Just like every year players find ways to move up the ranking board and some make a name for themselves and get in the rankings. There are other cases when players finally get a chance to get some varsity minutes and make an impact that places them on the radar. Utah like most states have players move in and out of the state that could also cause a lot of movement in the rankings. The best example this year is #2 prospect in the Class of 2021 Nolan Hickman Nolan Hickman 6'2" | PG Wasatch Academy | 2021 State UT makes the move to Utah as he will attend Wasatch Academy. Nolan is a 4 star highly recruited point guard that has offers from the likes of Kentucky and Arizona.
Previously 6’7 Dallin Grant Dallin Grant 6'8" | SF Cedar City | 2021 State #212 Nation UT (Cedar/Utah Prospects) has ranked in the #1 slot. Since then we have had some players like Ethan Potter Ethan Potter 6'8" | SF Layton | 2021 State #194 Nation UT (Layton) and Jake Wahlin Jake Wahlin 6'8" | SF Timpview | 2021 State #150 Nation UT (Timpview) really make some noise that has attracted those high major programs.
There has also been some notable players like Jaden Brownell Jaden Brownell 6'8" | SF Alta | 2021 State UT , Carter Welling Carter Welling 6'10" | PF Corner Canyon | 2021 State UT and Noa Gonsalves Noa Gonsalves 6'2" | PG Lehi | 2021 State UT that have increased their stock to solidify their rankings.
Wasatch Academy will also add to it’s 2021 class with the addition of Robbie Armbrester Robbie Armbrester 6'6" | SF Wasatch Academy | 2021 State #196 Nation UT another 4-star SF.
The class of 2021 in Utah has a lot of talented players that could play at the next level. There are to great basketball players near the top that will likely play football at the division 1 level but that can also hoop. Isaac Vaha Isaac Vaha 6'6" | PF Pleasant Grove | 2021 State UT (Pleasant Grove) and Parker Buchanan Parker Buchanan 6'7" | SF Box Elder | 2021 State UT (Box Elder).
The list is deep and regardless of their rank players like Talon Valdes Talon Valdes 6'0" | PG Juan Diego | 2021 State UT , Jordan Toscano Jordan Toscano 6'1" | PG Bingham | 2021 State UT , Trace Ross Trace Ross 6'3" | PG Corner Canyon | 2021 State UT and Keegan Munson Keegan Munson 6'6" | CG Desert Hills | 2021 State UT are all players that can really make an impact at their respective levels when it’s all said and done.
In regards to sleeper prospects you should keep an eye out for players like 6’7 Juan Carlos Camargo Juan Carlos Camargo 6'7" | SF Provo | 2021 State UT (Provo), Kobe Schriber Kobe Schriber 5'10" | CG Roy | 2021 State UT (Roy), Makiah Tarver (Judge Memorial) and Isaac Finlinson Isaac Finlinson 6'6" | CG Dixie | 2021 State UT (Dixie). Each one of these players could really have a season that cannot be ignored by college coaches.
The list goes on as the 2021 class is deep. It goes without saying that the #1 spot will go to a player that is big time in the next re-ranking.
