  1. Florence High School is now 20@2 with no doubt the best player in Mississippi Carter Mullins. I believe there alot better than 5th in 5A.. There 1st or 2nd on most sites.. Thank you for covering Mississippi high school hoops though.

    1. Thanks for the comment. My rankings have a mixture of gut feeling and a numeric strength of schedule system. The strength of schedule knocked them down on my list according to my system. I’m also a big Carter Mullins fan. If you look back at all the times I’ve covered him I said he was a mixture of Larry Bird and Pistol Pete. He’s one of the most underrated players in the state.
