After strong consideration and weighing both potential and production we decided that Hamidou Diallo as the #1 player in the class of 2017. The 6’4 do it all wing has consistently produced at the highest level no matter the competition.
#2 Tremont Waters pound for pound has to be one of the best guards in the country, now standing at 6’0 Waters can do it all. A prospect to keep a close eye on as he continues to prove everyone wrong, size doesn’t matter.
#3 Jermaine Samuels has as high of a ceiling as anyone. Combine that with his athletic ability and you have a big time prospect. Samuels was sidelined do to injury, which is most of the reason why he has dropped
#4 Kimani Lawrence passes the look test and has shown that he has the total package of playing at the highest level. When its all said and done could possibly become a challenge for the # 1 spot in the class.
#5 Maki Ashton Langford will run the show for Cushing Academy. The athletic guard, who knows how to get to the rim, has developed a pass first mentally, which will help his overall game. With an improved jump shot, he has the makings of a big time prospect.
