Greensboro, NC (Future150) -- With 8th Grade Nationals upon us this week, and Future150 staff hitting the road for Orlando, Florida, we figured it was time to get a fresh look at the national rankings for the class of 2021 before July action. At the top, not much has changed, as Zion Harmon still is settled in at the #1 spot, but there have been several movers-and-shakers below him. Here are some interesting storylines to follow as the summer season rolls on.

Zion Harmon Still #1 After Impressive EYBL Season

After setting the world on fire last year while playing 17U EYBL with We All Can Go, 5'11" point guard Zion Harmon outdid himself this year, starting for Boo Williams and having an excellent spring season. While questions about his upside will continue to follow him throughout his high school career, the fact of the matter is that no one in his class has done what he's done, on the stages he has, to this point. Oh, and he just won a gold medal for Team USA U16's a few weeks back. 

Terrence Clarke The Best Boston Prospect Ever?

While the  Boston metro area has put out a number of NBA prospects over the years, including Patrick Ewing, Chris Herren, Nerlens Noel & Wayne Selden, to name a few, there's considerable buzz growing that 6'5" wing Terrence Clarke could be the best homegrown product to emerge from the city. There's obviously a long way to go for him in his basketball marathon, but as it stands right now, he's the #3 prospect in his class nationally, and possesses the tools that translate long term that scouts look for. 

Kamryn Waites Setting The Tone For Bigs Nationally

The buzz has been building over the past year for Kamryn 'Baby Shaq' Waites in the DFW, and with good reason. Now standing at 6'9", 275-pounds, the dominant big man has been putting in work this AAU season, and his profile continues to rise. As July starts, the RM5 big man looks primed to solidy his status nationally, and it will be a fun ride to watch where his journey goes over the next few years.

New Names In The Rankings

Milwaukee has itself a talented big man prospect in 6'8" Michael Foster, who debuts in the rankings at #14, which might prove to be too low by this time next year. Florida guard prospect A.J. Neal has proven his worth while playing against older competition all spring, and for his efforts, he checks into the rankings at #44 in the country. Keep an eye on Louisiana big man prospect Jourdain Dishmond, who at 6'7", already has a high level of skill to his name. He debuts in the rankings at #82.
