There has been plenty of movement across all three men’s college basketball recruiting classes, with new names and big risers alike populating the ESPN 100 of 2022, ESPN 60 of 2023 and ESPN 25 of 2024.
Seven high school seniors went from unranked to the top 100. Two of those players landed inside the top 50. Three seniors went from outside the top 15 to inside the top 10. There are five new top-60 faces in the 2023 class, while there are six new names in the ESPN 25.
Here’s a look at some of the most notable examples of players who improved and climbed the rankings:
