USA Today High School Sports came out with their high school Chosen 25 rankings and it carried a Battle at the Rock feel to it. Each year, Jason Jordan will put out his “Chosen 25” of the senior class and this year five players who are competing in the Battle at the Rock made their way onto the list. In fact, all five of the players are in the Top 20 of the ranking.
Topping the list, at number one overall, is Oak Hill Academy’s Cole Anthony. The highly celebrated 6’2” point guard recently narrowed his college list down to 12, which is virtually a who’s who among top college basketball programs with Kansas, Duke, Kentucky, UNC, Louisville, Oregon, Villanova, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Georgetown, Notre Dame and Miami.
The next 5-star who will be competing at Battle at the Rock is Josh Green of IMG Academy who comes in at #8. The 6’6” shooting guard is then followed by IMG Academy’s UNC commit Armando Bacot at #11. Then you have in-state phenom Josiah James of Porter Gaud at 13 and then IMG Academy’s Jeremiah Robinson-Earl at #17.
