Rhode Island’s 2021 Class Has Depth at the Top
Our updated rankings in the class of 2021 take us to the state of Rhode Island today where several players could make a claim at the top spot.
St. Andrew's Matt Constant, Pilgrim's Tyriek Weeks, Bishop Hendricken's Sebastian Thomas, St. George's Dominic Mello, and even LaSalle's Jake Bender all have a chance to take over that spot over the course of the next 15 months.
Constant has been the most consistently productive against the highest levels of competition. He emerged as a key player in St. Andrew's NEPSAC championship last March and has been playing a key role for the Saints all year this season.
Weeks may have the highest upside of the group and if his bloodlines are any indication, this guy is only going to keep coming in the next few years. He checks in at number two overall right now but is widely expected to only keep ascending.
No one has been putting up bigger numbers this season than Sebastian Thomas has for Hendricken as he's been dropping 20, and even 30, with regularity while in the midst of his breakout junior campaign.
Dominic Mello is proven scorer with evident individual talent who is also impacting winning at a very high level as he's playing a key role for a St. George's team that is having their best season in program history.
Jake Bender may not have the same reputation yet as others on this list but he's a name to know moving forward as his perimeter size, athleticism, and overall tools are bound to make him an emerging name in the next 15 months.
St. Andrew's Dylan Ahearn and Rocky Hill's Parker Mason are two other notable prospects to know in Rhode Island 2021 class while the top ten is currently rounded out by Westerly's Jawarie Hamelin, Ponaganset's Sean Cullen, and Pilgrim's Peter Kay.
