For many reasons, the 2020 season was unlike any we’ve ever seen.

Through persistence and hard work, the GHSA and its member schools were able to complete a full season despite the challenges brought upon by COVID-19. Many schools enjoyed breakout seasons and several players throughout the state also made names for themselves. 

The updated 2022 rankings are now complete and we will continue to provide detailed reports on players in the weeks to come. While the majority of the upper echelon has remained the same (with a few alterations) as we move down the list several players saw a tremendous rise in their rankings. Here’s a look at the players who improved their stock most in 2020.

One of the best players in the state at any position.

At this time last year, Willis was unranked on a number of recruiting services. He began to receive Power 5 offers in the spring of 2020 and broke into the rankings shortly thereafter. After seeing him in person this past fall, I feel he’s still underrated by most scouts.
