As we transition into high school season, it's time to look at some players that could have big-time and breakout seasons this Fall. You won't see hundreds upon hundreds of names on this list, or Top 150 Players. it is comprised mostly of players whose names may not yet be known on the national stage, and those who are just beginning to peak, nominated by coaches and selected by us. Today our focus is on the junior class, half way through their high school career and ready to tear it up on the court.

We present to you the Setters of the Class of 2025 High School Watchlist. You can also check out the full Class of 2024 Watchlist as well as the Outside/Right-Side Hitters of 2025, the Middle Blockers as well as the Setters!
