With the release of our updated Class of 2018 player rankings, we take a look at the top 10 players in the group.

#1 – Jaela Zimmerman, 6’2, OH, Malcolm (VCNebraska 18 Elite). Previous rank: #1

There really isn’t anything anyone can do to overtake Zimmerman as the top player in the Class of 2018. Zimmerman doesn’t get the national recognition she should when you consider that she’s really the best in-state prospect at the pins since Amber and Kadie Rolfzen. The Creighton recruit is obviously a force at the net, but her defensive abilities make her the most complete player in the class.

#2 – Kristin Lux, 6’2, OH, North Bend (Nebraska Juniors 18 Black). Previous rank: #5

The West Virginia recruit jumps from #5 to #2 after showing this fall she’s fully recovered from a serious arm injury. Lux led North Bend to its best season in two decades this fall as the Tigers reached the Class C-1 semifinals. Lux might have the highest jump-touch in the state and her ability to consistently attack at such a high point makes her almost impossible to block. Lux also is vastly underrated defensively and is a solid six-rotation player.
