  1. i also think stivers tigers 7th grade players are good like PG Tyrell Waters and De'Aaron Hodges and SG Jeremy and Noah Howell Plus Michael Taylor from Rosa Parks who all are real good friends with Corde Donald and can play great and the other people on the list are great as well.

  5. Reggie Jones should be in the top 25 too

  6. 6 people shouldnt be in the Top Southern Ohio List but the rets of the people are good.

  7. What six players are you referring to?

  8. Franky Geib and Liam Coyne should be on there.

  9. The best way for players to get recognized is to attend elite showcases and top tournaments.

  10. Where is the showcase tournament a list of team that play in that tournament.

  11. The elite showcase is for individual players, not teams. Information about the March 6th event is located on the top right of the web page. For an invitation email me at

  12. Xavier's name is's Xavier Holston-sims also he's 5'2

  13. Also, I'm trying to find the dates and location for the Columbus Middle School all-star game. If you can help me with that information I would like to cover the event. you can post the information here or email me at

  14. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  15. Then I trust you will not be returning to this site in the future. A lot of people enjoy the coverage Buckeye Prep provides these young kids. If you don't like what you see here, find another website to visit!!

  16. Kyle Stergis should be in the top 25.

  17. Kyle Stergis lives in Northeast ohio and he attnded the jr all american camp and recieved an invitation to the camp in atlanta and he is attending the elite showcase on march 6th in columbus ohio

  27. Hope to see him at my Sept 12th elite showcase! For an invitation, email Rob Taylor at

  28. i dont get why corde is on there. ive seen him play before and he cant shoot all he has is quickness and length. if he wants to play with the big boys then he better work on his shot

  29. Hi Rob. What do you do with a kid with "potential", who is consistently described as "athletic", consistently shoots the 3 and who also consistently "gets in his own way" instead of just playing? In other words, does confidence/not panicking/playing under control come with maturity?? HELP!

  30. For potential to be released, it must be accompanied by hard work. Skills and drills are a must. Too many kids are allowed to lean on their athleticism, and don't always develop the skill that is required to play at a high level. Kids do mature at different rates, but it does often help their game. If you work on the skill level at an early age, the rest tends to come with age for most kids. Stay in their ear and ask others to talk to them as well, as they don’t always want to listen to their parents.RT

  31. Worthington Christian Middle School 8th grade team had a few standout players that one should take notice of. Remember these names for future reference: Ben Baacke (6'0) Josh Kremelintzer (5'8") Brian Lambright II (6'1" 235 lbs.)

  32. CJ Saunders doesn't deserve to be in the top 10 ranks for basketball. He is no good and is only the leader of the jock clan.

  33. how do you get invited to the showcases?

  34. Top PLAYER Simon Texidor Mo Johnson J Bloxson J Roserts Anthony D Locket J Williams C Oakley B Paker A D Dowell E Ahmed K Nichols K Stergis J Harris D J IN OHIO 2015


  36. It is spelled LaMonta, and he is so quick it's amazing. played on his team, he carried us to win the ship. i prefer Monta over Gardner.

  37. Dominic Scranton, Tommy Mcelroy, Corey Mills, Nikki Bapst, Case Chamblin, Desmond Johnson and Tyreke Calvin should be on there for central ohio.

  38. Devin Smith 5'9 PG from Garfield Heights Ohio should be in the top 25 he is well talented .

    1. Your right he is well talented but people just sleep on him he needs to play for a big AAU team and get ranked in the COUNTRY.

  39. terricko early from richmond heights should have been on here
