Over the next few weeks, our staff will periodically dive into each of our recently updated rankings and spotlight key players in each class. Today, we take a look at an uber-athletic, projectable RHH outfielder that committed to the University of Maryland this Summer. 

A standout at our 2022 Maryland State Games in June, Hankerson possesses an athletic 5-10, 180 pound frame with proportional strength throughout. The approach is simple, utilizing a smooth, quiet back load with explosion through contact. Creates excellent extension with some loft created to the pull side, showcasing the ability to backspin line drives to the gaps and alleys. An impact player in all facets, Hankerson registered a 95 mph exit velocity, 80 mph outfield velocity and turned in a 6.95 60-yard time at this year's Maryland State Games, leading to his recruitment to the University of Maryland.
