As we continue to breakdown our prospect rankings, we take a look at part two of the bigs who play high school basketball in the Hampton Roads and Richmond areas.

Shawn Saunders | 6’4” | Green Run (#73 Overall)

Saunders has been a production machine the past couple of seasons for Green Run, and his strength and versatility has been the biggest reason. He’s a stretch four that can knock down shots from deep, and he’s able to crash the offensive glass to create extra opportunities for his team.

Jack Wyatt | 6’6” | Collegiate (#84 Overall)

Jack Wyatt

Wyatt, who committed to Hamden-Sydney of the ODAC, was one of the biggest reasons for Collegiate School’s resurrection this past Eason. The 6’6” big has great touch with both hands, he seals and finishes and has a good skill set as he can put it on the deck and score in face up and back to the basket situations. He should compete for immediate playing time next year.

Nathaniel Pollard | 6’5” | Highland Springs (#112 Overall)

Nathaniel Pollard

One of the more productive guys in the Richmond area, Pollard has been a double-double guy the past couple of years. He has a great skill set, a high motor and he’s willing to work for whatever he gets. While he’s just 6’5”, he battles in the post, he has the ability to step out and make shots, he passes well and he defends multiple positions.

Tyrone Coley | 6’6” | Meadowbrook (#115 Overall)

Tyrone Coley

If I’m a JUCO school, Coley has to be at the top of my list for recruiting. The 6’6” big from Meadowbrook has a ton of potential and a very high ceiling if he continues to work hard. He has great length and is an explosive athlete, making him able to dominate in the paint, and he has good hands and a soft touch as well.

Jachon Brown | 6’8” | Green Run (#137 Overall)

Brown is a massive individual who plays well in spurts for his team. He can shoot the midrange, score with either hand around the basket, rebounds on both ends and he can alter shots without leaving his feet. He needs to get his weight under control, but he can do a lot of things you can’t teach.

Brody McDevitt | 6’4” | Poquoson (#146 Overall)

McDevitt is extremely skilled which helped him sneak in the top 150. He’s a guy who can stretch the floor with his shooting ability, score in the post with both hands and he can run the floor easily. His versatility extends to the defensive end, where he can guard multiple positions as well.
