D1 Hoops Report Class of 2013 Spring Top 40

By Jeff Borzello and Alex Schwartz

Continuing on with the D1 Hoops Report player rankings, it is time to reveal our top 40 players in the class of 2013. The D1 Hoops Report Class of 2011 Top 150, D1HR Post-Grad Top 40 and and D1HR 2012 Top 75 have already been posted.

Below you will find the D1 Hoops Report Class of 2013 Spring Top 40, which was compiled by myself, Jeff Borzello of, and Alex Schwartz of Northstar Basketball. For those who do not know, D1 Hoops Report is the name of the college scouting service run by myself and Schwartz and the rankings reflect the consensus views of D1HR.

The bookends on the list are a pair of players from Simeon (IL), the alma mater of NBA superstar Derrick Rose. Jabari Parker, a 6'7 small forward, is the newest stud at the Chicago powerhouse and the son of ex-NBA player Sonny Parker has all the skills to be a big-time player down the road. He narrowly edged out 6'8 power forward Julius Randle of Prestonwood Christian (TX) and 6'10 center Nerlens Noel of Tilton School (NH) for the top spot.

The D1HR 2013 Top 40 has just three committed players, including zero in the top 20. Needless to say, when the list is extended to 60 players before the summer and then 75 after the summer, there will be a few more ranked players who will have made their collegiate choices. For now, though, check out the best of the best in the crop of soon-to-be high school juniors, the top 40 in 2013.

  1. Always sleeping on Indiana, do you think there's any chance 2-3 more Indiana players don't make this list by 2013? C'mon now...
