125: Scout No. 3 Ethan Lizak's Top Game All You Want

Kudos to Ethan Lizak, for showing all the naysayers why his top game is unscoutable. He moves into the top three after his thrilling, come-from-behind victory over Nick Piccininni. That moves Darian Cruz down to No. 5, which looks as weird to us as it does to you. 

Connor Schram moves down due to his loss to Brandon Cray, as does Zeke Moisey after suffering another defeat. Barlow McGhee makes his return to the top 20 after several quality wins, and Drew Mattin makes his debut after his redshirt was officially pulled.
