NO. 10 NORCROSS
Location: Norcross, Ga.
Preseason Rank: 10
2017-18 record: 28-4
Final 2017-18 Super 25 ranking: Unranked
The Blue Devils return all five starters from a team that finished as state runner-up last season, led by versatile shooting guard Brandon Boston (14.1 ppg., 5.4 rpg.), who is ranked No. 11 overall in the Chosen 25 for 2020. Boston was one of the most dominant players on the Nike EYBL this past summer running with AOT (Ga.).
He’s joined by point guard Kyle Sturdivant (15 ppg., 4.2 apg.), a Southern Cal commit, forward Issa Muhammad (9.3 ppg., 7.4 rpg.), and guards Caleb Murphy and Kevon Eskridge.
Clearly, experience and chemistry won’t be an issue for the Blue Devils, but they’ll need consistent contributions from newcomers like forward Daniel Ramsey, a Xavier commit, and shooting guards Isaac Martin and Jaden Harris to take the next step.
