eBoss: 2008 and 2009 Post Summer Rankings

After releasing an updated post summer top 100 list for the class of 2007 a few weeks ago, it's time to look ahead to the classes of 2008 and 2009. Here's a look at the EBoss Hoops post summer top 75 for the class of 2008 and a top 15 for 2009.

Keep in mind, that both classes are still in the developmental stages and there are likely to be numerous changes as kids develop. Some will simply be passed up, some will come out of nowhere once they get exposure and any number of a variety of other things can happen along the way. The point is this, please take these rankings for what they are meant for and that’s for entertainment and to get one person’s current take on the top players in the country.

As always, only players who have been watched will be included and discussion is always welcomed on the message boards.
