Mulready, Duggan among the Mass ‘23 risers

After updating our 2022 rankings last month, it is now time to circle back to the junior class. 

It was our hope that at this point we would have seen everyone, but unfortunately the recent covid pause has delayed that, and so this list will evolve as we continue to evaluate the progress of the region's top prospects. 

In the state of Massachusetts, the most notable riser has been Worcester Academy's Kayvaun Mulready, who got himself into the best shape of his career prior to the season and has seen his overall productivity go to the next level as well. A big guard, Mulready still has the size and strength to cause all kinds of mismatch problems, but is also ascending as a shooter, playmaker, and defender as well. 

Another notable riser is Phillips Andover's Colby Duggan, who now owns multiple division I offers. Duggan was a virtual unknown at this time last year but has since made a name for himself with his skill-set, and specifically his ability to shoot the basketball. He's not only a three-point threat but also capable of thriving in the mid-post and mid-range area with his high release. 

These updated rankings also include first-year prep products for the first time and so Cushing Academy big man Luke McEldon and Springfield Commonwealth forward Massai Graham are making their debut on the list. McEldon is a true center who comes to Cushing from Virginia and has early high-major suitors. Graham is well-known in New England after running with Rhode Island Elite last summer (and also breaking a backboard at the Elite 75 Frosh/Soph a few years ago), and has been a key weapon for the Tornados all year. 

SCA's Isaiah Miranda and the Worcester Academy duo of TJ Power and Tre Norman headline the list while Cushing's Adrian Uchidiuno retains his top five status as well.
