With the Spring club season at its conclusion its time for the initial top 25 for the class of 2026.  The ProspectsNation.com ELITE 150 committee has been in gyms across the country, watching this class closely and the body of work compiled by these players warrants inclusion.

The summer will be telling for this class as well.  With two more scheduled updates before this class’s final club season, look for the ELITE 150 list to grow and for major matchups to heavily influence where this class ultimately lands.

The 2026 class is showing a lot of of elite size, though much of it is on the perimeter or in swing positions.  True post play is not deep nationally in this class so far.  

Texas is bringing considerable talent to the table, as we’ve grown accustomed to.   Five players in the top 25 call the Lone Star State home, led by 6-foot-2 wing-forward Jacy Abii of Plano, Texas, who just made her second USA Basketball junior national team with her selection to the U17 team.

While no other state claims more than two there’s several regions with ample talent to fill the ELITE 60 release later this summer.

Ten players currently hold 5-star ratings, the highest possible for a player, which projects first team all-league honors in a power conference.  Four-star ratings project as a starter for a top 40 team.


There's documented productivity coast-to-coast throughout the class from the interior prospects like Olivia Vukosa (New York) and McKenna Woliczko (California) to the backcourt prospects including Kate Harpring (Georgia) and Trinity Jones (Illinois). This class has depth from the top of the list all the way to the No. 25 spot. The battle at the top is truly up for grabs. Jerzy Robinson (California) is taking a different approach not playing club basketball this summer. We'll see if that pays off in her development over the next 12-18 months. There's true versatility in this class as well. For example, Addison Bjorn (Missouri) plays point guard for her school team but will project as a wing option for most of the programs that extend scholarship offers her way. Meanwhile, Maddyn Greenway (Minnesota) is one of the more prolific high school scorers in recent memory but she'll be slated as a point guard for most programs recruiting her at the college level.
