As the high school and prep seasons commence, there’s an opportunity for unsigned seniors characterized as ‘sleepers’ or ‘late bloomers’ to gain attention. Despite playing the waiting game with Derik Queen, the Maryland staff is actively engaging with potential prospects. According to IMS reports, they recently reached out to 2024 guard Malachi Palmer and assistant coach Greg Manning contacted 2024 Massanutten Military Academy wing Jayden Harris.

Harris, who has been flying under the radar, is now making waves after an impressive start to his prep season with Massanutten. Word is spreading rapidly among programs seeking new guard prospects for 2024. In a recent National Prep Showcase, Harris scored 30 points against the defending national champions, Putnam Science Academy. Standing at 6’7-6’8, he possesses a captivating skill set as a southpaw wing capable of playing both with and without the ball. Throughout the past year, Harris not only experienced a growth in height but also enhanced his athleticism, leading to eye-catching finishes at the rim.
