ESPN Recruiting Nation updated their 2017 class rankings today, assembling their list of the top 60 recruits in the country now that the 2015 summer circuit has concluded..

The EYBL is well-represented in the rankings, featuring 38 (64%) players from Nike EYBL programs. Just like the 2016 class rankings released yesterday, the 17U and 16U Peach Jam Champion Georgia Stars lead the EYBL with 5 members ranked in the top 60. Four of the five ranked players are members of the Stars' 16U squad, proving they have a great chance to defend both of their titles.

The Las Vegas Prospects and Alabama Challenge each have three in the rankings.

24 out of 40 EYBL programs have at least one representative.
