As the second half of this year’s high school season winds down, several Canadians are left on the board narrowing down their options, and building relationships with college coaches before making commitments.

The Canadian Top 50 from North Pole Hoops National Player Rankings all seem to be heading to the NCAA at the D1 level or to a high level USports program. Some of the guys on the list below have already committed, some are chopping down their lists and others are still breaking out from being under the radar.

Jashon Henry is a prime example of that under the radar type of talent that coaches have been calling about all week. Coaches are recruiting the best available prospects who have immediately transferable traits. Henry’s physical strength, athleticism and slashing all convert.

He’s just one example of the under the radar Canadians in 2018.

As for the big man position, you wouldn’t miss these guys if you saw them walking down the street, but for various reasons GTA Prep’s Kaosi Ezeagu as well as Bridgton Academy’s Fardaws Aimaq, have been sleepers.

  1. CBF says:

    Thanks for the update. A really strong class. too bad you didn’t add where they are going (college) on the right-hand side column, since this one is about recruitment.

    Here’s where I disagree with your rankings:

    Dalano Banton is actually having a real breakout season. Looks great and should be ranked higher. I would put him at least at 7, perhaps even higher. Certainly before Eze Dike and Jashon Henry. From what I’ve seen, he’s a possible NBA prospect and they are not.

    Would also put Adong Makuoi higher. He’s limited offensively, but such a force on defense. I’ll take him any day over someone like Ezeagu, who seems to have all the tools, but gets owned by the likes of Muila on a regular basis.

    For others, it’s a matter of taste, but I mostly find the ranking reasonable.

    And one correction: Brett Sloan is no longer at Orangeville. He moved to Southwest this year.

  2. Jim Thomas says:

    Brett Sloan is a bit of a head scratcher for me in the top fifty. Big mobile kid who lacks intensity and never seems to impact games which he should considering his size and skill set. Kur Jockach plays with much more intensity and has size and athletic ability. Once his skills and experience catch up he will be very good. I love his potential. Could be a a potential All Canadian down the road.
