ESPN Released Final 2017 Top 100 Recruit Rankings

It’s that time of year when all the various scouting services finalize their recruit rankings for the senior class as the recruiting scene shifts fully to the juniors, sophomores and even the high school freshman with the grassroots season imminently upon us. Rivals relesed their final Top 150 last week and Providence had all three of their committed recruits inside the marker, including Makai Ashton-Langford and Nate Watson both being inside the top 85. Dajour Dickens was ranked 121st by that publication. Watson finishes with ESPN as 4-star center with a grade of 82. He’s ranked 20th nationally in the center category. Dickens finishes with ESPN as a 3-star center with a grade of 76. He’s ranked 42nd nationally in the center category.

All in all, the Big East had 16 commitments in Rivals Top 150. ESPN’s final Top 100 wasn’t as kind to the Friars or the league. Providence’s lone representation in the final ESPN Top 100 for the Class of 2017 is Ashton-Langford, who does get a little boost up to 36 from the 44th by Rivals. The Big East only has 7 of their commitments inside the Top 100 line and it should be noted that there are players ranked inside the Top-70 by Rivals who aren’t on ESPN’s Top 100, so it isn’t just players ranked in the 101-150 range missing from ESPN’s list.
