As we start rounding third base on our player ranking breakdowns for the class of 2018, check out part one, two, three and four.
Cleveland Horton | 6’2 | Poly/Cecil Kirk
Previous Ranking: 65
New Ranking: 65
Horton is an under the radar prospect that is one of the best on-ball defenders in the area. He plays with great effort and intensity. The physical 6’2 guard can finish through contact around the rim and has improved on his outside shot immensely from last season. Horton is an important piece to the Engineer’s blueprint to bring back the 3A state title this upcoming season.
Connor Walsh | 6’4 | Boys’ Latin/Jersey Shore Warriors
Previous Ranking: 57
New Ranking: 66
Walsh is a score-first mentality type of guard. His length and size at 6’4 often times gives him a mismatch against his match up, which ultimately helps him get his shot off from three. His quick first step forces his match up to stay honest every time he catches the ball, and when he does get the better of his defender he can finish around the rim. Walsh moves well without the ball coming off screens or setting screens himself and either popping or rolling. At the high school level, Walsh can guard some power forwards defensively, but in college he’ll likely stick to shooting guards and small forwards. He can also be thrown on point guards and because of his length, it makes getting a shot off to be a challenge.
Kendall McMillian | 6’2 | Mt. St. Joseph/Maryland 3D
Previous Ranking: 94
New Ranking: 68
McMillian had a productive summer for Maryland 3D playing a big part in their success. Throughout the way, he continued to show the continued maturity in his game. Playing on a loaded Mt. St. Joseph squad, McMillian has to pick and choose his spots on when he should look to score. This summer, he did a good job improving his efficiency from all three levels so that when he does have his opportunities this season he will capitalize. He has a high basketball IQ and knows how to get his teammates the ball where they are successful.
Braxton Foreman | 6’5 | Thomas Johnson/Team Melo Red
Previous Ranking: Not ranked
New Ranking: 71
Foreman has nice size and elite shooting ability from three. He battled a nasty ankle injury that kept him out the month of July, but before then he put together a nice body of work for Team Melo Red. The 6’5 wing will be a go-to option for Thomas Johnson this season and looks to pick up his recruitment more since missing out on the live period.
Jordan Goodwin | 6’2 | Milford Mill/Mid-Atlantic Select
Previous Ranking: 73
New Ranking: 74
Goodwin continued to develop his game this summer with Mid-Atlantic Select as he was the go-to scoring option. He did his job well, recording multiple games with 25 or more points. Goodwin made the decision to transfer to Milford Mill where he will be a go-to option once again while also focusing on developing more point guard skills. Goodwin holds an offer from Siena
