Any college commits yet from this group? Who rates as the top white kid? Can he flop like a pro?

Yessssssss

I've heard St. Jude will have the best team in the league.

Better than St. George, IMO.

1. St. George - The dragons continue to have the best collection of athletes in CSAL. They are looking for back to back championships for at least the third or fourth time in Elite 8 history. Their coaching staff has been called the best Italian duo since Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Expect the typical full court press from start to finish (or at least until the game is in hand) that would make Nolan Richardson proud.

re: 7th Annual CSAL 8th Grade Preseason Basketball Rankings
After polling a wide range of coaches, fans, and players, an all time list has been compiled of the all time CSAL 8th grade basketball teams. Without further adieu, here is the countdown in reverse order.....

5- St Alphonsus 1999: great run in 8th grade year. Led by a future state champion quarterback. One of the more gritty teams in the countdown.

4- STM 2002: Elite 8 champion and one of the more dominant teams across a 3 year span. Had a good mix of guard play, big man, and shooting.

3- St Jude 1995: possibly the most athletically gifted team in the ranking. Roster loaded with future all state performers in both football and baseball. Played well as a basketball team although this team's real talent was in other arenas.

2- St George 1997: very gifted team. Had a great mix of athletic guards, lead by one of the better athletes in CSAL history. If the guards were shut down, they also had a strong shooter and a more than serviceable big man. The knock on this team was the depth of competition in that class. This was evident in the 96 STM 8th grade tournament where SGS tried to dance with the big boys but flamed out against a very deep class of 96.

1- STM 1996: the best pure basketball team as voted on by the panel. The San Antonio Spurs of the their time. Nothing flashy. Great defense. Great shooter mixed in with other solid scores from the outside. Solid guard play, athletic bigs. Not to mention a deep bench of grown men and a heady coach that utilized his talent to win games.

The fact that the '04 OLOM team isn't on that list makes it bull shit

I put a list similar to this together a few years ago. Top CSAL Basketball Teams

My ranking was as follows:
1. St. George 97
2. STM 96
3. St. George 98
4. STM 02
5. OLOM 04
6. Sacred Heart 00

The fact that you don't have the SGS 98 team on your list is ridiculous. They were overshadowed by the 97 team, but lost 3 games in 3 seasons and played up in some tournaments.
