ACC targets among top centers in the 2017 class

Having presented in our most recent contribution our post-summer rankings of the top 75 high school rising seniors (class of 2017), beginning here we’ll follow up by providing rankings of seniors by position.

We’ll start this sequence of five articles with the centers (generally the shortest list) and then proceed to big forwards, wing forwards, wing guards and point guards, in that order. Overall, these five articles will list in rank order by position at least 130 seniors.

Obviously, our actual final rankings of the 2017 class will await completion of the upcoming 2016-17 season as well as the major March-April postseason all-star games. Note that many of the listed players can and do play more than one position, and we have chosen to place each at the position we think he will play most effectively in college and perhaps beyond.
