The 2020 class experienced an up and down sophomore campaign, but the class made waves over the summer. The class looks to continue the upward trend during their junior seasons. Below are strengths and weaknesses of the group. (Image Credits: HoopSceen and al.com)
Scoring Ability. This class has athletes that can get their teams buckets, and get them in a hurry. Most notable, would be Tommy Murr (Lindsey Lane) who lead the nation in scoring with almost 40 points per game. Kam Woods (Pinson Valley) is small in stature, but this kid also fills it up (27 points per game).
Size on the perimeter. Lately, a trend in Alabama high school basketball has been size on the wings. Like the 2019 class, The 2020 class features perimeter players that have size and can play multiple positions. The class has 19 perimeter wings in the the top 50 that are 6’3 and over.
Point guard depth. The 2020 Top 50 features only 9 point guards and the talent level is all over the map. Two players (Murr and Woods) stick out and gain a lot of attention, but the talent level takes a dip after that. Look for the point guards in the top 50 to build off solid AAU seasons and climb the rankings during the year.
Low-major post prospects. Overall, the class has a lack of D1 post prospects, but D2 schools would find a lot of value in the 2020 class right now. Rongie Gordon (Sindey Lanier) and Cameron Boozer (Lanett) lead the post prospects, but if prospects like Andres Burney (Pike County), Reginald Perry (Fairfield), and Sawyer Wright (Deshler) have big years, low-major schools will have more prospects to keep their eye on.
