Recruiting: Top 15 uncommitted 2024 boys basketball prospects

A look at the top high school boys basketball senior recruits that remain uncommitted

Fifteen of the top 22 boys basketball recruits in the class of 2024 remain uncommitted with Dylan Harper and Tre Johnson, the No. 1 and No. 3 prospects respectively, headlining those 15 players. 

The evaluation period, where college coaches can only watch an athlete play in person or visit their school without communicating with the recruit off campus, is about to wrap up. More offers, visits and commitments will start to appear down the pipeline in the upcoming months - especially for the top uncommitted class of 2024 prospects. 

Here are the top 15 uncommitted senior boys basketball prospects, as of July 19:
