Final 2003 Top 100

Basketball recruiting expert ranks his Final 2003 Top 100 high school ball players! What Michigan State Spartan recruits cracked the list? Several! Find out who they are now!

NOTE It's important to understand that while we'll include 5th year players in our final position rankings in the database, we aren't including them in the final top 100. Guys like Alexander Johnson, Julius Lamptey, Marquise Kately and Josh Boone graduated from high school last year and in some cases, even appeared in our final top 100 of 2002. You only get one shot at the top 100.

Luol Deng would have been the top player in the country if it weren't for a guy named LeBron. Here's our final Top 100 from the Class of 2003.
