Philadelphia is a hotbed for high school boys basketball talent, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the Philadelphia Catholic League, where some of the best private schools in the city, state and country are located.

The rivalries are intense and the basketball is high-octane. Boasting some of the most successful college programs in the country, Philly breeds some of the best prospects on the high school court.

Here is a list of a few rising juniors you should be aware of as the 2020-21 season takes flight.

Masud Stewart Masud Stewart 6'0" | PG Neumann-Goretti | 2022 State PA , PG Neumann Goretti: Stewart has everything you want in a point guard, including hops for his size. He can shoot from the outside with ease and looks confident from three. When he has the ball at the top of the key, he can dish it off to a teammate after penetrating the arc or can drive into the lane himself, creating space for a shot. Stewart is not afraid to draw contact and he can slow down or sleep up the tempo of the game on offense as he wants. If he gets on the break, he can throw it down.
