When it comes to ranking underclassmen, it is never an easy thing to do.

While many 9th and 10th graders are getting more of an opportunity to play at the varsity level than ever before, there are some who have had only the spring to put themselves on the map.

Like every other list we do, it is done by watching perhaps more athletes LIVE than any other source. We do not just hover over the 4 and 5 stars - because there is far too much talent we feature every week in the prospect-rich 305 and 954.

When you see all the prospects who made this initial listing - which changes all the time - you will understand that this class just may be the most talented we have had in a long time.

Almost every position boasts elite prospects that college across the country have already jumped on - and have started to watch.

Like the 2019 class, we have been able to feature everyone of these prospects throughout the course of a year, so when it comes to picking 50 juniors to begin the year with, many know from following us through they years that we never, ever forget an athlete in this region.

As we bring you this year’s Junior Class, please understand, we promote everyone, so if you are upset by not being listed, keep in mind, you will be  exposed – many times more than these 50 players listed.

To the junior class, good luck this year and remember we will be there pushing and promoting you every step of the way!

As stated, this listing is but a starting point for the year that will be adjusted throughout the season:
