2024 Top Incoming Freshmen Spotlight list – Minnesota 

Hoop Stars Media 2024 list is composed of 30 + of the best up and coming freshmen to be in the class of 2024 in the state of Minnesota.  We have watched these players grow and develop in many cases from 3rd grade until now.  Many on the list have continued to develop over the years and have played elite level AAU basketball each year producing AAU National championships, NY2LA champions, big time wins over long standing national programs and, going against many of the country’s best players and teams successfully from across the country.  In doing so, many on this list have done very well in making a name for themselves nationally and putting the Minnesota class of 2024 right in the national conversation yet again with some of the best recent classes in Minnesota.  Many AAU programs have done a great job at developing the next up and coming generation of Minnesota High School basketball players.  Minnesota Spartans, Team GetShook, Team Tyus, Grassroots Sizzle and many more…   

As we begin to break down the list we will be adding new names in the coming weeks.  Our articles will be by position, skills and where they are today and with continued growth what the future can look like for these prospects.  This list will continue to grow in the coming months.   

The class of 2024 is littered with elite point guards, shooters, wings and bigs.  Please note this list is in no particular order this list is loaded with talented kids that have bright futures and we will cover that fact.
