2017 Basketball Rankings Re-Centered

It doesn’t take long to detect the epicenter of power in the 2017 class. In our new rankings for rising juniors, a whopping — actually shocking — 10 of the top 25 are natural centers. Wendell Carter is atypically strong for a young big man and thus could post the best numbers of any college freshman center in 2017-18. His recruitment includes strong overtures from Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, Georgia, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Harvard and others. (Scout.com)

NBPA Top 100 Camp: Adebayo, Killeya-Jones, Huell, Coleman

NBPA Top 100: Storylines

One of the most important evaluations for the Scout team heading into the NBPA Top 100 Camp was 2016 center Edrice Adebayo. The 6-foot-9, 230-pound post from Pinetown (N.C.) Northside entered the camp ranked as Scout's 25th prospect nationally in 2016 as well as 3rd rated center, so Charlottesville was a good opportunity to get another look at the five-star. The main schools involved with Adebayo are presumed favorite NC State along with UNC, Kansas, Maryland, Wake Forest and Louisville. (Scout.com)

Maverick Rowan enrolls in summer class, sets St. John's visit

It's been rumored for quite some time that Maverick Rowan, a 6-foot-7 forward, would likely reclassify to the 2015 class.

Rowan, who has taken one official visit to Louisville, will take his second official visit to St. John's on Monday. (Scout.com)

NBPA Top 100: Edrice Adebayo Makes Statement

On Friday night, five-star big man Edrice "Bam" Adebayo asserted his dominance. He wasn't unchallenged, though, as four-star power forward Mamadi Diakite stepped up to challenge him during the second half. They were just two of many standouts during the Friday night session of the NBPA Top 100 Camp. If there was any doubt about 6-foot-9 power forward Edrice Adebayo being worthy of his No. 8 ranking in the class of 2016, he has gone a long way toward silencing it. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
