While we’re certainly taking things one day at a time, the prospects of high school basketball occurring in the DMV this winter are more promising now than they have been in quite a while. In anticipation of this, we will be rolling out preview content over the next several weeks. Here is a look at the Preseason All-Sophomore Teams for Virginia Private Schools. 

First Team

G - Mason SoMasonSo6'0" | CGBishop O'Connell | 2023VA

So impressed throughout his freshman campaign, and got better in the playoffs. He'll be a fun player to watch as he develops. 

G - DeShawn Harris-SmithDeShawnHarris-Smith6'4" | SFPaul VI | 2023VA

Harris-Smith became a key rotation player from an early stage at PVI. His influence should only grow within the program. 

G - Curtis Blair IIICurtisBlair III6'6" | PFSteward School | 2023#42NationVA

Blair has improved drastically in the last 12 months and appears to still just be scratching the surface. Steward's main man should thrive this season given his added responsibilities. 

F - Steven StinsonStevenStinson6'5" | SFTrinity Episcopal | 2023VA

Stinson doesn't look like your average sophomore because he's sturdily built, and he doesn't play like one either because his feel for the game is advanced. He was a no-brainer to make the first team. 

C - Mason SoMasonSo6'0" | CGBishop O'Connell | 2023VA So impressed throughout his freshman campaign, and got better in the playoffs. He'll be a fun player to watch as he develops.  G - DeShawn Harris-SmithDeShawnHarris-Smith6'4" | SFPaul VI | 2023VA Harris-Smith became a key rotation player from an early stage at PVI.

He was a no-brainer to make the first team.  C - Carter LangCarterLang6'8" | CSt. Anne's Belfield | 2023VA Lang has looked good during the offseason and is headed in the right direction. He'll be an important player for STAB this year and beyond.  Second  Team G - Jayden Harris Harris has a chance to make serious noise with Christ Chapel this season. He's got all the tools to be a premier scoring threat in the DMV, but his defensive versatility should not be overlooked. G - Khalil WilliamsKhalilWilliams6'2" | CGPotomac School | 2023VA Williams has asserted himself as a potent weapon from behind the arc. His confidence is sky-high right now and he appears poised for a breakout.  F - Desmond RobertsDesmondRoberts6'5" | SFVirginia Episcopal | 2023VA Roberts played significant minutes for VES as a freshman. He's part of an intriguing young core that has a chance to be very good collectively. F - Luke SmithLukeSmith6'8" | PFCollegiate | 2023VA Smith is the type of big man you can build an offense around. Double-doubles should become a norm for him at Collegiate moving forward. C - Eli DeLaurier DeLaurier has been making a statement with his performances at various showcase events this fall. His effort is his main selling point and that will translate.  Third Team G - Robby Matos Matos is another nice young prospect coming up at VES. He's an explosive athlete who is a difference-maker on both ends. G - Sam BrannenSamBrannen5'11" | CGNorfolk Collegiate | 2023VA Brannen is expected to see an uptick in usage, and he seems ready to absorb the added responsibility. Look for the high IQ lead guard to step up. G - Stark JonesStarkJones6'1" | CGRoanoke Catholic | 2023VA Jones shined for Roanoke Catholic as a freshman. He's established himself as a name to monitor from Southwest Virginia. G - Marvin Brimage Brimage is a big guard who will have a chance to contribute at Bishop Ireton. He has a lot of talent and it will be interesting to see how he handles the expectations.  C - Patrick O’BrienPatrickO’Brien6'8" | CHighland School | 2023VA  O'Brien is considered one of the better bigs locally in his class. He'll be a must-watch player at Highland.
