Summer AAU 2015…And In Conclusion

What have we the fans of high school basketball figured out after watching one of the most exciting summers for AAU basketball in its over 30 plus year history?  Starting with the class of 2016 here are 4 facts that fans can all agree on…

1) The clear number one and two players are Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles.

2) The top five players in the class of 2016 can match up to any recruiting class in the history of high school basketball including the recruiting class that had Ronnie Fields and Kevin Garnett. G-Malik Monk  G-Dennis Smith   G-Josh Jackson   F-Jayson Tatum  C-Harry Giles

3) Although one-and-done has taken on a negative connotation in the college basketball world, the class of 2016 has more potential one-n-dones than any other class in the history of high school basketball.

4) The battle for high profile players to play in a tournament sponsored by an acclaimed label such as NIke, Adidas, or Under Armour catches the attention of all…will players soon be allowed to represent one label and what type of pandora’s box will this open?

In the class of 2017…

1) Malik Williams made a meteoric rise from virtually unranked to being considered by collegiate scouts and coaches as a top 5 player in the class of 2017.

2) Trae Young, Gary Trent Jr., and Nojel Eastern duke it out day by day for the number one guard ranking.

3) Jeremiah Tilmon is the must have big man of his class.

4) Michael Porter Jr. has dropped his name in the hat of top hybrids to come out of this decade.

The hard work continues, the competition stays steady, who will become the next star?  Stay tuned…
