Class Of 2005 Prospects

<b>Player Rankings</b> for the Class of 2005. What level we think they can play at next year and what DI prospects are left in Arizona....

The PrepAZ.com's Class of 2005 (incomplete).  Here are players listed by position.  As we continue to see players, names will be added to list.  Rankings by position will be published next month.

Player Rankings are explained as follows:

Division I:
HM (High Major)... HM-MM(High to Mid Major)... MM(Mid Major)... MM-LM(Mid-Low Major) ...LM(Low Major)...


RPI Ratings are used to determine the HM-LM levels for colleges:
There are 32 DI leagues in Mens Basketball... 300 plus teams in the RPI... So I break
it down in thirds, Top 10, 2nd 10, etc.

Over the past 3 years in the West its been pretty consistent as follows:
#1 Pac 10
#2 Mountain West
#3 WAC
#4 WCC (beat out WAC one year as #3)
#5 Big West
#6 Big Sky (beat out Big West 2 years ago)

Pac 10 & Mtn West are legit HMs...

The WAC is a low HM... the WCC is a good MM league w/ one top 25 team
(Gonzaga)...

The top teams in the Big West (Utah State, UCSB & UCI) can play with anyone
in the WCC...

The 2nd division of the WAC, WCC & Big West are all competitive with each
other as MM...

The top team in the Big Sky is certainly a good MM caliber team every year,
but its usually just one team...

We use the "LM Follow/Juco for a player who currently is getting interest from DI Schools, but might need a year or two at the Juco level to develop.

A DII/Juco means we feel this player can play at the NCAA DII level now.

A player ranked "Juco" needs more experience and development to succeed at the next level.  Not being critical, just providing opinions.  Seth Robsinson, Phoenix Christian 03, went to Scottsdale CC for one year, really developed and earned a DI scholie to Boise State.

Another thing we use is the term "follow" vs "prospect"...
Its pretty subtle, but a MM follow is not as strong as a MM prospect...
The prospect is a definite, finished opinon... The follow is used for
younger kids, or players we are not sure of...

It really comes down to "can play" or "can't play"... Either you like a player or you don't...
All the grading breakdowns are really overrated.

Rankings are vastly overrated. We usually tell coaches if they like #6 on our list. They should also look at #5, #7. #8.#9.

DII-DIII-NAIA Recruits:
DII & NAIA recruit same level players.
