Top 2018 center Jordan Brown transfers to Prolific Prep (Calif.)

Jordan Brown is the latest high-profile basketball player to transfer for the coming school year.

The 6-foot-10 center will leave Woodcreek (Roseville, Calif.) for Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.) to finish out his high school career.

Brown, who is ranked No. 3 among centers in the ESPN 100 and No. 30 overall, led the Timberwolves to a 32-3 record and the CIF NorCal Open Division title last season.

Yags’ Point Forward - Deep Dive into 2018 Rankings

An updated version of the 2018 ESPN 100 was unveiled this week, with nine members of New England's 2018 class making the cut. As is the case throughout the year, an updated ESPN 100 also means an updated version of NERR's New England rankings.

After another successful summer on the grassroots circuits, New England prospects saw an overall rise in their recruitment and prospect status. The overwhelming majority of players ranked atop New England's 2018 class either committed to their school of choice, cemented their status as mid-to-high-major prospects, or improved their stock while adding offers to their list and stars by their name.

Here's a deeper look into New England's 2018 Rankings as we head into the prep season:

Making the case: Devon Dotson

One of the most competitive players in the class of 2018, point guard Devon Dotson had as strong a summer as anybody in the country. He's in a strong position for a move to five-star status and this weekend he's taking his second official visit as he works his way towards a decision.

Dotson took his first official visit to Arizona, but the Wildcats are now out after landing a pair of point guards in Jahvon Quinerly and Brandon Williams. This weekend, he heads to Kansas -- where he visited unofficially last season -- to see what Bill Self and the Jayhawks have to offer.

In June, Dotson released a final eight that included Florida, Maryland, Miami, Ohio State, Southern California and Wake Forest to go along with the Wildcats and Jayhawks. In the last week, UCLA tried to jump in with a scholarship offer.

Jaxson Hayes schedules four visits


Jaxson Hayes is another breakout performer from the July evaluation periods that has asserted his standing as a national, high-major prospect. A 6-foot-10 center that has grown close to six inches within the past two years, Hayes has set his first two official visit dates and two others trips that he will come in the unofficial variety.

Class of ’18: No. 1 Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) wing R.J. Barrett

...Good luck finding any player, in any class, from any circuit, who has a better resume over the last six months than R.J. Barrett.

First, he was named MVP of the prestigious Basketball Without Borders event during NBA All-Star Weekend in February. Then he averaged 25 points and eight rebounds a game at the DICK’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals and led Montverde (Montverde, Fla.) all the way to the title game where they eventually fell to La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.). The Eagles finished ranked No. 7 overall in the USA Today Super 25.

After that, the 6-foot-7 wing, led the Nike EYBL, widely regarded as the country’s most competitive circuit, in scoring, averaging 28 points per game for UPlay Canada.

Class of ’18: No. 2 Spartanburg Day (Spartanburg, S.C.) wing Zion Williamson

...It’s hard to say which is more impressive: The fact that Zion Williamson is the most famous high school athlete in the country, maybe ever, or that he lives up to that hype virtually every time he steps on to the hardwood.

As John Carroll’s (Bel Air, Md.) five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley put it, “It’s not hype at all; Zion is real.”

If the old sports cliché that “numbers don’t lie” is true, than Quickley’s claim would be hard to argue.

Last season, Williamson averaged 36.8 points and 13 rebounds to lead his team to its second consecutive independent schools association Class 2A state title.

Wake Forest lands impact forward Jaylen Hoard

A major focus for Danny Manning and his staff at Wake Forest for the 2018 class has been landing frontcourt difference makers. They landed their first one on Saturday with the addition of Jaylen Hoard.

Born and raised in France, the 6-foot-8 forward moved to North Carolina as a junior and announced on Saturday that he'll play his college ball for Manning at Wake. An unofficial visit on Thursday sealed the deal after he got more time with Manning and assistant coach Randolph Childress.

"Me and my family had talked about it and I told them I felt like I was ready to make a decision before my season because I wanted to focus on school," Hoard told Rivals.com. "I kind of had the idea that I wanted to go to Wake Forest and I just wanted my dad to see campus. once we got over there and saw they had everything in place I was ready to make my decision
