Following a second stellar season in a row, Windermere Prep boys basketball star Brandon Bass Jr. has been named to the 2026 ESPN 60, a list of the top high school basketball recruits in the country. 

Bass Jr., a 6-foot-4 wing, is listed as the No. 38 player on the list and a four-star prospect. 

Those who have watched Bass Jr. for the past few seasons won't be surprised at his ascent to this position. As a freshman, he not only led the Lakers in points with an average of 17.4 points a game but also was the driving force behind an offense that helped the team reach the state championship game. 

In his sophomore season, Bass Jr. improved his game tremendously and saw an increase in his offensive output, averaging 20.6 points a game and picking up five rebounds a game. Again, Bass Jr. helped lead the Lakers to a second straight title game appearance. 

He currently holds offers from Stanford, UCF, Houston, St. Johns and others.
