All Ohio Super Sixteen: Top SF’s
I continue my coverage from the All Ohio Super Sixteen by looking at the top performing SF’s from the event. This list is a good balance of upperclassmen as well as some previously unknown underclassmen. See who caught my eye…
I continue my coverage from the All Ohio Super Sixteen by looking at the top performing SF’s from the event. This list is a good balance of upperclassmen as well as some previously unknown underclassmen. See who caught my eye below.
(2024) All Ohio Red( Moeller)
McBride brought some serious bounce and athleticism for AOR in their tournament run. His jumps seemingly were him hovering in midair especially on the receiving end of alley-oops. McBride concerned me with his handle and jump shot, but both can be worked on. Serious LM caliber player already with an offer from NKU.
Jeremy Wilson (2024) SMAC Akron (Solon)
Wilson has tremendous length, especially with his longer arms. Much like a safety on the football field, Wilson is a ballhawk that follows and is a constant threat to go up and reject shots at the rim. At around 6-foot-6, he utilizes that size and impressed me with his overall IQ on the defensive end. I need to see a little more on his offensive game to know where to determine his level. Nonetheless, early indications are Wilson could be a scholarship athlete.
(2024) Ohio Buckets Garcia (Ottawa-Glandorf)
White is one of the most fundamentally sound prospects I’ve watched this season. At 6-foot-5, he has real athleticism to go along with his skillset which can be best described as unreal. Between his overall offensive game and feel, White can be a difference maker and has shown capability of taking over a game with his offensive scoring potential. White has already attracted attention from multiple D1s.
(2023) Ohio Buckets Miller (Mohawk)
Hess brings true inside-out potential for the Buckets when he steps on the floor. At 6-foot-5, Hess has the footwork and physicality to initiate and finish through contact on the block. Hess created opportunities for himself with these skillsets and was incredibly efficient around the rim, but also on the perimeter. Hess looks to be a solid D3 level prospect and could be a target for programs looking for a hard-nosed SF.
Mid Ohio Pumas -Gold (Reynoldsburg)(2025)
This past weekend served as my first opportunity to see Nwokolo in person for the Pumas. The 6-foot-5 wing has the build coaches are looking for in a prospect and a solid skillset that are impressive as well. I felt Nwokolo had great patience in making his moves and his decision making as a whole was impressive. I need to see some more to place a level on him, but early on Nwokolo looks like a scholarship player.
(2023) Hidden Gems (Harvest Prep)
Shaheed brings vertical play to the table when he’s on the floor. In a game against Dayton Elite-Grey, Shaheed showed he could contest shots at the rim defensively and has the potential to be an elite level shot blocker with some more development. Showed some promise on the offensive end, but particularly was impressive on that defensive side of the ball.
Brayden Gross (2025) Gurus to Go (Louisville)
Gross was a tough kid to defend for the Gurus in their loss to AOR. Gross’ motor on the glass was impressive for a 15U player and particularly considering he was doing this against D1 level players. Gross has a longer frame currently and could add some more size as he continues to grow. Gross should be a name worth following as he could be a special player out of Louisville in the coming years.
