In ESPN’s updated basketball rankings following the July evaluation period, Zak Irvin moved up slightly, from #74 to #70, while Mark Donnal made a similar-sized move in the opposite direction, going from #81 to #84. Derrick Walton Jr. remains outside the ESPN top 100, ranked 25th among point guards. As a point of comparison, Monte Morris has the same “scouts grade” of 91 as Walton but is ranked 99th overall and 21st among point guards. So Walton is just outside ESPN’s top 100.
One other basketball recruiting note: Stefan Jankovic narrowed his list down to five, eliminating Michigan from consideration. His final five are Wake Forest, Georgetown, Missouri, Florida State, and Purdue.
