Class of 2018 (High School Juniors)

October 4, 2016 - CSN's recruiting experts have updated their rankings of the top 150 players in the high school class of 2018.  The 2018 player rankings will continue to be adjusted periodically based on what transpires on the field of play and as information becomes available regarding verbal commitments.  Individuals who sign professional contracts will not be included in the rankings.  

The player rankings are a reflection of the potential impact players in the class of 2018 will have at the collegiate level.  The player rankings include the individual's club team, their home town, their position, and the college (if any) to which they have committed verbally.
