Minnesota's 2007 Quick Lists

With the summer starting, two months of AAU basketball are in the books and the national camps and tournaments are around the corner. Again Minnesota has some high major players, many potential mid-major players as well as several other talented kids in the 2007 class. Who are the top prospects? The top shooters? The Top point guards? Who has had the best spring seasons of the 2007 class? These are a bunch of lists to get the summer on the way as there is a lot of basketball left to play.

Come late September, I put out my top 30 list of players which is part prospect, part ability on the floor and part past successes. But this list is a little bit different. This is Minnesota's top prospects, somewhat like the Rivals 150 list where Cole Aldrich is ranked 16th and Trevor Mbakwe is ranked 79th in the country.

Top Ten Prospects

1. Cole Aldrich, Bloomington Jefferson
2. Trevor Mbakwe, Henry Sibley
3. Al Nolen Jr., Minneaplois Henry
4. Blake Hoffarber, Hopkins
5. Jon Leuer, Orono
6. Noah Dahlman, Braham
7. Alex Rubin, Armstrong
8. Preston Whitaker, St. Cloud Apollo
9. Eric Carlson, Shakopee
10. Brady Fairbanks, Cass Lake-Bena
