NOW LIVE: 2023 Top 100 Player Rankings

By Circuit Scouting Staff, 01/07/22, 4:30PM EST


The Circuit's inaugural 2023 player rankings have officially arrived.

Our team at - led by basketball prospect specialist Rashad Phillips - have compiled a comprehensive ranking of the Top 100 players in the upcoming 2023 graduating class.

Ron Holland, a 6-foot-8 dual-forward from Duncanville/Drive Nation takes the top spot, fresh off a standout spring and summer with Drive Nation and USA U16 Basketball. Camden (NJ) & NJ Scholars star junior DJ Wagner comes in at No. 2, firmly in position as the top-ranked guard in the country. 6-foot-8 dual-forward GG Jackson - a product of Ridge View (SC) and Team CP3 (NC) - comes in at No. 3.  Wagner's Scholars' teammate Mackenzie Mgbako - a 6-foot-8 small forward from Gill St. Bernard's - slots in at No. 4, while AZ Compass Prep do-it-all junior Mookie Cook rounds out the top five. 

The 2023 rankings include prospects labeled with Phillips' new Positional Dictionary. Phillips - the owner and founder of and 10-year overseas professional - introduced the positional chart in 2020. The chart features 12 position-types geared towards accurately labeling a prospect's skillset, physical make-up, and intangibles.
