Eli Grant is one of the 3A Boys names you might be growing a lot more familiar with over the next three years.

In this article, we set out to answer the question of which 3A Boys program had the top freshman class in the spring of 2017. This won't necessarily translate into the top team of 2018, but it will definitely have a bearing on that designation. 

More importantly, perhaps, it's easy to overlook the freshman class because you typically don't hear a lot about most of these kids. So, this is a chance to shine a little light on the up-and-coming athletes in the ranks of 3A Boys. I can't vouch for all the athletes in question staying at the schools they're listed with over the next three years, but things should stay reasonably close to what you see here.

Note: These rankings were taken directly out of the MileSplit virtual meet tool, so some of the links copied over into the article won't be functional.

Interestingly, though the order changes up a bit, the top four teams below were also similarly represented in the actual state meet scoring this spring. So, the team powers in place in 3A Boys look to be mostly the team powers that will be staying in place over the next few years.
