Correa Still #1 in Rhode Island

St. Raphael Academy guard Charles Correa has been in the news already this week, first making headlines by playing through injury to score 13 points while only using his left hand, and later by finally acknowledging that the injury would keep him out of action for a couple of weeks.  

Despite the setback, Correa is still the top prospect in the Ocean State.  The scoring guard has a wealth of weapons at his disposal and is capable of dropping 30+ points on any given night during the high school season.  

Correa’s steepest competition for top billing all comes from St. Andrew’s School, where we find the next best three prospects.  Agyei Gregory and Tim Reale, the Saints’ post-graduate backcourt tandem, check in at two and three on the list, while senior big man Nikola Vukosavovic sits in the fourth spot.  Gregory has a steady dose of scholarship level recruitment after earning a division I offer a year ago while Reale is a big point guard who knows how to run a team.  Vukosavovic has some scholarship caliber tools along the frontline along with a plethora of suitors from the division III level.  

Rounding out the top five is Classical guard Terrill Toe, who may not be widely known outside of the Ocean State, but has a well deserved reputation for being one of the most consistent scorers in the RIIL.  

6th ranked Marc Washington is another high scoring guard while Prout’s Justin Bristol offers some unique size and interior punch in what is otherwise a guard dominated state association.  

Westerly guard Austin Cilley is a long distance flame thrower who checks in at the 8th spot while St. Andrew’s puts another post-graduate guard on the list in Richard OBrien, who provides a skilled gym rat in the 9th spot.  

The top ten is rounded out by Toe’s running mate at Classical, Ishmael Batista, while LaSalle Academy guard Jared Thompson headlines the honorable mention list.
