Wondering who some local 2022 players to watch this summer are? You've come to the right place. Here is a rundown of 10 names who should be on your watch list. 

Jacob Aryee | 6’3" SG | Mid Atlantic Select/St. Mary’s-Annapolis (MD)

Aryee certainly passes the initial eye test. The burly guard prospect isn't currently ranked but will be in our next update. Aryee is a difference-maker on both ends of the floor. He scores from multiple levels and helps clean the glass.

Logan Blair Logan Blair 6'3" | SF St. John's | 2022 State MD | 6’4" SF | Mid Atlantic Select/St. John’s (DC)

Blair quietly put together a solid string of games at DC Live. He plays with a consistently high motor to go along with ideal toughness.

Xavier Brown Xavier Brown 6'1" | PG Oak Hill Academy | 2022 State VA | 6'1" PG | Big Shots Elite VA/Oak Hill (VA)

Brown is one of the more underrecruited guards in the area. Don't be surprised if he breaks out in the near future. 

Kashawn Cordes Kashawn Cordes 6'4" | SF Hermitage | 2022 State VA | 6’4" SG | Team Richmond/Hermitage (VA)

Cordes has tools that can't be taught. He is confident enough on the ball to handle but has the size to slide over to the two and operate off the ball.

He is confident enough on the ball to handle but has the size to slide over to the two and operate off the ball.  Nicholas Evans Nicholas Evans 6'8" | C Gonzaga | 2022 State MD | 6’9" C | District BC/Gonzaga (DC) Evans is evidently gaining confidence as his experience grows. He's becoming a safe bet to pull down close to 10 rebounds each time he hits the court.  Paul Lewis Paul Lewis 6'1" | PG Bishop O'Connell | 2022 State VA | 6’2" PG | DC Premier/Bishop O’Connell (VA) Lewis recently reopened his recruitment. The dynamic lead guard prospect should attract many suitors this summer. Jeremiah Littlejohn Jeremiah Littlejohn 6'4" | SF Rock Creek Christian | 2022 State MD | 6’4" SG | Rock Creek Christian (MD) Looking for an athletic wing who can score? Littlejohn is your guy.  Jordan Nkoa-Abessolo Jordan Nkoa-Abessolo 6'5" | PF St. Maria Goretti | 2022 State MD | 6’5" PF | New World 3SSB/St. Maria Goretti (MD) Nkoa-Abessolo's main selling point is his unrelenting engine. That along with his college-ready frame make him an appealing prospect for scholarship-level programs to target.  Jordan Pennick Jordan Pennick 6'1" | CG Archbishop Spalding | 2022 State MD | 5’11" PG | Team Choo/Archbishop Spalding (MD) Pennick has quickly established a reputation as one of the area's most fierce competitors. He gives no ground defensively but can also hurt you with his scoring if you aren't prepared. Bryce Sewell Bryce Sewell 5'9" | PG Georgetown Prep | 2022 State MD | 5’10" PG | CTAB Elite/Georgetown Prep (MD) Sewell has emerged as a reliable lead guard for the Little Hoyas. He sets the tone defensively and makes very few mistakes on offense.
