247Sports ranks the nation’s elite high school football and basketball recruits from multiple class years.
It is one of the industry’s largest and most recognized national recruiting staffs. They have employed a staff of more than 50 reporters, analysts and evaluators for recruitment. The players are allotted a numerical rating as well as a star rating. The analysts determine the ratings after innumerable hours of personal observations, film evaluation, and input from the network of scouts. As far as the Top247 for 2018 are concerned, Cameron Reddish, has the highest prospects of securing Rank 1. The 247 Sports staff observed Reddish’s performance at the National Hoops Festival in the past weekend. Reddish scored 87 points in two games and depicted improvement in many areas. Reddish is a 6-foot-8 player who owns as impressive athletic ability. He has a capability to excel on both ends of the floor. He is an exceptional ball handler, and a talented finisher. His short making is also remarkable. The competition for securing the first rank in the Top247 for 2018 is extremely high. Other players who are in the running to get to the top are: R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson. RJ. Barret is a 6-foot-6 skilled scorer. He is an aggressive shot maker and a proven winner. He is extremely versatile and can guard multiple positions. On the other hand, Williamson is a 6-foot-7, 265-pound small forward from Spartanburg. He has a huge built and is exceptionally athletic. He owns the potential of a rebounder and is terrific in transition. All these three are a tough competition for one another. Although, Reddish has the highest prospects of being at the top, but there are still four to five months until the 247 staff makes the final call.
