on the block, a dying breed in today’s new era of basketball. The Peach State native can score the ball over either shoulder, face-up and hit the mid-range jumper, and make the proper pass out of the double-team.

He was a catalyst down low at the U17 World Championships this past June in securing the gold for his USA squad and more than dominated his peers on the Nike EYBL circuit. Running with the Team CP3 bunch, Carter shot over 70-percent from the field while scoring over 16 points and securing 10 boards per contest. Likely to end up at either Duke or Harvard, Carter is the best that there is in 2017 and one of the most sure-fire bets in all of high school basketball.

Falling right behind Carter and nipping at his heels is DeAndre Ayton. Perceived by most as the top prospect at the prep level, Ayton is a concoction of explosiveness, an NBA ready body, ball skills, and an evolving mean streak that makes him a difficult stop from within the half-court.

HOOPSEEN ROUNDTABLE: WHO IS YOUR TOP PROSPECT IN THE 2017 CLASS?

The debate will rage on as to who the best prospect is in all of the 2017 class. After releasing our updated 2017 HoopSeen Top-125 Rankings, Wendell Carter has kept the top dog status thanks to his super-efficient play on the Nike EYBL play and due to securing the gold medal at the U17s this past June. However, the battle remains thanks to the play of DeAndre Ayton, Michael Porter, Mo Bamba, and a few others from the elite crop of prospects within Carter’s class.

We asked our HoopSeen squad, who do you think is the top prospect in 2017 and in stating so, give your case for why they are the best.

Justin Young: I’ve long been a believer in trusting your own eyes when it comes to evaluating talent. “Believe what you see” an old hoop head told me one time. I believe that theory.

Always trust your gut. Your gut is usually right.

Summer Stock-Risers in the Class of 2017

ESPN has announced that they’ll release their updated national rankings next week and New England will follow suit immediately afterward.

Expect to see plenty of movement in these new rankings after a full travel season worth of basketball, but not necessarily at the top of the list as New England’s top ranked prospects did nothing but back-up their reputations in recent months.

Meanwhile other local products – like Andrew Platek, Hasahn French and Wabissa Bede – all lived up to their previous NERR ranking and have now made a name for themselves on the national level.

But who is next in the class of 2017? Here’s a look at five local prospects that came away from this grassroots season as some of New England’s biggest stock-risers:

Ayton remains No. 1 with Porter, Carter gaining

We have been tracking this class for four years. With seven of the top 10 of the latest 2017 ESPN 100 rankings between 6 feet 8 and 7 feet, the sheer size at the top of the class is the strength of this group.

DeAndre Ayton holds on to the top spot, but Michael Porter Jr., Wendall Carter, Mohamed Bamba and Trevon Duvall are not far behind. Ayton had spurts of brilliance this summer along with some dominating performances and his effort certainly has been consistently better. If Ayton continues to improve his effort, his growth in the game will be scary.

Based on his outstanding performances, and enormous potential, Porter moves to No. 2. He was exceptionally strong at the Peach Jam and has elite athletic ability with guard skills and small forward rebounding production. Carter is a combination of scoring, rebounding and shot-blocking talent with alertness and a high basketball IQ.

ESPN Announces Updated 2017 Rankings

ESPN announced a new ESPN 100 on Wednesday morning and, as usual, plenty of New England names made the cut.

Putnam Science Academy guard Hamidou Diallo checks in as the 11th ranked player in the country. One of the nation's most explosive athletes, Diallo had a big summer, which included a quarterfinal apperance in the EYBL Finals, a gold medal with USA Basketball's 18-and-under team and an MVP performance at the Elite 24.

New England's top two point guards, Tremont Waters and Makai Ashton-Langford, check in at 32nd and 33rd on the list. Waters, who will join Notre Dame High School of West Haven this year, is one of the most skilled and offensively gifted lead guards in the class, on par with the likes of Trae Young. Ashton-Langford, who heads to Brewster Academy this fall, distinguishes himself by being able to change the game on both ends and has an unmatched resume of winning games.

New England’s Top 50 of 2017

After a long summer on the grassroots circuit and with the fall recruiting period just a couple of weeks away, we've taken inventory in the class of 2017 beginning with yesterday's release of updated rankings in all six New England states.

Today comes the announcement of the top 50 in the rising senior class, a list which does not yet include incoming prep products.

The top 50 begins with the 7 products who were included in the updated ESPN 100 - Hamidou Diallo, Tremont Waters, Makai Ashton-Langford, Jermaine Samuels, Kimani Lawrence, Christian David and Wabissa Bede.

Yags’ Point Forward - Deeper Look Into 2017 Rankings

The usual suspects remained atop the newest NERR rankings and finished in nearly identical order within the latest national top-100 lists released by ESPN. Hamidou Diallo (#12 in ESPN 100), Tremont Waters (#32), Makai Ashton-Langford (#33), Jermaine Samuels (#46), and Kimani Lawrence (#54) have created some separation from their peers in the Class of 2017.

With 8 total prospects scattered throughout the list, New England was well-represented within the ESPN 100. Wabissa Bede, one of the nation's most productive players throughout the month of July while leading his Mass Rivals squad to a 21-0 record, was also one of the country's biggest risers. Bede was a 3-star recruit heading into the summer and climbed all the way to #87 in the ESPN 100 with his stellar summer. Two Vermont Academy products, Christian David (#83) and Jordan Nwora (#91), round out the New England contingent. Nwora

Vermont Academy: Jordan Nwora commits to Louisville

Postby Tom Nolette » Fri Oct 21, 2016 5:39 am

Vermont’s Nwora is Louisville Bound

Vermont Academy post-graduate Jordan Nwora made a verbal commitment to Louisville and head coach Rick Pitino on Wednesday, announcing his decision via his twitter account.

The 6-foot-7 forward is one of the best shooters throughout the entire country. He converted 39% of his attempts from behind the three-point line while starring with the New York Rens during EYBL play, but beyond that number, he also developed a reputation for being able to make tough shots with a hand in his face. His contributions were a pivotal part of the Rens' run to the Peach Jam quarterfinals.
