For Nick Smith Jr. and Brandon Miller, the summer of 2021 with Bradley Beal Elite was fruitful.
Now, as the BBE teammates head back to their respective high schools for senior year, they’re being recognized as two of the top Class of 2022 prospects in the country.
ESPN recently released its list of the Top 100 for 2022 with both players landing inside the Top 15. Nick Smith Jr. just missed the Top 5, landing at No. 6 on the list with a five-star rating and a grade of 93. Brandon Miller wasn’t far behind, checking in at No. 13 on the list with a five-star rating and a grade of 91. Both players rank No. 1 in their respective states.
Neither player is currently committed to college, with both weighing several offers from some of the top programs in the country, making their upcoming senior seasons at Sylvan Hills High (AR) for Smith, and Cane Ridge High (TN) for Miller, that much more intriguing.
