Over the last month the rankings for the classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018 have each been updated after their play this summer. Here we look at a cross class reference point to see how they stack up against each other in our “Overall Prospect Rankings.” This is a look at prospects #6 – #10.
#6 PG Nojel Eastern (Evanston _ 2017)
Eastern suffered a serious injury in the spring, but is recovering very well and is ready for a monster season. The point guard has tremendous size to see over the defense and be a playmaker with the ball in his hands. He can both score and pass from the lead guard spot. At the end of the day he is a great leader and people want to follow him.
#7 SG DaÍMonte Williams (Peoria Manual _ 2017)
Williams saw his stock soar in the spring and summer with the Mac Irvin Fire 16U. The athletic and rangy combo guard knows how to get in the lane where he can score getting to the rim, pull up with a sweet looking jumper, or dish to an open teammate. Sky is the limit for the Manual guard!
#8 PG Charlie Moore (Morgan Park _ 2016)
Moore is the top 2016 prospect on the list. The dynamic point guard improved his assist/turnover ratio while putting up monster numbers on the Nike EYBL circuit. He will be one of the favorites for Mr. Basketball this season.
#9 SG Zack Norvell (Simeon _ 2016)
Norvell is a smooth scoring lefty that has improved his all-around game over the last year. The senior handles it well in traffic and lets it fly from deep! If Simeon takes home the 4A crown he will have to lead the way.
#10 Charles Payton (Bloomington _ 2017)
Payton has significant upside with his size at 6’6” and elite athleticism. The Bloomington junior changes the game on both ends of the floor. Offensively he attacks the rim with authority and defensively he guards multiple positons and blocks shots.
