There’s a lot of high school and grassroots basketball left to be played for the kids included in our 2020 Prospect Rankings. Some players will play their way up the rankings, while others will digress and fall out. For that reason, most of these players aren’t a priority for college programs at this point in their career — it’s just too early!
As of right now, we have 105 prospects from the 2020 class who we’ve seen enough from to believe they’re future college hoopers. We look forward to explaining their spots in our rankings throughout the week with articles like this one, which is focusing on the combo guards and two-guards of 2020.
Rasile set the Ohio state record for most three-pointers in a season last year for McDonald. Safe to say that Rasile’s jumper will continue re-writing the history books for his high school team and maybe even Ohio. The kid is confident from wherever on the floor.
Maciag transferred from Massillon Jackson to Pickerington Central during the summer. We don’t expect him to crack the varsity rotation as a sophomore, given the Tigers loaded backcourt. However, Maciag is an ultra competitive defender that can handle and shoot it.
Grau is a shooting specialist — a skill that translated to every floor he played on this grassroots season with the Queen City Prophets.
Awls has all the skills. He can get pretty much everywhere on the floor with his ball-handling and has an off-the-dribble shooting game that is mature beyond his years. However, we need to see Awls assert himself more often, as he can drift out of games.
Ray has point guard size but is truly a shooting specialist. If he can prove capable of creating shots for himself and/or others, he’ll see his ranking rise. At the least, he should be able to spread the floor for Anthony Wayne over the next couple of seasons.
