Prep Hoops Maryland recently updated the class of 2020 player rankings. Gathering a list of players and choosing which rank best fits the individual was an extremely difficult challenge, but we do our best to keep them updated every three months. Our recent update included a reduction in the number of players ranked from 65 to 55. Here we highlight six unranked players who could make the next cut.

6’6 PF Michael Bass | Whitman

Michael Bass is a long and athletic 6-foot-6 forward who missed some time with injury this spring, but has been recently cleared to play at summer league. He will bolster the front court at Whitman with his rebounding ability and high motor. Bass is expected to make a strong case to enter our next update.

6‘7 C Churchill Bounds | Stephen Decatur

One thing you can’t ignore is the sheer size that Churchill Bounds possesses. Not only is he close to 6-foot-8, but he’s also sturdily built. Bounds moves bodies in the paint, and will only improve as he continues to grow into his body.

6’4 SF Brandon Murray | Boys’ Latin

It’s been a while since we’ve last seen Brandon Murray play, but he was a personal favorite of ours because of his versatility and basketball IQ. If he does suit up for Boys’ Latin in the winter, he should have a chance to contribute consistently.

6’2 PG Ronald Polite | Oxon Hill

6-foot-2 lead guard Ronald Polite was not on our radar prior to this spring and summer, where we’ve seen him with DC Premier and his high school squad. Owning long-limbs, he is a skilled and crafty floor general with solid potential as a college prospect, and is a no-brainer to jump into our next update.

6’3 SG Daquan Reese | Parkville

At 6-foot-3, Daquan Reese is certainly athletic enough to be considered a college prospect. He is able to score from all three levels, and has the tools to become a solid player. We love that he consistently competes hard.

6’1 PG Alex Williams | Maret 

Maret’s Alex Williams should jump into a more significant role this season, and possibly propel himself into our next rankings update as a result. We love his energy, athleticism, and shot making ability. Williams has solid defensive potential as a result of his length and quickness.
