2023 Rankings have been updated and I was impressed with the number of middles that were not just competing but really competing at a high level.  In the top 30 alone there are 9 middles and 7 of which are committed to play either division 1 or 2 in college.  I can’t imagine the couple that aren’t committed with remain that way very long!
