2024 Rankings Release

Shea Sbranti
Arizona Scouting Director

As the fall of 2022 is coming to a close it is time to revisit our player rankings for class of 2024. After multiple events, and being able to see live game play this fall, the Arizona staff was able to make subtle changes while adding some new additions to the list. 

As always the ranking process is a fluid and ongoing process, in which players are evaluated on multiple occasions, whether it be at an event or on the playing field at a local tournament. All players on this Top-100 list are well deserving and have a bright future ahead. The players at the top of the list have separated themselves from the rest, and proven they belong where they will be heading. Most of these prospects are very tough to compare, and through the entire Top-100, the players are merely interchangeable, including some of those that have been left out.
