Preseason Women’s College Basketball Players Rankings – Class by Class!

Caitlin Clark of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

It is that time of year again! This is now my fifth(!) season of compiling these players rankings and this season will be prove to be unlike any other before due to COVID-19. It will be interesting to watch moving forward on how teams adapt to the different type of schedule this season.

The pre season rankings are a combination of what happened the previous year and as well as the expectations of what might occur this year. With that in mind, the pre season women’s college basketball player rankings for the 2020-2021 season which has the top 36 seniors, the top 27 juniors, the top 18 sophomores and the top 9 freshmen are listed below.
