As a companion list to a group of those considered more near the top of the state to be the first-ever State Freshman Player of the Year, here’s a more comprehensive list of those now on our radar screen as ninth graders we’ll likely be following for the next few years.


This is a post for our Gold Club members only on To join our Gold Club to get companion list to this feature of more than 50 freshmen to watch in the state, all new state rankings, state record updates and all of the all-state team announcements, CLICK HERE.

Notes: As mentioned in the other post about this topic this week, this is not a Class of 2026 recruiting list. We did not watch film of the Mater Dei-St. John Bosco freshman game to look for top players, either. These are all players listed below who have “done something” in varsity games so far this season. Other players will emerge down the road as they get varsity playing time.
