New names & recent risers headline updated NH ‘23 rankings

After updating our 2022 rankings earlier this 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 New Hampshire, Brewster Academy's class continues to dominate the top of the list as Matas Buzelis, Taylor Bowen, and Reid Ducharme are all at the top along with Aaron Clark, who headlines the first year prep products who are now making their debut in the New England rankings. Clark is a skilled and cerebral lefty guard who not only shoots the ball well from behind the arc but also has a high basketball I.Q. 

The other notable new name is that of Kimball Union Academy forward Daniel Muila-Mwaka, who first introduced himself to the region in June at the NEPSAC Showcase and has since lived up to the hype he generated on that weekend. A powerful player and yet versatile mismatch problem, Muila-Mwaka can be physical inside the paint as well as he can take less mobile defenders off the dribble. 

Two of the state's most notable risers come from within the state association ranks as Pinkerton Academy's Anthony Chinn appears to be a prospect on the verge of making a name for himself as he's been putting up huge numbers and scoring in a variety of ways. Goffstown's Mason Blondeau is similarly trending in the right direction with his versatility a nd combination of mismatch tools.
