Scouting the EYBL
Reshuffling the Rankings

Now that the player rankings for the recruiting class of 2012 are finalized on most sites, it's finally time for Part IV of the Elite Youth Basketball League advanced stats breakdown.

So far I've really only discussed players who performed well in the EYBL. In Part I of this series, I went over the top-ranked players who spent time in the summer 2011 Nike Elite Youth Basketball League, using the most complete stats ever released for high-level AAU basketball. In Part II, I went through the ESPN-ranked talents with the most impressive numbers, and in Part III, I looked at the most productive unranked talents.

Today I'll take a quick look at all 48 seniors, 24 juniors, and ten sophomores ranked by ESPN who spent time in the EYBL. This is absolutely not the way I would order these players; it's merely a ranking based on the impressiveness of their EYBL numbers. I don't believe that Georges Niang and Jordan Price will outperform Anthony Bennett next year, but I can get behind the theory that they'll outperform Prince Ibeh, Montay Brandon, and L.J. Rose. Either way, I'll revisit these a year from now and see what we've learned.

Lastly, it's worth noting minutes played, especially for the young guys.

All top- and bottom-five finishes, among the ranked players in the Class of 2012, in each stat are listed, with rank out of listed players in parentheses. The same is true if the top and bottom three in the Class of 2013 and the top and bottom one in the Class of 2014.
