Among the six seniors and juniors from D.C. area schools, Suitland senior guard Roddy Peters ranked highest at No. 52. The Maryland recruit, who is sidelined for the season following shoulder surgery, is listed as the nation’s 12th best point guard.

Following Peters in the class of 2013 rankings were Gonzaga’s Kris Jenkins (Villanova) at No. 59, Montrose Christian’s Ishmail Wainright (Baylor) at No. 60, DeMatha’s BeeJay Anya (N.C. State) at No. 69 and a newcomer in Sidwell Friends’ swingman Josh Hart (Villanova) at No. 91.

Rounding out the list were a few former D.C. area players in Oak Hill Academy’s Nate Britt, who transferred from Gonzaga this past summer, at No. 93 and Findlay Prep’s Stanford Robinson, a former Paul VI standout, at No. 98.

In the class of 2014, Dion Wiley of Potomac (Md.) was ranked No. 22 overall and seventh-best among junior small forwards.

You can also see how things break down by state with the D.C., Maryland and Virginia senior class rankings.
