Ranking 2023: Top 30


KEY POINT: Jaden Bradley

The point leader is a question of victory, and Bradley has led his team from Team CP3 (NC) to a 5-1 record in the games he has played. Of course, the numbers may not stand the eye test, as Bradley leads the EYBL in turnovers (4.3 per game) and has yet to make a three (0- 8), but you look at the assists at 6.6 per game and the points at 18.5 per game and it doesn’t matter how much volume he’s taken because there’s no doubt he’s improving this team. In the only game he didn’t play, his team suffered an 81-66 loss. it is the intangible in aesthetics. Alabama is heavily involved here, as are Arizona and Kentucky. The 2022 Rivals150 player 17 visited Michigan, Alabama, UNC and Arizona in June.


WING: Shaedon Sharpe

There is a gentle nature in the game of Sharpe. He is able to score the ball at any point, from anywhere on the floor. Sharpe has good footwork and a sharp grip that really enhances his explosive athleticism. Sharpe is averaging 21.6 points, which is good for third place on the Tour, with 44.4% of three shots. Kentucky and Memphis have spent the week watching each of Sharpe’s games.


WING: Brenden Hausen

Hausen finished the week fifth in league scoring with 20.4 points per game. The famous high school shooter from Amarillo, Texas shot 40.9% on three, while handing out a hair of less than three assists per game. His offensive arsenal was quite robust, as the 6-foot-4 shooting guard showed the ability to either shoot the movement or create the rebound for himself. He has excellent footwork, the ability to prepare for the attack, and he can take tough shots from anywhere on the ground. Hausen received an offer from Creighton after the end of the week. He made an official visit to Nevada in June as well as an unofficial visit to Texas Tech. Look for things to heat up here.


BEFORE: Josiah Harris

The West Virginia engagement entered the event unclassified and really didn’t say much, and he averaged 16.3 points and 9.1 rebounds while shooting 54.8 percent on field. The Cleveland prospect Richmond Heights High is a long, hard-minded winger who seems to enjoy doing the tough stuff. Standing at 6-foot-7, Harris is able to switch between three and four points on the ground, while keeping both positions and making plays.



BEFORE: Kyle Filipowski

There had been a lot of buzz about Filipowski coming up in the week. In fact, I wrote that the current 2022 Rivals150 No.48 prospect has a chance to leap forward after his performance at EYBL. But I don’t know if I was expecting this performance from the 6-foot-11 forward with the NY Rens (NY). For starters, Filipowski is in the conversation for one of the best passer in his class. The excellent ground vision also makes him an unsuitable attacker. He brings the ball back and initiates the attack more than half the time. Filipowski shot over 45 ^ against three for the week and he’s averaging 13.3 points and 7.6 rebounds in just 20.9 minutes played in each game. duke coach Jon scheyer, Ohio State Coach Chris Holtmann, Iowa coach Fran mccaffery and coach of Syracuse Jim boeheim have each been seen at multiple games this week. Filipowski made official visits to Syracuse, Ohio, Indiana, Duke and Iowa in June, as well as an unofficial visit to UConn.


PERSPECTIVE 2023: Gavin Griffiths

It’s not like the 6-foot-7 Griffiths entered this event as a stranger. The Expressions (Mass.) 16S wing placed 71st among the 2023 Rivals150 and carried Power Five offerings from Rutgers, Syracuse and Maryland. But Iowa and Dayton, who both volunteered after the event, saw what I saw at Griffiths, as he averaged 16.2 points, 7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists on 41.7. % of shots out of three. It may be better than we initially thought.
