To follow up, we asked our national team this question: Looking back at the group’s handiwork on the list, what's one player ranking you think will change by the end of summer?
Josh Gershon: I think one player who was the toughest to get a good feel for on a list like this is Josh Langford, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound 2016 shooting guard from Madison (Ala.) Academy. Langford has missed a lot of time due to injury, so tracking his progress hasn't been as easy as it's been for a large percentage of the list that we probably have a better feel for. This spring we'll see Langford again and be able to get a much better idea of where he fits in nationally compared to his peers.
Brian Snow: For me, it is Kobi Simmons (pictured above). I just really believe in the kid's talent and think he is the new type of player that is having a lot of success in the NBA. He is an elite scorer, a very good athlete, and then also is more than capable of running a team. For me I think Simmons is going to have a tremendous spring and summer and could be someone who really jumps up the board quickly.
Evan Daniels: One player I'm excited to see more of this spring and summer is Jarrett Allen. He has very impressive physical gifts and all the tools you'd want in a promising young big man who stands 6-foot-10. He's mobile, has good hands and scoring touch. He will be on the circuit with Texas Pro and we'll certainly be paying attention.
Rob Harrington: When I see sophomore Matt Coleman at No. 70, I think we have a potential all-league type point guard a little low. Coleman has impressed many, many observers over the past six months, as he’s quicker and more explosive now than he was last summer. I also like that Coleman has competed against 17-under competition, even when he was two years younger than the field. A year from now, he could vault to a much higher spot on this list.
