It’s that time of year for a refreshing of our player rankings here at Prep Hoops Maryland and this will be our last release of the 2020 class before they begin their next chapter. It was a pleasure to watch this class develop from their freshmen seasons into prize prospects from college programs of all levels. As usual, I’ll handle the prospects located primarily in the Baltimore and immediate surrounding areas for my breakdowns. We move to the guard who appeared in the 51-100 range. 

Michael GrayMichaelGray5'10" | PGLake Clifton | 2020StateMD | 5’11 | Lake Clifton

Previous ranking: 61

Current ranking: 51

Gray led the Lakers to the Class 1A Final Four as they were pursuing their second-straight state title. The 5-foot-11 guard had cemented himself as one of the toughest guards you can find. A relentless defender who was also an above average rebounder, Gray improved his overall game as senior. His jumper became more consistent off the dribble from the mid-range area and three. Finishing at the rim has always been his strong suit, and it stayed that way this season. Gray should fit in seamlessly at Wagner with his physicality and competitiveness.

Jarod RobinsonJarodRobinson6'3" | SGGlenelg Country | 2020StateMD | 6’3 | Glenelg Country Previous ranking: 71 Current ranking: 75 Robinson had some nice moments throughout the season for a Glenelg Country team who was underwhelming throughout the season. The 6-foot-3 guard is a capable shot maker and has good basketball IQ. He was able to guard multiple positions in the MIAA A Conference and will be an interesting prospect to watch develop as he heads to Shepard University. John GodinezJohnGodinez5'10" | PGParkville | 2020StateMD | 5’9 | Parkville Previous ranking: 120 Current ranking: 79 Godinez shot up the rankings and for good reason. The 5-foot-9 floor general was dominant as he led Parkville to a 22-3 season and had the Knights preparing for the Class 4A Final Four following his 35-point performance in the previous game. Godinez is extremely shifty and quick as a ball handler. He gets to his spot in the mid-range and shoots with efficiency. He can knock down three’s off the catch or off the dribble and is a surgeon in the pick and roll. Godinez has a couple of NAIA offers with a slew of Division II schools tracking him closely. Emanuel HenriquesEmanuelHenriques6'4" | SGBen Franklin | 2020StateMD | 6’4 | Ben Franklin Previous ranking: 85 Current ranking: 81 Henriques led Ben Franklin throughout the 2019-20 season with his versatility, athleticism and skill at 6-foot-4. There are times where he could look for his own more often and while it probably would’ve put his team in a better position to win, Henriques was more focused on making the right play. This gives reason to believe he will flourish at Gannon University, a very competitive Division II school. Noah CharlesNoahCharles6'0" | PGGlenelg Country | 2020StateMD | 6’0 | Glenelg Country Previous ranking: 75 Current ranking: 84 Charles put together a solid senior campaign as he played the facilitator for Glenelg Country. Night in and night out Charles had to face a skilled point guard and not only held his own, but also got the better of his match up in some situations. He’s a skilled finisher around the basket who showcased soft touch even when being contested by a rotating big. He’s more confident in isolation situations and getting the shots he wants in the mid-range, while also being a catch-and-shoot threat from beyond the arc. Charles is a good on-ball defender who uses his lateral quickness to turn the ball handler and stay in front of shifty guards. Lorenzo DonadioLorenzoDonadio6'3" | SGBoys’ Latin | 2020StateMD | 6’3 | Boys’ Latin Previous ranking: 122 Current ranking: 89 We didn’t have much intel on Donadio when he came to the area last summer from Farragut Academy, but he quickly put the MIAA on notice with his skill. The 6-foot-3 guard is a three-level scorer who does so efficiently within a system. Donadio can be lethal from beyond the arc while also being a threat off the dribble to finish with craft around the rim. The Lakers were one of the smallest teams in the area. As a result, Donadio had to spend time at the four and even the five, but did a great job at corralling rebounds and pushing tempo himself in transition. A few low major programs have been tracking Donadio. He currently has no offers, which raises my belief that some high level Division II’s should start reaching out.
