Jamir Moultrie | Bishop McNamara (Md.) | 6-0 | 2017
Jamir is a strong lead guard that can not only put pressure on the defense with his driving ability but is also a knock down shooter that can score off the bounce and catch. Jamir will be a high level guard in the class of 2017.

Ako Adams | Bishop O’Connell (Va.) | 6-2 | 2016
Ako is a combo scoring guard. He can get to the rim and also knock down outside shots. Ako showed a great ability to handle the basketball on Sunday and make plays for other guys!!

Craig LeCesne | St. James (Md.) | 6-7 | 2016
Craig is a multi dimensional wing forward that can play in and out. Look for this name to gather more attention every time he steps on the floor this spring. He is a capable shooter that has a motor and great size. He can be effect both on the perimeter and low block.

A.j. Wilson | DuVal (Md.) | 6-7 | 2016
Wilson was one of the more impressive players to showcase their ability at Baltimore Top 100. He displayed a great combination of leaping and shooting ability and showed little weaknesses in his overall game. Wilson gave it his all on both ends of the court, as he scored at will and contested any shots that were taken in his vicinity.

Marcel Thompson | Poly HS (Md.) | 6-3 | 2015
Thompson was a standout at the Baltimore Top 100. He did just about everything on the court as he scored both from both short and deep while owning the glass for his team as well. He used his athleticism to sky for rebound after rebound and showed great basketball IQ throughout.

Daniel Wilson | St. Paul (Md.) | 6-6 | 2015
Wilson was a force to be reckoned with on the glass Baltimore Top 100. He used his strong frame to out muscle defenders and track down a number of rebounds. He was no slouch scoring in the paint either. He did a tremendous job holding his own scoring in the low-post when fed the ball.

Nyrique Smith | Frederick Douglass (Md.) | 6-3 | 2016
Smith was a very efficient player on the day. He scored within himself as he took a lot of high percentage shots within the flow of his team’s offense. The opposition had their hands full trying to slow down Smith’s ability to evade defenders and finish in transition.

Frevado Morse | WJA (D.C.) | 5-7 | 2018
Morse is going to be a great addition for any high school that he plans to attend. The eighth grader had the ball on a string at the DMV Jr. Elite as he was able to break down defenders at will. Morse played unselfishly throughout as he scored when needed, but put more of an emphasis on creating easy shots for his teammates.

Jared Bynum | Washington Jesuit (D.C.) | 5-6 | 2018
Bynum, similar to Morse, put on a great display of crossover moves. But the difference in their games was that Bynum looked to score more often. He was very aggressive going to the basket and showed nice range on his jumpshot as he was able to knock down a few from deep.

Kenneth Tyree Jr. | Hardy MS (D.C.) | 5-3 | 2018
Tyree was a tremendous floor general that used his quickness to set up his teammates. His maturity and poise kept his team’s chemistry intact throughout. He also displayed a solid midrange jumper as well.

Brayden Gault | Ronald Regan (Va.) | 6-2 | 2018
Gault was an all-around workhorse that used his size and grit to out hustle the competition. Gault showed great versatility as he was able to make shots from both the perimeter as well as blow by his man for layups and floaters in the lane.

D’Marco Baucum | D.C.A. (D.C.) | 6-5 | 2018
Baukum was a beast that battled and rebounded in the paint all day at the DMV Jr. Elite.  He didn’t have the best offensive day but he used his size and strength to score when he needed to.
