Prospect-Central: HS Basketball c/o 2015 Tournament of Champions!!!


Written by: Prospect-Central

With the 2014 AAU basketball season in full effect, Prospect-Central will be releasing its new class rankings within the upcoming weeks. As always, PC likes to start at the top of the food chain, so here's a sneak peek at some of the top incoming seniors from the Class of 2015.

Now obviously we've all heard of 'March Madness' before, but this is a little something I like to call 'May Madness!' It's essentially the same thing as the NCAA Tournament, minus the gambling of course :) Here's a quick breakdown on how the players were seeded.

Just like the NCAA Tournament, the 64 recruits were separated into four regions, starting with the top overall seed (Ben Simmons) in the South region. From there, the second No. 1 seed (Ivan Rabb) went to the West region, followed by third No. 1 seed (Malik Newman) in the Midwest region, and the fourth No. 1 seed (Diamond Stone) in the East region.

After the top four recruits were seeded, I moved one region to the right and placed the first No. 2 seed in the West region. This was followed by the second No. 2 seed in the Midwest, third No. 2 seed in the East, and fourth No. 2 seed in the South. I continued moving clockwise during the entire seeding process.

Since this is completely subjective, opinions will obviously vary as to the players and their rankings. Even though there's definitely room for improvement, make no mistake about it; the majority of these recruits should make up next years McDonald's All-American game, Jordan Brand Classic, and Nike Hoop Summit.

Now that's all fine & dandy, but any big-time HS recruit could be invited to those events. On the contrary, there can only be one winner of Prospect-Central's inaugural HS Basketball c/o 2015 Tournament of Champions. Time to fill out some brackets!
