Team Rankings

Last updated on November 24, 2020.

From time to time, we tally up all of the pro prospects on each college team from our entire draft board (500-plus players, including international players), and use a point system that weighs each player’s ranking, with the highest rankings receiving the most points. For example, a top-25 player is worth more than a player who is ranked between 51 and 100. The rankings below include how many players each team has ranked in the various groups (1-25, 26-50, 51-100, 101-200, 201-300, and 301-and-above), the total number of prospects at each school, and the average age of those prospects. Players who are out for the season due to injury, suspension, or transfer are not included.

For a number of reasons, Hoops Prospects’ team rankings are fairly different from the AP Top 25 and any of the various team power rankings. Hoops Prospects’ team rankings basically show which teams have the most collective pro potential, which is not the same thing as which are the best college teams at the present moment. Our team rankings significantly favor long-term potential, and talented youngsters who may not be significant factors on the floor at this time will still increase their team’s ranking. Also, winning in college basketball involves more than talent, as coaching, style of play, execution, experience, and team defense are all significant factors (see Wisconsin and Virginia as examples). And we all know that being a great college player often doesn’t equate to making it as a pro.
