“How could you leave out FILL IN THE BLANK?” the message will read. “She had a really good summer.” That’s the sort of e-mail or text or direct message I usually receive at least once or twice in the days after we have published the updated Prep Girls Hoops prospect rankings. Sometimes the missives contain rather colorful adjectives and question our credibility, heritage or manhood. Others have accused us of bias and malice and all manner of misdeeds. But that’s pretty rare now.
The fact is, not everyone who deserves to be ranked makes the list. There’s simply not enough room on the bus for everyone who wants to ride. This time around I thought it might be helpful to tell you which players almost made it in each of the four classes, the handful of athletes who were on the bubble or got bumped at the last minute. Chances are, some of them will make the grade next time around. Before we do that I have to tell you about one significant omission.
