The New Prep Hoops Player Rankings are out. It’s been a difficult season, one that included the cancelation of the high school season, tons of players coming and going, and an overall lack of playing opportunities. Despite that and thanks to yeomen efforts from coaches, I’ve been fortunate to see a ton of players and learn some new names. In this article, a follow-up to Fresh Faces part 1 we take a look at some of the fresh faces in the updated class of 2024 rankings.
6’2 SG Bishop Gorman #33 – I saw Rice play up in Utah a few months ago, and liked what he did. The son of the legendary Bishop Gorman coach, it goes without saying he has a high IQ. A shooter with good size for his position, he is able to raise up and shoot over defenders.
6’1 SG SLAM #34 – Cade is definitely a sleeper. The freshmen 2 guard has a solid frame and little shiftiness to his game. Cade can get to the rim off dribble drives and his quick second jump ability allows him to compete for rebounds against taller opponents.
6’2 SG Faith Lutheran #37 – Lawson is a good-looking young player for the Crusaders. He’s a slasher, still working on finishing. He already has good size and a solid frame, as his skill continues to develop he has a chance to develop into a prototypical High School wing.
6’5 C SLAM #38 (featured image) – Tomlin is a project but is definitely worth the work. He moves well for a player his size, showing the ability to consistently rim run. Right now his best strengths are his low post defense and rebounding, but as his offense improves keep an eye out for him as a player to rise.
5’9 CG Spring Valley #43 – The combo guard makes the list after coming up to Utah to play in a recent event. A facilitator who protects the ball and defends both backcourt positions.
