Here’s a broad overview of our updated class of 2022 rankings, taking a look at some of the trends we’ve seen so far. Stay tuned for some in-depth breakdown content covering this class update throughout the week.

CHANGES IN THE TOP-10

There are multiple changes worth noting in the updated top-10. First, Favour Aire Favour Aire 6'10" | C Bishop McNamara | 2022 State #76 Nation MD reclaims the top spot. Second, Tyrell Ward Tyrell Ward 6'7" | SF DeMatha | 2022 State #43 Nation MD has moved up 3 places and checks back in at #8. And last, but not least, Mady Traore Mady Traore 6'10" | PF National Christian | 2022 State MD makes his debut at #9. 

FIVE STOCK RISERS

#25 | Ty Williams Ty Williams 6'1" | PG Rock Creek Christian | 2022 State MD | 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 Roberson Jerrell Roberson 6'8" | C DeMatha | 2022 State MD | 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 Walsh Gavin Walsh 6'7" | PF Loyola Blakefield | 2022 State MD | 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 Hicks Miles Hicks 6'0" | PG St. Albans | 2022 State MD | 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 Briscoe Malachi Briscoe 6'6" | PF St. Mary's Ryken | 2022 State MD | 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

Jacory Wilkes Jacory Wilkes 6'6" | C Thomas Stone | 2022 State MD is a name to know in 2022

#17 | Shane Lancaster Shane Lancaster 6'4" | CG St. John's | 2022 State MD | St. John’s

Lancaster brings good size and versatility to any backcourt. He makes can score, defend, and make plays. 

#18 | Trey Thomas Trey Thomas 6'3" | PG Wise | 2022 MD | Wise

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 Tchilombo Cesar Tchilombo 6'8" | C John Carroll | 2022 MD | 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 Wilkes Jacory Wilkes 6'6" | C Thomas Stone | 2022 State MD | 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 Angwafo Adam Angwafo 6'7" | PF Bullis | 2022 State MD | 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.
