Six ranked players on this year’s Top 25 Under 25 have been revealed. Usually there’s a lot of disagreement about the order of the lower ranked players, but who they are is not often heavily contested. Let’s find out if that’s true this year as well.

Official Vote

Right from the start, a new trend is evident in the official vote. There is more consensus on who to vote for than has been usual for the lowest ranked players.

#25 Brandon Lisowsky got six votes.


Where do you see Lisowsky in four years?

#22 Ryan Tverberg is a late-round draft pick coming off a hot year. There’s a lot more drafted prospects taken in the late rounds on the list this year. He also got six votes.

#21 Semyon Der-Arguchintsev has dropped a lot of rankings from last year, while several players left or aged out above him. It’s safe to say the official voters have cooled towards him overall. He was also unranked by two voters.

Community Vote

#25 Curtis Douglas

Unranked by the official voters, he had a weighted average of 20.80 in the Community Vote.

Note: For the community vote, every player got votes somewhere, and yet not every voter ranked everyone beyond the top 25 or took the lower rankings seriously. For tabulation, all rankings below 25 were considered “unranked”. They’re shown here for illustration of the vote only.

#24 Filip Král

Not yet revealed on the official vote, Král’s weighted average was 20.59, which puts him extremely close to being tied with fellow Marlie Douglas.

#23 Dmitri Ovchinnikov

Also not yet revealed on the official vote, his average was 20.34.

#22 Nicholas Moldenhauer

Keeping the theme going, Moldenhauer also ranked higher on the official list, where here he has an average of 19.91.

#21 Dennis Hildeby

Ranked at 24th on the official list, we largely agree on his spot. Here he has an average of 19.90, a virtual tie with Moldenhauer.

#20 Ryan Tverberg

Ranked at 22nd on the official list, we have even more agreement on Tverberg, whose average is 19.80, putting him very close to the two below him.

Next week, we’ll see six more players, and the Community Vote jumps in average to 19.18 for the 19th ranked player on that list and the official vote jumps to 18.22 for its #19, so we all saw a difference in the very bottom six and the lower middle of our lists.
