High School Player Rankings

Class of 2017 (High School Seniors)

August 20, 2016 - CSN's recruiting experts have analyzed the 2017 high school class and updated their rankings of the top one-hundred fifty players in the class.  The 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 reflect a projection of the potential impact a player will have at the collegiate level.  While room for debate always exists in any type of ranking, and no one can totally predict what the future will hold, we are confident that the CSN recruiting experts' player rankings provides the best possible insight regading individual recruits and recruiting classes.  

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.
