The high school basketball season is right around the corner with tryouts starting in less than a month. Transfers happen every year and should make a big difference on the floor this season, especially the ones who are unranked. Here are the unranked transfers who should make a big impact in 2022-23.
, 6’6 CG Camden 2024
Richmond III joins a talented Panthers’ roster who are looking to repeat as Group 2 champions. The 6’6 guard explodes off the floor for dunks and is unafraid of drawing contact around the basket. Richmond III knows how to get to his spot on the floor and rises up nicely for jumpers in the half court. He has the length to defend multiple positions on the floor and makes plays with the ball in his hands. Richmond III is a talented guard prospect who should fit in nicely with Camden’s loaded roster.
, 6’1 CG Trenton Catholic 2023
Amos-Whitfield will be one to watch in Non-Public B as the Iron Mikes look to retain their sectional title. The 6’1 guard has a nice handle, which he uses to get into the paint and finish around the basket. Amos-Whitfield is more than just a slasher as he has a nice release on his jumper and sets his feet before he shoots. He moves well without the ball in his hands and willing to take charges on the defensive end. Amos-Whitfield is a tough guard prospect who should have a strong senior season for Trenton Catholic.
, 6’10 C Montclair Immaculate 2025
Arrington will be manning the post down low for the Lions and has the potential to have a breakout 2022-23 campaign. The 6’10 post has a nice touch around the basket and knows how to get position in the paint. Arrington has a nice touch on his free throws and is developing more confidence on his jumper. He is tough to box out on both ends of the floor and is a solid interior defender. Arrington’s ability to control the paint will be something that will help his stock in a big way this season.
Mario Castro, 6’1 PG Gill St. Bernard’s 2023
The Knights retooled their roster this offseason and will be looking to make noise in the Garden State with Castro in the backcourt. The Spanish native has a lightning quick release on his shot and can get hot from distance in a hurry. Castro is more than just a shooter as he can also get into the paint and finish around the basket. He has a nice touch on his floater and is an underrated passer. Castro is a sharpshooting guard prospect who should have a big season for Gill St. Bernard’s.
, 6’2 CG Ranney 2023
Bethea joins the Panthers backcourt, where he should make an immediate impact on the floor. The 6’2 lefty attacks the basket with a purpose as he finishes with authority above the rim and is unafraid of drawing contact. Bethea can also score in the mid-range and moves well without the ball in his hands. He is a solid rebounder and moves his feet on the defensive end. Bethea’s ability to make plays at both ends of the floor is something that will his stock in a big way this season.
