We spent most of June and July on the road evaluating prospects from the DMV at various events, and now its time to take a look back at what we’ve learned. Here we begin by taking a look at some of the players who’ve helped themselves with consistently strong play over the summer. In this edition we spotlight five additional class of 2020 bigs that have done just that.

7’0 C Gabe Wuor | Team Durant/Wesley Christian (NC)

Since our first time seeing him last summer, Gabe Wuor has turned the corner significantly. A 7-footer who moves fluidly and has good hands, he is one of the most improved bigs we’ve seen in the local 2020 class. Wuor is dominating at this level right now, but he needs to continue to improve his strength if he wants to consistently do the same in college.

6’6 PF Cam Byers | Team BBC/Dulaney (MD)

Cam Byers was a flat out mismatch problem at the Maryland Team Camp. Bigger players have a tough time dealing with his quickness off the bounce and shot making ability. Byers would benefit by utilizing his size in the post against smaller defenders, and he tends to get caught out on the wing more often than we like, but his unique blend if size and skill is quite impressive.

7’1 C Hunter Dickinson | Team Takeover/DeMatha (MD)

Hunter Dickinson

It’s hard for one of the top ranked players in the region’s stock to rise any further, but Hunter Dickinson was able to make it happen some how. The cerebral and tough 7 footer dominated at each stop, and won a lot of games with the top ranked AAU team in the country. Dickinson is a primary target for high majors all over the country, and his lengthy offer sheet should only continue to expand over time. 

6’4 PF Jamal West | Team Thrill/St. Frances (MD)

Jamal West

He is listed as the shortest player in this article, but don’t be fooled because Jamal West is a dominant rebounder. His value lies in his versatility. West can defend a variety of positions all over the floor, and he boasts length which he bolsters with athleticism, toughness, and an extremely high motor.

6’11 C Mark Williams | Team Loaded VA/Norfolk Academy (VA)

Mark Williams

Mark Williams has a significantly high ceiling. Perhaps as high as any player on this list. Williams moved up to the 17U team this summer and fit in nicely, picking up a handful of high major offers throughout the process. Look for the emerging big man to only improve as he matures and his motor improves.
