Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 06/30/19 1:15 PM

This past Wednesday, our updated rankings for the 2021 class released. There has been significant movement throughout as players capitalized off of strong endings to their respective high school seasons and have been productive so far this summer.

For this set of articles, I’ll break down the prospects from the Baltimore area that landed in the rankings.

Ahmad Harrison | 6'1 | Gerstell/Team Thrill

Ranking: No. 26

Harrison is a 6-foot-1 guard that fills many different roles for Gerstell. Because of their lack of height, Harrison is featured sometimes as the wing or power forward and while he gives up a ton of height at those positions, his toughness and IQ allow him to be effective. It also forces him to be a rebounding presence and from there, Harrison can lead the break where he makes sound decisions. Offensively, Harrison is most effective in isolation situations where he can use his shiftiness with the ball to free himself for an open shot. He’s fearless when it comes to driving to the basket and embraces contact.  Harrison holds offers from Virginia Tech, St. John's and Bryant.

Byron Irleand | 6'2 | St.
