Another graduating class has come and gone. Once again, the blending of current talent and future potential levels has been carefully weighed to create this year's version of the Top 50 Canadians by Position in the Class of 2013. All prospects were reviewed via in person at a gym, live webcast, and/or archived video. Similar to past analyses, the best Canadian prospects were first classified into a specific position and then placed in order next to their peers.

*The anthropocentric measurements provided by Canada Basketball at the recent Junior National Team tryouts were used for heights (without shoes) in several cases.
*No overaged players were included.
*This is not an equivalent to the top 50 overall prospects in the Class of 2013.
*Several can be considered more "combo forwards" or "combo guards". Each were placed in the position of best fit right now and can be subject to change in time.
*Any commitments have been designated in BOLD next to the prospect’s name. 
*To view more commitments from this year’s group, please consult the HoopStars Canada Commitment Update.
