Prep Hoops Maryland recently updated the class of 2021 rankings, and now it’s time to take a closer look. Here we highlight 8 underrated lead guards who remain unsigned.

#70 | Juan BellJuanBell6'0" | PGNational Christian | 2021StateMD | National Christian

Bell can play the point guard position at a high level on both ends of the floor. He sets the tone with his defense, can handle the ball under pressure and makes smart decisions on the offensive end. 

#72 | Jaylen HallJaylenHall6'0" | PGNew Hope | 2021StateMD | New Hope

Hall is a terrific shot-maker from the lead guard spot but he also brings intensity defensively. He impressed last season while logging heavy minutes and handling a lion's share of his team's ball-handling duties. 

#82 | Rasheed DupreeRasheedDupree5'5" | PGKIPP | 2021StateMD | KIPP

Dupree is a certified winner who is always making plays on both ends of the court. He's often the smallest guy on the floor but usually tends to make the biggest impact. 

#88 | Roland PoliteRolandPolite6'0" | PGOxon Hill | 2021StateMD | Oxon Hill

Polite probably won't wow you with his stats, but watch him play and you'll understand his value. He's an excellent ball distributor who holds his own defensively.

One of the things that go overlooked about his game is how hard he plays. Margarites is usually first to the floor for a 50/50 whether it's in or out of his area.  #114 | James QuinnJamesQuinn6'0" | PGTuscarora | 2021StateMD | Tuscarora Quinn is a dependable shot-maker from the lead guard spot who is tidy with the ball. He knows how to manipulate the defense with his eyes and utilizes ball fakes effectively.  #128 | Philip StubinPhilipStubin5'11" | PGWalter Johnson | 2021StateMD | Walter Johnson Stubin is a nice all-around guard prospect who can dribble, pass, shoot, and competes defensively. He's a good rebounding guard for his size and is dangerous in transition.  #131 | Michael CheadleMichaelCheadle5'7" | PGDunbar | 2021StateMD | Dunbar Cheadle is an exciting player to watch in part because he is so quick and keeps the ball on the string. He gets into the paint at will and is always looking for the open man.
