Note - Not listed in any particular order

Tre Jones PG 2018 Apple Valley
The resume speaks for itself…Defending state champion, Minnesota 2 time Gatorade player of the year, McDonald’s All-American, and Jordan Brand All-American.  Obviously Tre Jones is the one of the top players in Minnesota high school basketball history. Jones led Apple Valley to a 27-2 record last season with losses to Champlin Park and Maple Grove before defeating Maple Grove in the semifinals and Champlin Park in title game to capture the Minnesota's 4A state championship. Jones leads a 27-4 first seed team this year into the tournament riding a 15 game winning streak.  Expect a well anticipated encore senior performance from Duke commit Tre Jones as they battle through sectionals for another state tournament run.

Matthew Hurt PF 2019 Rochester John Marshall
The Rochester Junior forward Matthew Hurt has yet to make the state tournament after falling to Lakeville North in the section championship the past few years. This year Hurt is one of the most dominant prospects in the state and he’s lead John Marshall to a 25-2 record and 2nd seed.

Jalen Suggs CG 2020 Minnehaha Academy 
In his young career five star guard Jalen Suggs is already one of the most battle-tested postseason prospects in the state. Defending 2A state champion Suggs has played in the sectional finals or in the state tournament each of the past 3 years. Suggs is one of the best players in the state and should be able to lead the 22-4 first seed Red Hawks back to the state tournament again this year where they are favored to repeat as state champions.

Jarvis Thomas Ossera PF 2018 Orono
One of the most dynamic prospects in the state this year, Gophers commit Jarvis Thomas Ossera has led Orono to second seed and a 21-5 record.  Thomas is the best player in his sectional and has a great chance to push Orono to a state tournament appearance.

Daniel Oturu C/PF 2018 Cretin Derham Hall
Looking to return back to the state tournament, the Raiders boast one of the most talented teams in the state finishing the season with 25-2 record and the first seed in no small part due to Gophers commit Daniel Oturu. Oturu is best post player in the state and he impacts the game on a major level on both sides of the ball protecting the paint as well as finishing at a high rate in the post.

Zeke Nnaji PF 2019 Hopkins 
The key cog in what is the machine known as Hopkins boys’ basketball, Zeke Nnaji this year will be a force to help lead 25-1 first seed Hopkins to the state tournament. Hopkins is on a 25 game winning streak entering this postseason and the Royals annually compete for the state championship title because of talents like high major junior forward Nnaji.

Tayler Johnson SG 2018 Minneapolis North
The leader of two time defending state champion Minneapolis North, UNI football commit Tayler Johnson is putting up major production this season and is one of the top guards in the Metro. Johnson has played in the state tournament every year that he's played varsity and he’s primed to lead the first seed 20-5 Polars back to the promise land for his third ring.

Dain Dainja PF 2020 Park Center
One of the most dominant frontcourt prospects in the state during this season, Dain Dainja leads a talented 22-4 Pirates team into the postseason. Dainja doesn't have a match inside in the section which could be key to dominating the paint all the way to a state tournament berth. 

Tyrell Terry PG 2019 Minneapolis De La Salle
Tyrell Terry is the general of the Minneapolis De La Salle Islanders, 6 time state champions in 3A, and he’s has been the starting point guard for the last two titles. Terry is one of the top prospects in the state regardless of class or position and he's a safe bet to put on the kind of performance needed to grab another state title for the #1 seed 22-4 Islanders looking for a seventh straight title.

Tyler Wahl F 2019 Lakeville North 
One of the top frontcourt prospects in the state this year, Tyler Wahl is a skilled forward prospect. Lakeville North is a powerhouse program in Minnesota high school basketball and they posted a 22-4 record this season.  Having made appearances in the state tournament the last 6 years in a row, Wahl is engine behind this high power program this year and they’re primed for a strong performance.

Drake Dobbs PG 2020 Eden Prairie 
One of the breakout sophomore performers of the season has been Eden Prairie point guard Drake Dobbs who has played at a high level throughout his sophomore campaign.  Dobbs lead Eden Prairie to a 19-7 record and a great regular season for a young program starting 4 sophomores. Eden Prairie is battle-tested and Drake Dobbs has had his best games against the top-tier competition in state earning a top seed in the sectional.

Courtney Brown Jr SF 2019 East Ridge 
The driving force behind East Ridge's successful 22-5 record regular season, Courtney Brown Jr has been making major contributions this season for the Raptors. One of top wings in the state, Brown Jr leads a talented cast with a chance of making it out of the sectional this year for a well anticipated state championship run.

Emmanuel Jones CG 2018 Prairie Seeds Academy 
Prairie Seeds Academy has had a good season with a talented group of guards leading them to an 18-7 record and second seed in the 1A section 4. Few prospects in the state have put up the production that Emanuel Jones has this season averaging around 28 ppg and he's on a scoring tear entering the postseason. Jones could be the driving force behind leading the only metro area 1A team with a good chance of making the state tournament.
