Kentucky High School Player Rankings

| November 26, 2013

The Kentucky Recruits staff has been working hard to start a player ranking for Kentucky High School Basketball players.  These kids are playing here right under our nose and we would like to give them a spotlight and showcase where they rank among their peers.  We are going to be breaking the rankings down into classes, as well as a collective Top 10 ranking with players from different classes pitted against each other.  This should be fun and something good for the kids in the state.

Reminder: These are our initial preliminary rankings, so please keep in mind that they may change as the season goes on.  (See below for where you can provide your feedback on the rankings.)

We wanted to make our initial ranking a little different, so we have taken the liberty to rank the top players within the state of Kentucky regardless of class.  Check out who we ranked and where right below.
