About those Lists

The purpose of an index site (such as 2017 NCAA Class) is to provide a rough framework for you to start with and dive deeper into a league, college class or Euro generation, rather than making a definite statement about one player’s superiority over another.

Levels

Levels are based on the strength of the list’s context (Domestic League, Year of College Graduation, Year Born in Europe). Cross-comparisons from one list to another aren’t necessary possible.  Players are put into levels based on how good they are now, not trying predict how prospects will do years down the line.  In every International League (and increasingly in the NBA) a player is signed to contribute immediately and that understanding is displayed in the levels.

Players are listed alphabetically within levels.
