FIVE STOCK RISERS
#25 | Ty WilliamsTyWilliams6'1" | PGRock Creek Christian | 2022StateMD | Rock Creek Christian | Previous Rank: 44
There is a lot to like about Williams’ game. He is a sneaky athlete with good size at the point. One reason why Williams will be successful is that he plays both ends of the floor.
#27 | Jerrell RobersonJerrellRoberson6'8" | CDeMatha | 2022StateMD | DeMatha | Previous Rank: 38
DeMatha’s man in the middle is a nice long-term prospect who is starting to realize his potential. Gaining additional experience this year will be valuable for his progression.
#33 | Gavin WalshGavinWalsh6'6" | PFLoyola Blakefield | 2022StateMD | Loyola Blakefield | Previous Rank: 52
Walsh has transformed his body and can guard 3 or 4 different positions now. This certainly improves his outlook going forward.
#62 | Miles HicksMilesHicks6'0" | PGSt. Albans | 2022StateMD | St. Albans | Previous Rank: 93
Hicks has grown and become more athletic since the high school season ended. This might probably surprise some folks who haven’t seen him for a while.
#68 | Malachi BriscoeMalachiBriscoe6'6" | PFSt. Mary's Ryken | 2022StateMD | St. Mary’s Ryken | Previous Rank: 80
Briscoe is an intriguing prospect who adds a vertical dimension to the court both offensively and defensively. His shot-blocking and finishing are hallmarks of his game.
DIVISION ONE SLEEPERS
#17 | Shane LancasterShaneLancaster6'4" | CGSt. John's | 2022StateMD | St. John’s
Lancaster brings good size and versatility to any backcourt. He makes can score, defend, and make plays.
Thomas is a pick-and-roll maestro who can score from all three levels. He also has the potential to be an outstanding on-ball defender.
#19 | Cesar TchilomboCesarTchilombo6'8" | CJohn Carroll | 2022State#114NationMD | John Carroll
Tchilombo’s unrelenting effort is a trait that coaches love to see in a big man. That effort level alone will help get him noticed, especially when you consider his size and physical profile.
#28 | Jacory WilkesJacoryWilkes6'6" | CThomas Stone | 2022StateMD | Thomas Stone
“Powerhouse” is the first word that comes to mind when watching Wilkes. He’s a tremendous screener and finisher who is also one of the most feared rim protectors in this region.
#32 | Adam AngwafoAdamAngwafo6'7" | PFBullis | 2022StateMD | Bullis
Angwafo possesses unique physical tools for his size. He’s still got a ways to go, but it’s clear that he has considerable upside.
