The 2025 class has a lot of talent in it and there are already 10 Sophomores in the state with D1 offers before their 16u AAU seasons. Here’s a look at the top ten players in the updated rankings.
Jasper is a long and athletic point guard whose shooting range extends well past the NBA three point line. Johnson is ranked in the top 30-50 in every major national ranking for 2025s and will take part in Team USA tryouts next weekend. At 6’5, Johnson has the potential to be a pro down the line. For now, he needs to work on getting stronger and becoming a better finisher through contact.
Malachi is another prospect who has found his name among top 50 lists put together for the 2025 class. Moreno is a high level rim protector and rebounder. He has some offensive skill and I’ve seen him make threes outside of the Great Crossing offensive structure. Long term, Moreno has the size that you cannot teach and potential to be one of the best bigs in the 2025 class, nationally.
Walker, like Moreno and Johnson, has a long offer list already full of high major schools and plenty of college suitors. EJ has a big spring and summer of AAU ahead of him as he has the opportunity to show coaches that he can be a 3 man in college. EJ is skilled and an excellent passer. His numbers in his Sophomore season won’t jump out at you but he has a ton of potential, long term.
The second of our top 10 to hail from Great Crossing, Dawson is a smooth perimeter scorer who is highly skilled and plays hard. Vince is a true three level scorer who has shown he can be really efficient and get hot in a hurry. At 6’5, Vince has the physical stature to be a MM+ or HM wing as long as he shows coaches he can guard that position in college. He also possesses high level vision and passing.
JuJu is one of the most consistent players in Louisville, regardless of class. You know what you’re going to get from Edmonds every game out. He plays hard and with a high IQ. He’s still working to become a true wing prospect as his home is often on the block in high school games. Edmonds did show more confidence in his jump shot this season and is an above average defender on the ball and guarding the post.
Melo is one of the biggest stock risers in this update as he’s coming off a huge season where he led Douglass to the Final 4 of state. Boone has all of the physical tools to be an elite two way guard. He can really sit down and guard the ball and is super athletic on offense, often finishing above the rim. Boone also showed an improved shooting stroke as the season moved along. Expect him to earn several D1 offers this spring and summer.
“Musa” holds strong in the top ten but I really want to see more out of him. I’ve long thought that Clinton has the most long term potential in the class but heading into his Junior season, I’m excited to see if he can tuhe corner in his development. Already a super athletic finisher, the next step for Clinton is to get stronger and become a more consistent 3 point shooter. If he can improve his shooting from deep, he’ll be a really tough cover for defenders.
Zander already holds multiple D1 offers and it’s easy to see why with his good positional size and ability to fill it up from deep. Carter put up shooting splits of 50-39-78 for his Sophomore season and it’s very possible he could be in the 50-40-90 club next season. Zander will need to keep proving that he can guard his position at the next level. If he does that this summer, he could end up with high major schools calling.
Jayden has all the physical gifts that college coaches covet and has made multiple “wow” plays in his career thus far. The only thing that can hold him back is letting adversity on the court affect him. If Miles can improve his mental toughness, the sky is the limit and I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that he could be a professional down the line. When his motor is running and he’s engaged, there aren’t many better 2025 forwards in America than Jayden.
One of the best athletes in the class, Sperry often puts on a show with his high flying dunks. His three point shooting hovered in the low 30s this season and he’ll need to improve his shooting consistency to reach his potential but Austin has the physical tools to be a heck of a two way prospect and already has a long list of colleges lining up for his services at the next level.
