Bull market: 10 on the rise
Recruiting wrap: Committed to Texas.
Perfromance: A big riser out of the summer who went from unranked into the national top 40, the 6-foot-4 combo guard hasn't stopped getting better. Because of his ability to handle, create and score, it looks like Jones next move will be into five-star status.
Mohamed Bamba (2017)
Westtown (Pa.) School
Recruiting wrap: Duke, Kentucky, Syracuse, Harvard, St. John's, Maryland and many more are involved.
Performance: Like Ayton, Bamba is already a top five player in the class of 2017, but his improvement is undeniable. With his ability to change shots, run the floor and score, the long-armed Bamba looks at times like a young Marcus Camby. Like Ayton, he is giving current No. 1 Wendell Carter a run for his money.
Wilbraham (Mass.) Wilbraham & Monson
Recruiting wrap: Signed with Kentucky.
Performance: A combo forward who can put the ball on the floor, dominate the glass and run for days, Gabriel put his stamp on the National Prep Showcase in November. He played his way onto USA Basketball's prestigious Hoops Summit team and is making a legit push for the national top 10 in 2016.
Winston-Salem (N.C.) Quality Education
Performance: The strong and athletic small forward has significantly improved his jump shot and it has made a huge difference. Now he's a threat to bomb away from 15-22 feet or attack the lane to try and dunk. He barely made four-star status coming out of the summer, but has earned a jump in the next rankings update.
Trae Young (2017)
Norman (Okla.) North
Recruiting wrap: Final 11 of Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, SMU, Stanford, Texas, Texas Tech and Virginia.
Sitting on the borderline of five-star status, Young may have pushed himself into that category with his early winter play. Always known as a dangerous shooter from deep, Young has added to his play making for others, become more versatile as an off the dribble scorer and improved his defense all while retaining his deadly three point shooting.
D'Shawn Schwartz (2017)
Colorado Springs (Colo.) Sand Creek
Performance: Schwartz seemingly came out of nowhere at the USA Basketball developmental camp in October. He's an athletic, physical and skilled two guard. Schwartz already pushed himself into the top 80 of 2017, but he's likely moving higher than that.
R.J. Barrett (2019)
Montverde (Fla.) Academy
Recruiting wrap: No school list yet.
Performance: A product of Canada, Barrett has been beyond impressive as a freshman. He is explosive, he can get to the rim and he has good shooting touch. Barrett burst onto the scene at the Fall Festival in October and recently put up huge numbers at the prestigious City of Palms tournament.
P.J. Washington (2017)
Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep
Performance: A combo forward capable of playing on the wing or the interior, Washington has greatly expanded his game. He has become a dangerous shooter from three while remaining a junkyard dog who will rebound in traffic and attack the rim in transition.
Chatham (Va.) Hargrave
Recruiting wrap: Signed with VCU.
Performance: Already a four-star who ranks in the national top 60 in 2016, Jenkins could be pushing for a move of at least 15-20 spots up the board. He has greatly improved his ball handling, plays with a great motor and is tough to contain off the dribble.
