A quick couple of notes about these rankings: First, these are my rankings, not a cumulative ranking of our scouts – each scout generally keeps his own personal rankings about players and we don’t always agree. Secondly, these rankings are based entirely on having seen these players in person multiple times. Third, players who are native to NC but are leaving next season to play out of state, aren’t on this list. Fourth, this is by no means our entire list of players – even though each of these players is indeed in the Basketball Elite Player Database, these are just my rankings for the power forwards in the state heading into the summer evaluation period. Finally, I am aware of several players who are coming into NC and will play in the state next season, but since they haven’t yet played a game where I could see them, they aren’t yet in the rankings.
