Members of the Prep Hoops SoCal staff put their collective minds together to come up with the most comprehensive rankings the region has to offer for the class of 2021. In keeping with our content theme of breaking down this rankings update, in this piece we take a look at some of the underrated defenders in this class.

Barry WildsBarryWilds5'11" | CGFairfax | 2021State, Fairfax - It was rare to see Fairfax in a straight-up man-to-man defensive scheme because its full court pressure was so effective, but Wilds thrived in both settings. The lightning-quick 5-foot-11 guard not only hounded ball handlers into turnovers, but he used that speed, along with his anticipation ability, to shoot passing lanes for steals and deflections.

Tyson RobinsonTysonRobinson6'0" | CGEl Camino | 2021State, El Camino - The 6-foot combo guard is built like a defensive back and possesses the speed and physicality of one, as well. Robinson, with those aforementioned traits and his lateral speed, has the ability to speed up and contain most of the primary ball handlers he defends. Robinson also has a quick set of hands which allow him to pick pocket his opponent when they get loose with the basketball.

TJ MuhammadTJMuhammad5'7" | PGCrossroads | 2021State, Crossroads -
