Few changes in 2015 GA rankings

The jam-packed spring is in the books and our team spent hundreds of hours in the gym, watching as many players as we possibly could have seen.

As is the case after the busy spring period, we have reshuffled and restacked the deck for the class of 2015.

Truth be told, there wasn't a need to change things at the top. We like the way things play out from No. 1 to No. 12. In fact, for the first time since HoopSeen.com launched three years ago we didn't see a need to change things around. We're confident in our top players in Georgia's 2015 class.

WHAT CAN BROWN DO?

We've argued that Jaylen Brown should be considered for the No. 1 spot in the class of 2015 nationally and Scout.com, at least, has considered it. Brown was Georgia's top performer during the spring and had one of the most impressive individual performances of the travel season so far.

Brown has been our top player in the state for some time now and we've been way ahead of the curve on his long-term projection as a player. We don't foresee a change of opinion any time soon.

By the way, Brown and his Game Elite squad will be at Suwanee Sports Academy for the Best of the South July 10-13.

BIG MEN BATTLE

Doral Moore or Daniel Giddens?

Daniel Giddens or Doral Moore?

The debate has gone back-and-forth for quite some time and depending on your preferred taste, both can make a solid case for No. 2.

Moore's presence was felt as teams reconsidered attacking the iron. Moore has shown an improved offensive game. The 7-footer from Luella is still one of the most unique players in America and years away from becoming the player he is capable of.

Giddens was the most impressive shot-blocker at Suwanee Sports Academy this spring. And it wasn't even close. Like Moore, Giddens has improved his offensive game. As a rebounder, the Wheeler big man is one of the best in the country.

BEASLEY IS BEASTIN'

Truth be told, Malik Beasley has done enough to warrant him No. 2 overall in the state of Georgia.  He was absolutely dominant on the Nike EYBL circuit. There was no denying his scoring prowess.

We saw Beasley's climb coming long before he sky-rocketed up the national rankings. In fact, we are still giving him strong consideration for No. 2 overall in the state.

MOVIN' ON UP

Like Beasley, we saw Ty Hudson's accession coming. That's why we have the Pebblebrook point guard at No. 6 overall. Scout.com recently inserted him into their national Top 100 list.

From there, though, what else is new and noteworthy? How about the climb Carrollton big man Montae Glenn is making? The simplistic post knows what he is and how to do it. He was the best around the rim finisher we saw in the spring from Georgia. If he catches the ball in the post, he's going to score it.

Laney SG JaShawn Brooks is one of the most under-appreciated players in the state. He's improved his shooting touch, shines as a defender and has skills to bounce between both guard positions. He rises to No. 14 overall in the state.

HI, MY NAME IS...

There are only two new names on this updated 2015 rankings list. Georgia Prep Academy big man Travon Bunch and ML King wing Kevon Harris both shined enough in the spring to debut on the HoopSeen.com list. Bunch (No. 20) plays for the Atlanta Celtics while Harris (No. 28) hoops for the Georgia Tornadoes.
