Hot Recruiting Information
Free Preview

Our Hot Recruiting Information section has been updated with all the latest recruiting information on a regular basis continuously since 1998, which once again puts us way ahead of our competition.

This section details the latest camps and events covered by The HOOP SCOOP across the country throughout the year.

And because of our extensive history, it means that if you want to go back through our archives and read about how Kevin Durant played as a high school sophomore, you can do it!

Player Rankings

Our player rankings range from 5th Year Players all the way down to 6th, 7th, & 8th Graders. It's a joke how far ahead we are of the competition.The HOOP Scoop's Clark Francis

Over the years, we have ranked thousands of players throughout their youth careers, tracking their development and recruiting every step of the way.

Our rankings prominently featured great high school players and college and NBA stars such as Ben Wilson, Kevin Durant, Allan Houston, Bobby Hurley, Jamal Mashburn, Austin Rivers, Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Thomas, Jared Sullinger, Brandon Knight, Kevin Love, Stephon Marbury, OJ Mayo, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Felipe Lopez, Alan Henderson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Grant Hill, Brandon Jennings, Glenn Robinson, Shawn Kemp, Wayne Ellington, Kyle Anderson, Lance Stephenson, and Jabari Parker before most people even knew who they were!

Historical Perspective

HOOP SCOOP Editor & Publisher Clark Francis is a McDonald's All-American voter and has been to every NCAA Final Four since 1973.

He has only missed two of the superstar oriented shoe company camps (i.e. NIKE, adidas, & Reebok) since 1983.

It's our guess that there is not another person alive who can make such a claim.

Ranking of the Top Recruiting Classes
Free Preview

Tracking the race to see who has the best recruiting class is one of the best things we do and, as a result, I'm surprised that our competition hasn't picked up on it yet.

But, then, again, it's probably too much work for all of the amateurs out there.

You can get a better idea of what to expect by taking a look at our 2012 Recruiting Class Rankings. Click here!
