An abundance of team camp play has been seen across the state in May and June. With the rankings being dropped this month as well, team camps allowed for newcomers to be seen and added to the rankings. In this latest Prep Hoops Louisiana article, we will take a look at some of the newcomers in the 2022 rankings. These preps may be new but they will be big players in the high school season to come in 2021-22.

Class of 2022 Newcomers

Jaquevius Thompson Jaquevius Thompson 6'3" | CG Caldwell Parish | 2022 State LA (6’3" / CG / Caldwell Parish / OVR #33)

What let me know that Thompson had made a statement with his play during team camps was when top defenders started to guard him.  Once players like Joseph Manning Joseph Manning 6'3" | CG Bossier | 2022 State LA and LaBrandon Butler LaBrandon Butler 6'0" | PG Rayville | 2022 State LA  begin to check you, the other team has officially marked you as "the guy."  Thompson can handle, get to the rim, and shoot from distance.  While he is new to the rankings, he will be a name to know all next season.  

Albert Shell Albert Shell 6'3" | SG Wossman | 2022 State LA (6’3" / SG / Wossman / OVR #59)

Shell has been given a lot of responsibility by the Wildcat coaching
