Updated 2013 Top 100 Rankings

Following a full month of camps and travel team events, the 2013 player rankings are updated and ready for release. Some UCLA prospects moved around and some entered the rankings...


With the three July evaluation periods complete, it's time to release the post-July 2013 top 100.

In what appears to be the best top group of prospects since the 2007 class, it was incredibly tough to put the first eight prospects in the 2013 recruiting class in order.

In the end, we stuck with Jabari Parker as the top overall prospect. The 6-foot-8 wing out of Chicago (Ill.) Simeon has a tremendous skill set and a unique scoring ability from all three levels.

The Harrison brothers checked in at No. 2 and No. 3.

LaVine moves up to #24.

Andrew Harrison got the edge because of his ability to play both guard positions without much of a drop off. Andrew has a terrific blend of size, strength, skill, passing ability and scoring.

Andrew's brother Aaron wasn't too far behind. A tremendous scorer, Aaron has deep range on his jump shot and is tough to defend off the dribble, as he finds ways to get into the lane and his strength allows him to score around the rim with ease.

In what ended up one of the hardest decisions of the new rankings, we went with Julius Randle at No. 4 and Aaron Gordon at the No. 5 spot.

UCLA-committed guard Zach LaVine continued to move up the rankings, sneaking one spot ahead of UCLA target Isaac Hamilton.

UCLA point guard prospect Roddy Peters also made a sizeable leap up to #53.

The updated list includes 10 new prospects -- including UCLA prospects Darin Johnson and Marcus Allen.
