The 2017 class is shaping up to be extremely solid with a lot of talented freshman to be.

We'll be asking each of the players 20 questions to get to know some of them as they start their high school career.

Ryan was also named the Top Marksman and made the "All Elite" Team at KBA's Freshman Elite Camp earlier this Summer.
