The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex remains the top geographic hotspot for basketball in the new Texas Top 100 Class of 2019 Rankings, with the Houston area right behind, followed by growing talent pools in San Antonio and Austin in the new Class of 2019 rankings.
Charles Bassey, the 6’10 center from San Antonio St. Anthony’s, is holding down the top spot in 2019 as we head into the start of basketball season. Bassey already has offers from Kansas, Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and TCU, and appears to have the highest ceiling among his class in the state.
Players from The Plex take up the next three spots with North Crowley star Grant Sherfield filling in at No. 2 in the class, trailed closely by De’Vion Harmon, Tyrese Maxey, and Charles Smith IV rounding out the top-5.
The top-10 players in this class may collectively have the highest ceiling in Texas basketball history. Players like Chris Harris, Jalen Wilson, Jordan Turner, Devon McCain and Quin Slazinski have unreal abilities and would be among the top-5 in almost any other state.
The metro Austin area is on the come-up with players like Garrett Wilson, Will Baker, Darius McBride and D.J. Thorpe all in the top-50.
There are some solid sleepers in the bottom half of the rankings with potential to make a jump into the top-50 with a little more development. No. 78 Sean Walker, a 6’5 forward from Pflugerville Hendrickson, is an extremely athletic player who needs to fine-tune some aspects of his game before making that next step. Tristan Garrett, ranked No. 100, is a big-time athlete who averaged 19 points per game last year and won Newcomer of the Year in his district.
