Throughout the month of September, the state of Nebraska received a much needed Player Rankings Update. There was a total of over 200+ players added to the database throughout the four high school Classes and those lists are only going to grow. In the article below I wanted to switch it up and try out something new within the Rankings. I am going to list the Top 5 Players in the state, regardless of their grade level. Each one of these players is a college level prospect, that has stood out on multiple stages over their career thus far.
Thanks for tuning in and enjoy!
#5 –– 2025 – G
starts off this list for us in the #5 spot. Ladwig is a player out of the 2025 class and she already has a handful of Division 1 offers going into her Junior year of high school ball this winter at Skutt Catholic. I would describe Ladwig’s game as a Swiss-Army Knife type. She understands how to do several different things on the floor, while being a constant producer in whatever she is trying to accomplish. This #5 spot had a lot of player taken into consideration but at this point I think that Ladwig is going to hold her own this winter and continue to receive Division-1 offers until she chooses to commit.
#4 –– 2024 – G
has recently committed to Colorado State to continue her collegiate career after high school and that is going to take a lot of stress off of her moving into her Senior season at Elkhorn North. During this day of age in recruiting, I always want players to go to THEIR best situation but also preach on committed before/at the start of their senior season, solely for one reason and that is so that they can enjoy it. I see a lot of players have to make the choice for their future late and it really throws in a wrench to what they are trying to accomplish with their team in that Senior season. Murphy picked the rams over 10-15 high end Division-1 schools. This was a big pick up for Colorado State in my opinion but we will just have to see how things play out after this season.
#3 –– 2025 – G
Don’t quote me on this but I have a hunch that the aspirations of the Gessert Twins is to compete together at the collegiate level. With that being said, just like their rankings for their specific class, I think you could switch around the sisters depending on what is needed for the roster that is recruiting, in this current moment. From everything I have seen, Neleigh is more of the off-guard out of the two, that plays more away from the ball. She can produce at a high level either at the perimeter or cutting to the hoop off of a screen or cutting past a lazy defender. It’ll be interesting where these two end up but no matter where it is, if they are together, it’s going to be a fun time to watch.
#2 –– 2025 – G
is the twin that plays more of a ball-dominate position on the court. She moves off of the ball just as well as her sister but is definitely at her best when it is in her hands and she is leading the offense. She accounts for the little things that are happening around her at all moments and that leads to some calculated success in the scoring/passing departments specifically. This is a situation where once both twins get to college, they could both truly see the floor together early on in their careers. As for now, they just need to stay dedicated and the work will keep on working in their favor.
#1 –– 2024 – G
& the #1 player out of the state of Nebraska, throughout all grade levels going into this high school season is. Prince is a high level recruit that has over 25 Division-1 offers to play at the next level. I could name every little reason as to why Prince is good but I’ll just say that she is efficient, skilled, athletic, and ALWAYS produces for her teams in some form/facet. I do not have any idea where Prince will end up committing but as of most recent, Prince has narrowed down her list to 12 big-name Universities. No matter where she ends up, she should see the floor almost immediately with her abilities but that will all depend on returning personal, other commits, ect. All in all, can’t go wrong with getting a commit like Prince.
