Welcome to the On3 100, our final basketball prospect rankings for the 2021 recruiting cycle. Our goal is to assess a prospect’s long-term potential in college basketball, ultimately manifested by the NBA Draft.

In the On3 100, each prospect is listed with their position, On3 grade, hometown, high school and commitment status if applicable.

The rating scale is as follows: Five-star prospects have grades 98-100, four-star recruits have grades 90-97, while 80-89 grades are for three-stars.

The first 21 prospects are five stars with a rating of 98 or higher. Each recruiting cycle could vary with the number of five stars. The rankings for current cycles will be updated on a regular schedule throughout the year.
