Top of the Class in Mass
As the reigning backcourt for BABC’s national championship team a year ago, Brantley and Castro have one heck of a resume when they are side by side.
When separated, both members of the tandem have managed to distinguish themselves during the prep school season as well. Brantley has drawn headlines for his late game heroics this season for Wilbraham and Monson while Castro has been on a tearing of late, putting up huge numbers in the scoring column for Worcester Academy.
The duo owns the top two spots in the recently updated Massachusetts class of 2013 rankings, while the third spot goes to Andrew Chrabascz, who leads the way for another AA powerhouse in Cushing Academy.
Distance has only made the heart grow fonder for Ikemefuna Ngwudo who remains one of the state’s top frontcourt prospects despite missing time this season with injury.
The top ten is really only the beginning of the state’s talent as prospects like Kamali Bey, Jake Fay, Adrian Oliveira, Maurice Taylor, Timmance McKinney, Skyler White, Nate Anderson, Jalen Myrie, Tom Bajda, Colin Richey, Sam Donahue, Thomas Rivard, Kamari Robinson, and others help to form a tremendously deep junior class in Massachusetts.
