Sports Illustrated releases ‘SI99’ national basketball prospect rankings, SI All-American nominations for class of 2022

Early in each high school basketball season, SI All-American unveils its SI99, ranking the 99 best senior boys prospects in the country.

On Wednesday, it released the SI99 for the class of 2022.

Westtown School (West Chester, Pa.) 7-0 center Dereck Lively, a Duke signee, was rated the No. 1 prospect, with Sierra Canyon’s Amari Bailey (UCLA) and North Little Rock’s Nick Smith Jr. (Arkansas) occupying the second and third spots.

Florida was the state with the most selections at 20. University of Arkansas had the the most SI99 picks committed in its 2022 class with five.

After the season, the final SI All-American team and national player of the year will be named. Last year, Gonzaga’s Chet Holmgren was named SI All-American Player of the Year.
