Here are my new updated and final player rankings and evaluations of the Top 30 prospects in Arizona's 2020 Senior Class. This class of prospects has really developed in the state of Arizona, even though Kyree Walker (Hillcrest Prep), Nico Mannion (University of Arizona), Shon Robinson (Ole Miss), Addison Patterson (University of Oregon) and Jaron Artest (UC-Irvine) each graduated early, and became members of Arizona's 2019 Class of prospects. Even without these elite prospects as part of the class, the class is still absolutely loaded with talented prospects that will now begin transitioning to the collegiate ranks.
Here are my final player rankings for the class by numerical order. This list has also been distributed to college coaches, media and scouts around the country . . .

He is a good rebounder on both ends of the floor and a good finisher inside the paint. Primarily a finisher around the basket, and in transition after running the floor. He runs the floor very well and and has a good overall motor on the court. Andre has excellent potential for the future and has a great deal of upside as a player and prospect, and he is a very good looking prospect overall. He is still raw offensively and needs some skill work to become much more of a threat on the offensive end of the floor, but his presence on the defensive end is worthy of serious attention.

Dusell has not become the player or prospect that it was envisioned that he would become years ago, but he has developed into a very good prospect today.
