The final farewell is upon us. 2018’s Canadian class of basketball prospects has over 100 players that will end up at the next level. Between the NCAA, USports, CCAA and JUCO, Canadians will be scattered all over North America. North Pole Hoops’ National Player Rankings exemplify the depth in each class. The patterns continue to show high level producers past the 50th spot.
A fine mix of super stardom, elite role players and long term potential characterizes this class. A top heavy Top 10 boasts NBA prospects with RJ Barrett, Simi Shittu and Andrew Nembhard. These projections hold true right up to Noah Kirkwood and the players in between.
After the NBA watchlist, relatively speaking, to compare to previous classes there are a bunch of incoming freshman who will be making headlines at the D1 and USports levels.
With the school year winding down and the AAU circuit in process, there’s a few handfuls of names that are still looking for a home for next season.
The freshest commitments have come in over the last few days from; Stephane Ingo (Maine), Matt Grace (Richmond), Tristan Lindo (McMaster), Deon Ejim (UIC), David Muenkat (Trinidad State) and Shamar Givance (Evansville).
Guys from North Pole Hoops’ Top 50 list are almost all committed with the exception of the names broken down by position below the rankings.
Upcoming Official Visits
Kaosi Ezeagu will be visiting UTEP this weekend after having completed a visit at Western Michigan which was his first offer.
Franco Miller, a Bahamian native studying in Canada will be on a visit to Oklahoma this weekend.
Adong Makoui will take a visit to Palm Beach State this weekend.
High Academic Class
No other class compares to how high in academics this class was as a whole. There are commitments in this class to some of Americas highest ranked institutions such as; Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Vanderbilt, Michigan and others. This is also a big reason that American coaches have booked so many flights this way. Interactions with coaches are suggesting that they have an easier time with Canadians because they are often strong in the books and easy to request transcripts and scores from.
Under the Radar
Let’s let the video do the talking for this particular prospect. Hafith Moalin is one of the shiftiest, quickest and grittiest players out there yet has been overlooked.
