Rankings Update

5 Mar

Akron Buchtel’s Chris Livingston is one of the headliners of our 2022 Watch List.

With District Finals week underway in the state of Ohio, the majority of high school basketball teams have already been eliminated from this year’s State Tournament. With that in mind, it’s time for the latest update to our Triple Double Prospect player rankings.

Today we’ll be looking at all four high school classes, with in-depth rankings by position for the current seniors, current juniors and current sophomores, as well as our introductory watch list for the current freshman (which, as always, will be sorted alphabetically).

These lists are sure to evolve as the circuit season in April rapidly approaches; however, for now, we’re comfortable that our lists contain the best of the best of current college basketball prospects playing in the state of Ohio.

For those wondering about prospects from Spire Academy and/or ISA Osborne Academy (a pair of prep schools out of the Cleveland are), please note that we limited our rankings to players who have or are currently participating with OHSAA member schools.

The classes of 2019 and 2020 have already been pretty well defined with the prospect ranking pecking order before this update; but we’ve still seen movement nonetheless. Players like Cleveland Brush’s Andre Harris have taken big steps in their final season’s of high school ball; while North Carolina transfer Jaelyn Withers of Cleveland Heights makes his rankings debut near the top of the 2019 class. In 2020, Wyoming’s Evan Prater and Mentor Lake Catholic’s duo of Luke Frazier and Luka Eller all made big jumps, rising to the top of their perspective position groups.

As for who made the list among underclassmen, there was movement within every position group in each class; however, the biggest shakeup would have to be the 2021 class, where several new names debut on this site. Prospects such as London’s Trey Woodyard have burst onto the scene this year; while previously ranked prospects such as Cincinnati Aiken’s Jakada Stone and Lakota East’s Nate Johnson are ascending rapidly up our lists.

With our 2022 watch list, almost every name is new; as only a select few freshmen have been mentioned in our event recaps throughout the high school season. Prospects such as Akron Buchtel’s Chris Livingston, North Canton Hoover’s Sencere Harris and Cincinnati Hughes’ Paul McMillan IV have gained statewide recognition as top 2022’s; but that list should only continue to grow, as we see 2022 as a class with several high-end talents.
