The updated Top150 for the class of 2021 features known commodities at the top in Jon Kuminga and Chet Holmgren. The rest of the list comes with less fanfare, especially in a summer that’s been devoid of summer events. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t players who aren’t deserving of more attention. Like with any update, we saw a bevy of impressive risers as we dug into countless hours of high school tape.
Here are the players who made climbs up the rankings.
FROM 89 TO 63: D’Marco Dunn
Recruitment: Arizona, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Clemson, Louisville, Maryland and others
One of the most notable players to see his stock soar upon the circulation of his high school film has been Dunn. The 6-foot-4 Dunn has gone from a virtual unknown to a blueblood recruit within a few months time. It is obvious as to why.
We first got Dunn’s film in late April, and from there we knew he was too good to simply not rank. Initially we decided to slot him in the back end of the top 100, but after going over his film more, it was clear he needed to be bumped up even higher.
Dunn has athleticism, an ability to shoot, and also is capable attacking the rim. Add in toughness, and a desire to guard, and it is easy to why his stock has soared, and why his ranking has followed. Dunn hails from Fayetteville, N.C., playing at Westover High.
