UA Next Combine Series East Top 25 Rankings

Julius Ellerbe, Darrius Tilghman, Amar'e Marshall, Nnanna Njoku & Carter Whitt
The 2017 UA Next Combine Series’ final session of the season and represented a fitting end to Under Armour’s second-year youth basketball intuitive.  This season, Under Armour’s partnership with the Jr. NBA added several dynamic elements to an already successful platform. Last weekend, 50 players participated in the final event that was held at St. John’s College High School in Washington DC.  As was the case with the 4 prior sessions, combine attendees participated in NBA-styled combine testing, skills and drills stations, educational workshops and 5-on-5 competition. 

Similar to the last 4 sessions (Chicago, Atlanta, LA & Dallas), the talent level in the gym was impressive.  Below is list of the top 25 players at the event.  As a preface, our list does not represent “national rankings,” rather our opinion of who were the top 25 performers at the event.  In addition, over the next couple of days we will be breaking down the top players based by position.  Finally, over the next few weeks we will be determining the participants for the UA Next Experience All-Star Game scheduled for Brooklyn NY in August.
