Deron Rippey Jr Is Making a Run to be Supreme in the Class of 2026

Deron Rippey Jr, a 6-foot-2 point guard Four Star prospect out of Blair Academy in New Jersey. He is having a phenomenal season at Blair in which he is averaging 

15.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. 

Rippey’s stock has risen in which he is highly being recruited by UConn, North Carolina, Syracuse, Rutgers, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas A&M, St. John’s, and among others. He plans to make visits to Syracuse on February 24th and Rutgers on February 29th. 

Rippey has led Blair Academy to a 20-4 record and to The Mid-Atlantic Prep League Championship this season. His leadership has played huge on the court this season. He continues to improve his game in all areas. In addition, he has a great handle and is a fantastic finisher. 

Rippey high school coach Joe Mantegna told Zagsblog – “He’s adjusting really well, and every week, he seems to be improving,” Mantegna said. “He’s growing up, maturing and playing with a lot of poise.” “He’s exactly the guard you want right now,” Mantegna continued. “He can score, he makes some of those dime cross-court passes. Those are passes that sophomores in college are learning to make. He’s a dog on defense and that’s what travels to the next level.” 

Rippey was named one of 18 finalists for the 2023 USA 16U national team training camp in Colorado Springs, Colorado. His performance attracted scouts with his ability to get to the paint quickly and breakdown defenders. In the Peach Jam he played for New Heights 15 and under. He had a breakout game of 30 points against Team Durant which helped caught viewers. 

Now, with the spring and summer coming, you will see Deron Rippey Jr continue to develop into a player. He will have the potential to make great performances in the Nike EYBL and top-notch camps. Can we Rippey standout going against the likes of Cameron and Cayden Boozer; Tyran Stokes, Darius Acuff, AJ Dybansta, Darryn Peterson, Koa Peat, and the rest of top players in the country.

I look for Rippey to improve his game and look forward to seeing his game continue to develop. Also, I look for him to develop in a lot of areas in his game for  which he will get better at.
