NERR Rankings Primer: New England States'

Rankings Primer
New England Recruiting Report

...In there lies sometimes the biggest misconception. We are not ranking, nor have we ever, the best high school or grassroots players, we are ranking the best prospects, which can sometimes be very different. It requires an understanding of the next level, the ways in which the game is different, and what qualities and attributes most often translate. Even at that, it is an inexact science, one in which evaluators are not measured by whether or not they make mistakes, but by the amount of mistakes they make relative to others.

So when rankings begin to be published, please keep in mind that it is about a glimpse into the feature, not a measuring stick of the past.

Please also note that our post-summer rankings will not include incoming prep products if they have not yet played in New England prior to this season. Those players will be added following the fall when we'll again visit various prep schools and attend various events throughout the region.

Rhode Island 2018 Rankings Announced

he most anti-climactic news in Rhode Island is that Cole Swider remains the top prospect in the state.

The 6-foot-8 forward is coming off a big EYBL season with BABC in which he committed to Villanova despite earning an offer from Duke. He’s an elite shooter of the basketball but has also improved his athleticism and versatility. In short, he’s the runaway pick for #1 and it isn’t close.

The race begins at #2 where Bishop Hendricken wing Tyrone Weeks not only defended his spot, but more importantly solidified himself as a scholarship caliber player this summer with Metro Boston. His length and elastic frame give him a very clear physical upside as he continues to fill out his frame, but he’s also proven himself an active defender and high level slasher.

Maine 2018 Rankings Announced

Updated 2018 rankings begin in the state of Maine where the vast majority of the state’s top players have given themselves every opportunity to be measured against top competition from New England and beyond this summer.

Gould Academy wing Jahbril Price-Noel has retained his spot as the top prospect in the state after his summer with Expressions. A multi-positional player who stands at 6-foot-7, the Canadian native is really only just beginning to tap into his potential and should have his best basketball very clearly still in front of him. He holds a collection of offers ranging from the Ivy League to the Atlantic 10 and should be capable of adding new schools to that mix as well as he continues to polish his skill set and establish a niche for himself.

New Hampshire 2018 Rankings Announced

While it was certainly a busy summer, not much has changed atop the class of 2018 in the state of New Hampshire.

That is certainly about to change though as this will be the last set of rankings without incoming prep products that are on their way to not just Brewster Academy but also New Hampton, Tilton, Phillips Exeter, Kimball Union Academy, and more.

Tilton and Expressions guard Marcus Zegarowski leads the local products returning to New Hampshire as he has retained his #1 rankings while living up to the top ten status that he’s held for over a year now. He’s skilled and cerebral but what really sets him apart is his drive as he’s as motivated a player as there is in New England. That’s also a recipe worth betting on long-term as Zegarowski prepares to choose from among his final four of Ohio State, Creighton, Washington, and Minnesota.

Shittu Dominates Small Vermont 2018 Class

Vermont’s class of 2018 is regretfully less deep than their other New England counterparts.

That isn’t to say that they don’t have quality pieces in the local state association, because they certainly do with the likes of both BFA St. Albans forward Jens Ulrich-Verderber and Burlington guard Kevin Garrison in 2018, but that we haven’t seen players from the Green Mountain State distinguish themselves outside their states borders with the same frequency with which we have those from Maine, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.

The Memorial Day Super 16 was certainly one exception when Lone Wolf had a strong showing against good competition allowing players like Ulrich-Verderber to prove themselves and earn their just recognition.

Connecticut 2018 Rankings Announced

Quite a bit has changed in Connecticut since we last updated our 2018 rankings. Filip Petrusev, who would have been a candidate for the top overall spot, has transferred to Montverde Academy in Florida, while Dimon Carrigan has arrived from Cambridge Rindge and Latin for his post-graduate year at Woodstock Academy.

The changes haven’t been only due to the prep school waiver wire though as a number of players – Cantavio Dutreil, Tyler Bourne, and Matt Verretto among others – have emerged in recent months while others haven’t been able to evolve at quite the same rate.

BABC's Carrigan takes over the top spot in the state for the time being thanks to his unmatched defensive prowess and special ability to protect the rim but South Kent guard Anthony Nelson is closely on his heels after a big summer of his ...

Mass 2018 Class Sets the Bar in New England

Massachusetts is the class of New England in 2018.

The core of Cormac Ryan, Nate Laszewski, A.J. Reeves, and David Duke have all earned their choice of high-major suitors. Ryan and Reeves came off the board early to Stanford and Providence respectively while Duke has been ascending quickly for the last year and Laszewski re-asserted himself as a national priority this summer.

So how do you assess the group against each other?

Right now, that’s a question that is going to ignite a variety of passionate responses. The reality though is that there isn’t an easy answer, precisely because they have yet to really separate themselves.

Updated New England & National Rankings Announced = Class of 2018

Over the course of the last week we’ve rolled out updated rankings for the incoming senior class one state at a time.

Now, it is time to put those together in one consolidated New England list. The current rankings include 60 prospects but do not yet include incoming prep products who did not play within our state’s borders last year.

These rankings also come after spending the entire month on the road, but remember, rankings are based first and foremost on projecting future levels, not rating the quality of the performances we’ve seen to date.
