Rockville Rampage: "Ram to Watch: Jimmy Sorunke"

Jonathan Brake, Staff Writer
December 14, 2017

“Jimmy is one of the hardest working players I have seen. He works every day to improve,” varsity basketball coach Todd Dembroski said.

Sorunke is inspired by his favorite NBA player, Ben Simmons, guard and forward for the Philadelphia 76ers who has the same build as Sorunke, who is learning to use the same overwhelming size and reckless abandon on the court.

Prep Hoops: Freshman to Watch: Jimmy Sorunke (2021)
By Colby Giacubeno

Luckily for Sorunke, his overwhelming size alone will cause issues for any team on Rockville’s schedule. Often times we see players with Sorunke’s overall size struggle to consistently run the floor. That’s the last thing you need to worry about with him, though.

“Right now I’d say running the break is the strongest part of my game,” Sorunke told PrepHoops. “Rebounding and being physical too.”

I saw Sorunke play yesterday at the DMVElite 80. Immediately, his size catches your eye. Once the ball is tipped, he goes 110 percent the entire time he’s in. He plays with a reckless abandon that puts everyone on notice. It’s almost like he doesn’t know how to give up on a play. One possession, his teammate turned the ball over at half court. Sorunke put his head down and sprinted from their own three-point line to catch the guard who stole the ball, pinning their lay up against the glass.

When I asked him who he watches the most film of, Sorunke told me Ben Simmons is his favorite player. He wants to eventually become as versatile and skilled as he is with the basketball. He has the size, now it comes down to coaching and development.

Sorunke should be a name on your list of 2021 prospects.
