Our boys basketball coverage for Gold Club VIPs continues with a look at the state’s top college prospects in each class. The sophomore class (2022) has good players at every position, and it looks like there will be at lest a couple of sure-fire All-Americans. We expand our 2022 rankings from 25 to 65 with 11 newcomers to the original 25 positions and a host of talented prospects in the 26 to 65 range. The post-summer Cal-Hi Sports Top 65 will be updated at least once during the season and we’ll come back and publish our final rankings for 2019-20 in early summer 2020.

The first 2022 Cal-Hi Sports Top 65 for the 2019-20 school year is based on evaluations from fall leagues, this past summer’s NCAA viewing periods and non-viewing showcases since June. These rankings are based on college potential, not high school performance, although the baseline of where we begin with each prospect begins with high school basketball.
We’ll follow this report by introducing the Class of 2023 with an initial Top 25. In the coming months, we’ll continue publishing our archived Hot 100s as part of the most comprehensive California state player rankings you’ll find on the Internet that you can sort through using the easy-to-use dropdown menu below.
The previous rankings in the 2022 post-summer Top 65 refers to the player’s position in the previous list we published late May 2019 right before the beginning of the summer viewing period in conjunction with the Hoop Scoop, our partner for boys basketball national player rankings. We expand from 65 to 100 players when sophomores enter their junior season and expand from 25 to 65 when freshmen enter 10th grade.
In early 2020, we’ll also be rolling out more enhanced features on the Hot 100 players where you’ll be able to search through our vast profiles, player performances and evaluations. We’ll highlight California’s individual players — past, present, and future — better than it’s ever been done before.
