PrepHoops Maryland recently updated the class of 2019 player rankings. Getting a list of 75 players and choosing which rank best fits the individual was not easy, but we do our best to keep them updated every three months. We love finding out about new players, and we’ve done so since our last update. Here is part one of our breakdown series featuring newcomers.
We got a very good look at Nendah Tarke during the DeMatha Summer League, and he was very impressive in a number of areas. He is a high level athlete that can score in bunches. Tarke rebounds well out of his area, and displays toughness. He scores from uncommon angles, and plays above the rim. The 6’2 guard is the 20th ranked junior in the latest update.
Collin Schlee is flat out relentless, and that’s a big reason why he checks in to the updated rankings at #38. He’s a skilled, crafty guard that can score from three levels, and is adept from with his pull up jumper from the mid range areas. Schlee is also a smart defender.
Devon Dunn is an active wing that moves well off the ball, and we saw during the DeMatha Summer League that he can consistently knock down three point shots. He’s a crafty finisher, and doesn’t mind contact at the rim. Dunn checks into the rankings at #56.
Marley Sume, the #58 ranked 2019 prospect in Maryland/DC, is aggressive guard that can guard multiple positions. He attacks well off the bounce. Sume is an unselfish, high IQ player that gets others involved.
Miles Gally is a long limbed forward that can stretch the floor. He’s a good passer who plays wit ha high motor, and is an improving as a scorer with his back to the basket. The 6’9 junior ranks 59th in the updated rankings.
Albert Jackson is a versatile wing that can stretch the floor, but works hard inside. He’s crafty around the basket, and can score in the post against smaller defenders. Jackson enters the rankings at #61.
Elijah Williams, the 62nd ranked prospect in the updated Prep Hoops Maryland rankings, is a long wing that defends multiple positions. He plays with a high motor, and an knock down shots from the perimeter off the catch. Williams, the younger brother of UPenn freshman Jelani, is becoming a more explosive athlete as he continues to grow into his body.
Steve Settle is still very raw, but has good length and mobility for his a 6’7 forward. He must learn to stay consistently engaged at all times. Settle ranks 63rd in the latest update.
