Hawkins. iscurrently listed at 6-foot-5 and 170 lbs. heading into his senior year. He ranks 49th in the nation overall in the 2021 class, and is second currently in the state of Maryland. The only player ranked higher than him is Syracuse Orange commit and four-star wing Benny Williams of St. Andrews Episcopal School in Potomac. Hawkins also finds himself just outside the Top 10 at 11th amongst shooting guards in 2021.
UConn’s class is rock-solid right now to say the very least. With two four-stars in tow, Dan Hurley’s class jumps up to 13th in the nation with Hawkins under the belt. They of course sit second in the Big East though behind the much ballyhooed class that the Villanova Wildcats have put together to this point.
