Prep School Breakdown - Boys Basketball

Here's a breakdown of which local basketball players are now at prep schools. It's no secret that many of the state's top prospects have been leaving the NHIAA for the NEPSAC, which is the most competitive prep school league in the country right here in their back yard.

Just this past off-season, four of the top players in the NHIAA last year transferred to prep school. Most notable of course is Geo Baker, the explosive 6-foot-2 point guard who led Pinkerton to the D-I title game as a sophomore last season. During the AAU season with the DC Blue Devils, Baker picked up offers from George Mason, Boston University, Long Island, Bryant and Brown. He then transferred to Proctor Academy, where he will play alongside AAU teammates Caleb Green and Tshiefu Ngalakulondi (all are NH products).

Also leaving the NHIAA for prep school are Issaiah Chappell, Monytung Maker and Jack Zimmerman. Chappell was the NHIAA's leading scorer last season. He and Maker will be teammates at Bradford Christian School. Chappell is leaving Sunapee High, Maker is leaving Manchester West, and Zimmerman is transferring from Bishop Guertin to Worcester Academy. All 3 players are reclassifying to 2017.
