The 2025 Rankings: Players Outside the Top-50 to Watch

In a lot of classes, the area just outside the top-50 would be an area where we find some players who will be possibly playing Division-II, more than likely the NAIA level. But, this is the 2025 class in Oklahoma and it is possibly the best class in the history of the state. The top-25 players (and more) could potentially be playing Division-I and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see some of the names on this list pick up some high-level offers before all is said and done. After all, it’s only junior year. We’re all still young! Well, they are, at least.
I feel like Addy has been playing like a senior guard since the first time I saw her out there on the floor. She has always been mature beyond her years and her basketball is on a whole other level now. She is a floor general who is dedicated on the defensive end and college coaches have been picking up on her whole skill set as of late. She just picked up an offer from NSU and they probably can’t wait to have a player like her on the floor for them. She can score it, she can lock down her opponent, but more than anything, she is going to run your offense to perfection.
Preslee is a big-time prospect that has begun getting college interest after a really good summer. The most impressive thing for me is her ability to score the ball. She has a skill beyond her years of being able to throw defenders off with her change of pace or her threat of changing pace. Her hesitation game is strong, as some would say. She can shoot it. She is also incredibly fast. When she puts her foot in the ground, defenders are usually caught off guard as she blows by them. When she gives a little head nod and fakes like she’s slowing up, then keeps going… defenders are completely lost. Long story short, Hartsock is a big-time prospect and a really fun player to watch!
Ava was higher in the previous rankings and in all honesty, probably could be higher in these. It’s one of those things where new players get added and other players unfortunately get shuffled around. For Ava, it all starts with her lights out shooting. But, she is far from limited to being a shooter. She has very good size for a guard and shows good handles and vision. She is an experienced player who will be playing on a very good team this high school season. She has a lot of tape out there and if you’re a college coach, you might want to hurry and get a look, maybe an offer in. A player like Ava doesn’t come around too often and isn’t going to be available too much longer.
Vanessa is a player who has made some incredible improvements in her game over the years. She moves really well off the ball and does a good job of working for her teammates within the offense. She is almost positionless in that she uses her strong, 5’10” frame to battle people down low and moves extremely well off the ball. She is a dedicated defender and comes up with her share of steals, mostly through intelligent plays on the defensive end. Coleman had a big summer and I look for her to have an even bigger high school season come December!
Speaking of big summers, Rylie’s was a huge one. Tons of camps, tons of college visits, and seemingly tons of offers. So, what is it that everybody loves about Rylie? Well, that’s easy. Rylie is a soccer state champion who brings that mentality over to the court as she is relentless in everything that she does. She is full-send, all the time. Her tape is just really fun to watch. Her shot is pretty. Her defense is suffocating. Her dribble drive is fast as lightning and often just as violent when it comes to finishing at the rim. She is one tough cookie. It’s no wonder so many coaches want to talk to Rylie these days. Here’s your chance. Don’t miss out!
