It’s been a while since the class of 2018 rankings were updated, but we have finally finished a major update to the list.
The new top-10 has four kids from the DFW area, four from the Houston area, and two from the Central Texas region. This class is significantly deeper than recent years, but not quite as top-heavy.
Typically we see the top-50 or 60 kids go on to play college ball, but this class is shaping up to have 75 or more players to collect scholarship offers. That just speaks to the depth of this class and the growth of the game in Texas.
The 2018 group is headlined by Quentin Grimes, the No. 1 player in the state from The Woodlands and Basketball University. He’ll be able to pick any school he wants to attend in the country.
Coming in at No. 2 is Gerald Liddell, the gifted 6’7 forward from Cibolo Steele, who joined Nike RM5 for the summer. He has a chance to be the best player out of San Antonio since Shaq.
At No. 3, we have Austin Westlake product Brock Cunningham, who does just about everything right. He can score points in bunches from anywhere on the floor, he can rebound, he can defend, and he out-hustles everyone at all times. The 6’7 forward plays for Urban ASAK on the Adidas Gauntlet and has offers from Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Houston and others.
Rounding out the top-five are DFW prodigies Russell Barlow and Reggie Chaney. Barlow is a 6’9 power forward from Richardson Berkner and Chaney is a 6’7 forward from Frisco Liberty.
