Woodstock Academy and Expressions big man Tre Mitchell was close behind at 83rd while the MacDuffie and PSA Cardinals duo of James Bouknight and Ismael Massoud cracked the list at 91 and 100 respectively.
Nate Tabor, who recently returned to Sacred Heart High School in Connecticut and stars with the New York Rens, represented new England in the ESPN 60 as the 56th ranked prospect in the national class of 2020.
Rivers School and Expressions rising sophomore Terrence Clarke made his national rankings debut as the second overall prospect in the ESPN 25 of 2021.
