Grassroots
Maryland/D.C.

Posted On: 02/18/18 10:27 AM

As we hit the halfway point of the high school season, we’ve been able to get out and see almost every prospect in the area. Unfortunately, entering the new year of 2018 means we only have a few more months to enjoy these players in their high school uniforms. If you haven’t already, be sure to get out and watch some of these tremendous student athletes.

You can view part one here.

Jordan Goodwin | 6’1 | Milford Mill/Mid-Atlantic Select

Previous ranking: 74

New ranking: 65

Goodwin has been on a scoring tear this year for the 16-3 Millers. Coming into this season, the Millers already had a seasoned, talented roster. But once Goodwin decided to transfer from St. Frances, it put them in the conversation as legitimate 3A title contenders. They play a very entertaining style that includes an infinite amount of three-point attempts. Luckily for them, Goodwin is a sniper from deep. We’ll see if he can continue to lead them to the Xfinity Center once March rolls around.

Tyree Myers

Tyree Myers | 6’1 | Mt. St. Joseph/Team Melo

Previous ranking: 52

New ranking: 72

Despite being the floor general for a very good Mt. St. Joe team, Myers experiences a slip in his rankings. It isn’t so much that his individual play has weakened, it’s that others made major jumps in their own right to be moved up. Myers has been a solid set up, pass first point guard for head coach Pat Clatchey and will look to be an impact player on both ends as they chase the MIAA and BCL crowns in the next coming weeks.

Connor Walsh | 6’4 | Boys’ Latin/Jersey Shore Warriors

Previous ranking: 66

New ranking: 81

The reason for Walsh’s dip is the fact that he was forced to miss the entire season with a leg injury that he suffered during football season. The 6’4 athletic guard would’ve given an already good Lakers squad one more play maker and could’ve put them in the realistic conversation of winning a conference title. Fortunately, Walsh will get another chance to play on the hardwood as well as the gridiron as he committed to Stonehill College as a dual-sport athlete.

Cleveland Horton | 6’2 | Poly/Cecil Kirk

Previous ranking: 65

New ranking: 83

Horton has been the glue guy for a Poly team that just won their second-straight Baltimore City Division I crown last night. The scrappy, hard-nosed defender brings grit on both ends in a league that requires this style of play night in and night out. Horton has improved on his jump shot as well. Last season, there was a slight hitch in his release, but after countless hours of reps, he has worked it out into a one fluid motion. His shooting percentages have improved since.

Demauri Warren | 6’3 | Woodlawn/Team Rebel

Previous ranking: 88

New ranking: 85

Warren headed into this season recovering from a meniscus injury that he suffered during football season. Luckily for both he and his team, he bounced back just fine and remains a key factor in the Warriors’ 16-3 overall record. Warren is a great athlete that finished well around the basket and is a pesky defender. Although his jump shot has improved, he doesn’t settle much, especially if there’s any indication that a driving lane may present itself.
