Class of 2018
As we get a little closer to the top, it becomes clear the selection process becomes that much tougher:
In the 2018 class, we have some of the most polished players currently playing high school basketball anywhere, let alone just Ontario or Canada, with Ignas Brazdeikas earning the right to be at the top of this list.
The 2018 forward first jumped onto the national scene at the Jordan Brand Invitational against Oak Hill Academy last year during All Star weekend, dropping 28 points in front of a capacity crowd, and Carmelo Anthony no less.

That experience has seemed to help him improve, as he has been on the tip of every big D-1 recruiters tongue both in the Midwest, and out in the pacific.
Sharing the other top two spots are Brazdiekas’ teammates Keshaun Saunders and Junior Farqhar.
Watching all three of these 2018 players run the floor together makes it clear why Orangeville Prep remains undefeated in the OSBA so far this season.
Saunders has shown an impressive leaping ability and outside shot to put him in the two spot, while Farqhar’s speed and impressive decision-making at the point has put him at number three.
Other players to watch make a run at the number one spot are Tafari Simms, Brandon John, and Adong Makoui.
But realistically, there isn’t a single player on this list that can’t grab that number one spot after a few good games. They all have that kind of potential.
