These players either have Division One offers on the table or a college coach has brought their name up in conversations on multiple occasions, key word, multiple . The term lock means a player has D1 offers on the table and is 100% will play at the D1 one level. There are 8 players on this list who have I attached the term “LOCK” to their name even tho they do have a offer. These are players I have seen against elite D1 competition and I have no doubt they will play D1 basketball. Certainly not everyone on this list will play D1 for a number of reasons. Ranging from academics issues to failure to develop. The freshman are a hard call unless I see them regularly. Many times good Freshman hide from competition in order to protect the hype they have received. I always pay close attention to where freshman train and who they play against.. it’s a dead give away everytime. Finally I don’t listen to people telling me a kid has a offer, too often they are not being truthful. So unless I hear it from D1 coach to my ears, I do not use the lock team.

They are 36 D1 locks on this year’s list. Remember this group has a LARGE NUMBER OF D1 players NOT on the list. Anna Morris, Olivia Child’s and others are certainly D1 players. I simply have rarely,  if ever have seen then. This is by NO MEANS the Bible of D1 players….this is a EARLY BIRD D1 list of kids I have seen…no more ..no less! Many players will fall off this list at some point and many will be added… This is basically a list of potential D1 players. There are no promises that they will reach that level. But it’s certainly better to start out on this list as a possible D1 player. Because last year I got every D1 right except one Kristina Donza of Jackson Memorial. 5 projected D1 players did not get a D1 offer and Paige Salven turned down multiple offers to play D2…

When you start projecting D1 players the big thing is you must start tracking them young. You have to understand there work ethic, attitude, what type of competition they face and there competitive nature. These are the tools I use when projecting and the reasons that I am rarely wrong, when assigning the lock term on a player. The players without the lock term have work to do…Lets hope they get to work!
