Providence Recruiting Update: Rivals Updated Their Class of 2017 Top 150

Nearly three weeks after ESPN and Scout updated their rankings for the Class of 2017, Rivals has now done the same, bringing all three of the major recruiting services up to date, post-summer grassroots season. Rivals released the updated rankings on Tuesday. Unlike ESPN and Scout, Rivals ranks a Top 150 instead of just a Top 100. Providence’s lone commitment in the class didn’t make either Top 100, but Dajour Dickens is in Rivals’ Top 150. The Big East has a total of 6 commits inside the Top 100 as compared to 4 on ESPN’s and 5 on Scout’s Top 100’s. There are also 3 players committed to Big East schools in the 101-150 range of Rivals’ rankings.

Here’s where Providence’s commit and recruits fit on both lists, along with some notable Big East commits and former Providence targets:

Providence Recruiting Update: ESPN, Scout Release Updated Class of 2017 Top 100’s

With summer winding down and players heading back to their high schools and prep schools ESPN and Scout have released updated versions of the Top 100’s for the Class of 2017. The rising seniors on these lists are still mostly uncommitted with 36 and 38 of the 100 committed on ESPN’s and Scout’s lists, respectively. The Big East has 4 commits in ESPN’s Top 100 and 5 in Scout’s. The two services differ largely on where Providence’s top big man recruit ranks, but they are in relative agreement about the Friar’s top guard recruit. Here’s where Providence recruits fit on both lists, along with some notable Big East commits and former Providence targets:

Providence Recruiting Update: Friar Recruits at the 2016 NBPA Top 100 Camp

Providence recruiting has picked up the last few months and the Friar staff had the best Spring recruiting period in Ed Cooley’s time in Friartown. Coaches Battle, Blaney, Cooley and Thomas have turned their attention to the classes of 2017 and 2018 with about 3 weeks to go until the first of the critical July live periods. Another interesting deadline that will be here in just over 12 hours is midnight on June 15th. The clock turning to 12:00 means coaches can begin to contact recruits in the Class of 2018 directly via phone. This is traditionally thought to be a telling time as coaches give hints as to who they are prioritizing in that class. I’ll have a report on who Providence calls later in the week. For now, there is another annual event in June that is drawing some Providence targets to Charlottesville, VA: NBPA Top 100 Camp.
