Class of 2012 – NPH Canadian National High School Rankings

TORONTO,ON–With each high school season over across North America, it is time to provide our viewers with an updated Top 25 list of players in the 2012  class. From the summer of 2011 up until now, NPH has monitored the top prospects in the nation on both sides of the border and witnessed their progress.

It was certainly not an easy task to filter out the Top 25, however everything gathered over the past 12 months has assisted us in breaking it down. Watching these prospects in various playing environments on different teams allowed us to better distinguish strengths and weakness.

In the current NPH top 25, 11 players are NCAA-bound, two will be in the CIS, while 12 players are still uncommitted!

Stock Rise

  • Naz Long – The Iowa State commit certainly raised his stock since the summer. Long secured MVP honours at the NPH Platform which featured the top prospects from 2012 to 2015. Players in the 2012 Top 25 included Negus Webster-Chan, Kaza Keane, Grant Mullins and Rohan Boney. If that isn’t enough, Long then proved his worth against a strong Huntington Prep which featured Stefan Jankovic (2012), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (2013), and Andrew Wiggins (2014) to name a few.
  • Shaq Keith- Cape Breton has secured a big time player for the Capers program, who could very well be considered a “program changer” based off how he transitions into his new surroundings. The AUS will feel his impact on the league, without a doubt, next season.
  • Joe De Ciman- This physical specimen has been hidden for far too long, dominating Western Canada all season. NPH witnessed De Ciman capture MVP at the full court press exposure camp in Calgary and has continued to develop his perimeter game since then. He will have a
  • Grant Mullins- Mullins is arguably the top shooter in the country (or Nick Stauskas). The Columbia commit scored 25 + points in 41 games this season while leading his Notre Dame team AAA OFSAA silver.
