We have been working on sorting out the talent in the Class of 2023 for several months now, and it has been fun rolling out the Freshman 50 over the past few days. There is always a lot of buzz surrounding the first ranking of a class, but this year the chatter has been so much louder. It’s a competitive group with a ton of depth – there were 52 teams in this age group at the AAU state tournament – and a wide variety of sizes and skill sets. They all want to make the grade.
We launched the unveiling on Sunday with an in-depth look at our co-#1s, Nunu Agara and Taylor Woodson of Hopkins. We followed that up with a detailed overview of the rest of the top 10 on Monday – #3 Tessa Johnson (STMA), #4 Clara Glad (Rogers), #5 Kennedy Sanders (Chaska), #6 Molly Lenz (Eden Prairie), #7 Shania Van Nett (Como Park), #8 Maren Westin (Becker), #9 Teresa Kiewiet (Mankato West) and #10 Kennedy Klick (DeLaSalle). Now it’s time to take a quick glance at the rest of the top 50, emphasizing players to watch by position and offering up a few more names
