As is the case at every showcase or tournament when individual honors are handed out, the 2010 Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase had some "Just missed" kind of players who fell just short of making one of the all-star games. In some cases, these players may have made an all-star team under a different set of circumstances (i.e., on a stacked team, was part of a tie, came on late in the showcase, etc.). Although they did not make the cut this time around, many of the players listed below will be talked about and written about over the next couple of years. In any respect, this list of players deserve a little bit of recognition, as they were ranked in the top 5 of their respective teams and very easily could have been an all-star. I'm calling this list my "Showcase Honorable Mention."
6th Grade: Dale "DJ" Tyree, Chandler Rankin, Andrew Jamison, Rashaad Ali Shakir, Joe Levitt and Seth Towns. 7th Grade: Tyler McCafferty, Kevin "Sticks" Fischer, Jamelle Curtis, Ronald Robinson, Xavier Holston-Sims and Ryan Grooms. 8th Grade: Jae'sean Tate, Bruce Hodges, Darius West, Jaylen Jones, Brandon Manley, Ryan Frey, Adam Gigax, Daniel Cage, Bryce Bailey Darion Burns, Chris Little, Larry Moore and Aaron Harris. 9th Grade: Breon Robinson, Jeavon Bess (8th) and Drexler McColly. Keep an eye on these kids. They may have just missed the cut, but they can still ball!! Check out the mix tape video shot at the showcase.
