Post-summer breakdown: Top 100 for 2014

It was a whirlwind tour for Hoopniks.com in watching grassroots team tournaments like the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League, Are You From Here Classic, Best Buy Mile High Classic, Great American Shootout, adidas Super 64, Las Vegas Classic, and Las Vegas Fab 48, as well attending all-star camps like the LeBron James Skills Academy, Pangos All-American Camp and the USA Basketball Men’s Developmental National team tryouts.

After observing those events as well as spring and summer events in 2011, watching video, and conversing with other recruiting analysts and high school basketball observers, Hoopniks.com broke down the top-25 point guardsshooting guardssmall forwardspower forwards and centers in the 2013 class in early August.

There is no one that can see every player and every event, but with a fair cross-section of team events, individual player camps and taking into account the valued opinions of others, here is our breakdown:
