The 2024 rankings for the state have been released. Let’s take a look at the shake-up that occurred in the top 10.
School: Westminster Christian Academy
Chase has made some significant jumps in his game over the off-season, which is the reason why he comes in as the #2-ranked player in the 2024 class. He had a strong emergence in his ability to score the rock in a variety of ways, especially off the bounce. He is really polishing his game and getting ready for life on the next level. Outside of continuing to improve his game, he has his sight on leading his Westminister squad to a state championship this season. If you look at his Instagram, you will see that he is being highly recruited, and I truly believe that he has yet to see just how many programs will come calling. Chase’s versatility on both ends of the floor is just one reason he is so attractive to coaches at the next level. Coupled with the fact that he is a multi-level scorer makes him a prospect not to pass on. He moved up from the #5-ranked player in the state and now sits as the #2-ranked player.

One word that surrounds Cam’s game is MOTOR. He is a force to be reckoned with, and he never stops coming. Playing against him is like trying to resist winds from a category 5 hurricane. He plays hard every moment he is on the court, yet, while talking about his style of play, I have to mention that he is extremely skilled. He has the ability to step out and facilitate the offense and keep his team in a good offensive flow. He is highly athletic, finishes above the rim, and is relentless on the glass. His stock continues to increase, as you see here in our rankings, that he jumped from the #12-ranked player to the #5-ranked player in his class.

Spence Sims (6’0/PG)
School: Fairhope HS
Spence is a big guard whose bread and butter is shooting the rock. I know a lot of talk is often given to(Mountain Brook) and (Helena) as being the top shooters in this class and possibly the state. Truth be told, Spence should be mentioned in the conversation along with Ty and Josh. He can absolutely stroke the rock, baby! He is a PG that knows how to orchestrate an offense. His stock has increased over the off-season, which is why he has jumped 11-spots from #17 to the #6-ranked player in his class.

The biggest question surrounding Caleb right now is how tall he is really. Truthfully that is an inside joke that Caleb and I have going on. For quite some time, I have been listing him as 6’7, and he is extremely vehement in telling me that he is 6’9 and, on good days, 6’9 1/4. One thing that we do not have questions about is Caleb’s game on the floor. He continues developing his game and is becoming one of, if not the best, back-to-basket post players in the state. On top of that, he is expanding his game to the perimeter and is developing his mid-range J, along with his ability to take his defender off the bounce. He moves up from the #10-ranked player to the #7-ranked player, and of all the guys listed in the top 10, what he is doing with his game shows that he possibly has the most potential to develop. Many are talking about Ja’Mari Arnold and, but if Huntsville HS is going to bring home the trophy, Caleb will have a lot to say about it.

, III (6’2/SG)
School: Keith HS
Tommy is also a player in the top 10 that has had a very impressive off-season. He has visited several camps and has played exceptionally well, resulting in his stock increasing. Everyone knows that he is a prolific scorer, but he is showing so much more with his game. His ability to handle the rock has been an area of opportunity for him, and it showed that he has been putting in work in that area. He showed his ability to facilitate, to create off the bounce, and be a setup man for teammates. As he continues to develop in those areas, his game will continue to increase, and questions that college coaches may have will indeed be answered. If you have followed my writings, you know my take on T3’s ability to score the rock, but going forward, we have to see the evolution of his game beyond scoring, and so far, he has been showing the development. He breaks into the top 10 by moving up 7-spots from #15 to #8.
