's 2013 Updated Top 100

After spending the spring evaluating prospects from coast-to-coast released their updated 2013 recruiting rankings. Jabari Parker held on to the top spot, but four prospects jumped into the five-star range.


Jabari Parker is still the top recruit in the 2013 class.

Parker, who led Chicago (Ill.) Simeon to their sixth state championship this past season, has been his dominant self on the spring circuit, averaging 15 points and six rebounds a game for Mac Irvin Fire.

Parker has an advanced skill set that allows him to score in a variety of ways. Using jabs, fakes and hesitation moves, Parker creates shot opportunities with ease and he's versatile enough to play facing the rim or with his back to it.

Just behind Parker is Julius Randle, a 6-foot-9 power forward from Plano (Tex.) Prestonwood Christian.

A strong, physical post player, Randle has established himself as an elite rebounder, as he leads the EYBL at just over nine boards through 14 games.

To go along with his rebounding prowess, Randle is an aggressive, physical forward that particularly loves to face up defenders and attack. He finishes through contact well and also has a knack for getting to the free throw line (8.7 per game in EYBL).

Andrew Harrison, a 6-foot-5 lead guard, is No. 3 in the latest batch of rankings.

Blessed with a rare combination of size, strength, athleticism, skill and scoring ability, Harrison is the top rated guard and one that can do a variety of things but is most effective with the ball in his hands.

At his size, Harrison gets into the lane with ease, creates opportunities for teammates and is a capable scorer from three, mid-range and at the rim.

Just behind Harrison at No. 4 is Aaron Gordon.

An athletic combo forward, Gordon reportedly averaged nearly 23 points and 13 rebounds a game while leading Archbishop Mitty to their second straight Division II State Championship.

Over the past year Gordon's offense has improved. While he's a terrific scorer in transition and can score on the block, he's also quite effective facing the rim and attacking defenders.

Checking in at No. 5 is top 10 newbie Kasey Hill.

The Florida commit, who led the Florida Rams to a championship at the adidas VIP Exclusive Run in Las Vegas to start the first evaluation period, is playing the best ball of his career.

At 6-foot-1, Hill has tremendous speed and court vision to go with an overall game that balances his terrific passing and his arsenal of scoring moves. In the past year, Hill has taken his game from one of the top point guards to an elite overall player.

Just after Hill is his AAU teammate – Chris Walker. James Young jumped from No. 28 up to No. 7, while Aaron Harrison – the brother of Andrew – checked in at No. 8 in the updated rankings.

Isaiah Hicks, a North Carolina commit, and Keith Frazier closed out the top 10.

The updated rankings saw Bobby Portis, Jermaine Lawrence, Sindarius Thornwell and James Young make their debuts as five-star prospects.

The list includes 13 new prospects. The prospects that made the jump were Jermaine Lawrence, Jajuan Johnson, Marcus Lee, Vince Hunter, Mark Donnal, Nick Emery, Sterling Brown, Jaron Hopkins, Matt Thomas, Damian Jones, Kyle Davis, Mike Young, Elliott Pitts and Patrick Rooks.
