One of the coolest things about the new Prep Hoops Rankings is that they automatically rank the players by positions as well. Within the rankings you can see the rankings for point guards, combo guards, shooting guards, small forwards, power forwards and centers. However, I have a different way of thinking of the game now, and believe the positions in basketball are now just guards, wings and bigs.

So we’ll be breaking down the top 25 of each in those positions. Here’s a look at the top 5 ranked wings in the updated class of 2021 rankings in the state of VA.

5) Wes Peterson Jr. | 6’5” | Bishop O’Connell (#16 Overall)

Paterson has quietly been one of the best wings in the WCAC over the past few years, and he has an impressive offer sheet of close to double digit schools from multiple conferences. He fits the prototype as he has a great frame and good strength, he’s athletic when attacking the rim and rebounding and he’s able to make shots from deep when he’s left open. At times he can be streaky as a scorer but he’s a smart kid who’s capable of making plays for others
