eBoss Hoops - 2007 Post Summer Rankings

It's been a few weeks since the club and summer camp season came to an end. After taking some time to review notes and reflect upon what happened during the summer, it's time to update the class rankings.

Standing atop the rankings as he always has is none other than O.J. Mayo. No matter how much some want to knock him or say others surpassed him, Mayo withstood every charge and closed out his final summer by winning an AAU National Championship.

There is no scientific method or magical formula that can be used to rank players so it’s never easy. This is just one person’s take and it is based on trying to weigh high school and summer production, future potential, and how ready a player is for the next level (College) at this time.

As always, these rankings are done for fun and to spark a little bit of conversation. If somebody was overrated, underrated, or left off please don’t read too much into it. They are just my personal thoughts after a long summer and aren’t done for anything other than fun.

Be on the lookout for an updated top 50 for the class of 2008 and 25 to watch from 2009 in the next few days.
