Prep Dig Kansas is happy to provide some holiday stocking stuffers with the release of its initial player rankings for the Class of 2024.
It is understandable that this list could see major changes before this class graduates, but the 50 student-athletes that made the list contributed to their respective school’s varsity squads.
Each will look to improve their skills in 2021 whether they play club ball or not.
Here is a look at the highest five ranked players from the Kansas Class of 2024.
