2027 Finals Rankings are out! Congratulations to all the teams on this list to a fantastic season! Please keep in mind that these rankings are based on teams body of work over the entire season and to us AAU Nationals is the gold standard! If you win AAU Nationals you are the #1 team in the country (much like the NCAA tournament). If you think you are ranked too high or ranked too low or you aren’t ranked and think you should be then state your case and let us hear why? No rankings are perfect and we are not above correcting mistakes we feel are legitimate. The sole purpose of these rankings is to recognize team we feel deserve to be recognized and to spark a debate and discussion. Please keep in mind that no cash prizes were awarded to the ranked teams. Hope you enjoy!! Please go follow @nationalyouthbballreport_2027 for all your cover for 2027 teams and players.
