Seventeen players from Maryland and DC have already committed to play division one basketball, with many more expected to follow in the upcoming weeks and months. Here is a breakdown of how the five most recent commits could fit in at the next level.
Will Wade landed one of the nation’s elite shooters in James Bishop. A 6-foot-3 southpaw who is best described as a prolific scoring guard, Bishop has worked hard to improve his ball handling and playmaking ability, which we should see throughout this season and beyond.
Cameron Brown possesses a rugged 6-foot-6 frame which should help him cope from day one at William & Mary, where he will have the chance to continue his growth and development into an excellent two way wing. Brown, who was being actively recruited by several local division one programs, will also take advantage of the high academic standards given his strong record in the classroom.
Merrimack recently made the move to division one, and one of their first 2019 commits was Ziggy Reid. A robustly built 6-foot-5 wing with versatility and great touch from the perimeter, Reid has the chance to develop into a reliable scoring option both inside and out.
Louis Tang is a flat out steal for VMI. The 6-foot-5 wing, who has done nothing but improve consistently since his arrival in the states last year, looked very strong and explosive during our recent trip to Ryken. Tang will bring a high motor, a steadily improving skill set, and the ability to produce in a variety of categories to the next level.
Kamari Williams has as much upside as any prospect in the local 2019 class when considering his blend of size and shooting ability. Legitimately listed at 6-foot-8, Williams will benefit from going through an ACC level strength and conditioning program, and from there will be given a good platform to showcase his skills.
