Ohio's Top 25 7th Graders (2015)

Below is a list of some of the top 7th graders in the state. This is a very early list and there is no doubt in my mind that there are a number of players who are not, but should be, on this list. As I get a chance to see and evaluate the players listed, as well as other kids, I will be making updates to the list, in order to better define the rankings and determine who the truly best kids are. The next updates will occur during the middle school season and more significant changes will be made after the March 6th elite showcase. At this age, I would not be too disappointed if your name does not appear on this type of list, as this list or any other in no way guarantees future success or failure. If your name appears on the list I would suggest that you continue to work hard on your game and your grades, as some kids are working hard to garner their own recognition. The best advice I can give players and parents at this stage is to continue to find opportunities for your child to develop and gain exposure. This list was provided to the Hoop Scoop to assist them in developing their national top player list. The Hoop Scoop list should be released by the weekend.
