Last year, 88 Baltimore-area natives suited up for Division I men’s college basketball programs. This season, that number has fallen to 73, but there are still plenty of interesting players and storylines to track.
Seventeen players from this region – defined here as natives of Anne Arundel County, Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Carroll County, Harford County and Howard County, and/or graduates of high schools in those areas – will play for in-state schools. Mount St. Mary’s leads the way with five locals, while UMBC has four and Towson has three. Coppin State (two), Loyola (two) and Morgan State (one) are the others.
A trio of Baltimore Catholic League rivals have produced the most Division I players in the area. St. Frances is first with nine, while John Carroll and Mount Saint Joseph are tied for second with seven apiece. Calvert Hall isn’t far behind with four alums on DI rosters. Milford Mill and Poly are the most represented public schools with four players each.
See the chart below for a sortable list of every player.
