Yesterday we released our updated 2023 MD/DC player rankings and it’s time for articles that help break down players that were included. For my first article since the update, I’ll look at the prospects from the Baltimore Metro area that appear in the top 25.

Ranking: No. 2

Lamothe jumped from No. 5 to No. 2 since the last update. One reason being that Kwame Evans transferred to Montverde Academy, which removed our former No. 1 player from the list, but also because of the steady improvement that Lamothe has made over the last few months. His game is maturing at a fast rate and he’s learning not only how to be an impact scorer, but also a primary ball-handler and playmaker. Lamothe was a popular name among high major programs on the day of June 15 and of the 25+ programs that reached out to him, Maryland and Ohio State extended offers. Expect the recruitment battle to heat up as summer progresses for the 6-foot-4 combo guard.
