Here’s a broad overview of our updated rankings, taking a look at some of the trends we’ve seen so far. Stay tuned for more in depth breakdowns of the 2019 class, and 2020 rankings!
CHANGES IN THE TOP 10
EJ Jarvis has been a double-double machine and a defensive stalwart for Maret School this season. The 6’8 big man, who is hearing from several mid to high level division one programs, moves back into the top five after the departure of Marial Mading. The other new name in the top 10 is Anthony Walker, who is coming into his own this season for Perry Hall. The athletic 6’9 junior is likely set to see a major expansion in recruitment this spring and summer.
WINTER STOCK BOOSTERS
#13 | RONELL GILES | PALLOTTI | PREVIOUS RANK: #21
Ronell Giles has grown a bit since the summer, and is probably close to 6’4 now. Not only is he a solid defender, but he is also a prolific threat on offense.
#16 | BASS DIOP | ST. FRANCES | PREVIOUS RANK: #34
Bassiroui Diop has been a key contributor for a very good SFA team this season. All this kid does is produce and work hard.
#20 | JALEN RUCKER | GILMAN | PREVIOUS RANK: #43
What he lacks in size, Jalen Rucker makes up for with his toughness, skill, and feel for the game. We like his ability to defend, shoot from deep, and consistently get in the lane where he likes to create.
#21 | DREW GREEN | MCDONOGH | PREVIOUS RANK: #36
#26 | GILBERT OTOO | PALLOTTI | PREVIOUS RANK: #44
Gilbert Otoo is the type of player that can come in and do a variety of things which can impact the game. At 6’5, he’s a really good mid range jump shooter with size, and you won’t find may players who will outwork him.
