The class of 2020 is loaded in terms of talent in the state of Maryland. There are a handful of kids that are becoming household names as they continue to put forth strong efforts early on in their sophomore campaigns. For Bishop McNamara, Kenneth Womack is one of those sophomores that has been showing a lot of promise thus far.
Womack made the varsity team as a freshman. There are many adjusments that freshman need to make in order to win over the trust of their coaches, so when Womack got his chances throughout the course of the season, he played well. The 5’11 point guard played his AAU ball with DC Premier’s 15U team, where he helped them to a top 10 ranking in the Under Armour Association.
Over his spring/summer, Womack wanted to focus on becoming a consistent shot-maker from the outside. The lefty has nice shooting form on his release, now it was up to him to put in the hours and repetitions so that it could carry over into his sophomore season.
I’ve seen Womack play a few times this year and he plays with great confidence. He’s quick off the dribble and isn’t afraid to take the ball to the rim and finish through contact. He also is an efficient operator in pick-and-roll situations and is able to see the pocket passes form and execute solid passes to open rollers. Defensively, Bishop McNamara is a terror because of their constant ball pressure and trapping whether it be in man-t0-man or zone. Womack has active hands and good anticipation that help him become the beneficiary of a plethora of steals.
Womack is still very much a work in progress. This season, he knows what he has to work on.
“Guarding the ball and keeping my man in front of me,” Womack told Prep Hoops. “I want to be the guy who takes a lot of charges as well. Boxing out, rebounding and just all of the small things that help the team get the win.”
No schools have started to contact Womack at this point, but he knows what he can bring to a college program aside from his 3.5 GPA.
“I’m going to bring constant energy, a leader and a floor general,” Womack said.
