Spotlight Alums Crash ESPN Class of 2018 Rankings

Marvin Bagley Still #1

ESPN dropped their Class of 2018 Top 100 Rankings and Basketball Spotlight Alums rocked the list. 9 of the Top 16 players have Basketball Spotlight roots. We would like to congratulate all the players that made the list and wish them the best the rest of the way. 

1. Marvin Bagley (Arizona)- No surprise Bagley was the consensus #1 since entering high school and should stay in this spot the rest of the way. He rocked in the Spotlight AC Showcase with the loaded WACG All Stars.

3. Cameron Reddish (Pennsylvania)- Yes “The Prince” as we called seems to a King now as he is currently #3 in the country. He rocked on the Spotlight circuit with Team Final and has proven to be one of the best in America.
6. Moses Brown (New York)- Brown has made the biggest jump since middle school as he grow to 7’0 feet tall and has taken his game to another level. Brown began his Spotlight career with KSK before ending up with New Heights.
7. Nazi Reid (New Jersey)- Checks in at #7 and its well-deserved as has been killing this spring. Reid has been a national star since beginning his Spotlight career with the NJ Shore Shots, then KSK before finishing up with the Supreme Team.
9. Simisola Shittu (Canada)- Coming in at #9 is Simi Shittu, he entered the Spotlight with CIA Bounce and put on a show. He’s name has continued to ring bells on the high school circuit. He’s one of the most dominant forces on the high school scene.
11. Darius Garland (Tennessee)- One of the most entertaining guards I saw over the years. He’s grown to 6’2 and continues to play at an extremely high level. He rocked at the Spotlight AC Showcase with the famed WACG All Stars.
14. Immanuel Quickley (Maryland)- Quickley starred at the Spotlight Clash For A Cup for Baltimore Elite and put on a show. He has since starred on the high school level and as you can see is rated one of the top guards in America.
15. Jahvon Quinerly (New Jersey)- The Spotlight Player of the Year with Team IZOD in 8th Grade checks in at #15 and has been destroying the comp all summer. He has truly took his game to another level after leaving high school. He's truly a special player.
16. Louis King (New Jersey)- King was also part of the loaded Supreme Team during his Spotlight days. The smooth wing crashed the Top 20 rankings after a stellar spring with Team Final. Now he’s playing like a stud.
