Ohio Freshmen Excel at National Camp

LaMonta Stone II 2015

LaMonta Stone II, one of Ohio's top freshman floor generals, recently competed in Joe Kellers' Phenom 150 Camp at Alliance University in San Diego, California, and drew accolades. According to Rivals High school website, not only did Stone make the all-star team, he was the 3rd leading scorer (15 points) for the East squad that went on to win 107-93.  In addition, Stone was ranked 9th overall and as the # 1 point guard in the class by the Hoop Scoop. Ranked as one Buckeye Prep's Top 30 rising freshmen (2015), it comes as no surprise that Stone was able to excel at the national level.  According to his father, the camp "forced  LeMonta out of his comfort zone and gave him the opportunity to compete at the national level."

In addition to Stone, Hoop Scoop's Clark Francis ranked Columbus' Xavier Holston-Sims 7th amongst shooting guards, and he was selected as one of several "Top Defenders" at the camp, while Canal Winchester's Seth McCoy was ranked 41st overall, the11th best power forward in his division, and was selected for one of a handful of "Sportsmanship Awards." It should be noted that Dayton's Caleb Harris also participated in the freshman division at the 3-day camp and out of 200 players, he was ranked as the 18th best PG.  Not to be undone, older brother, Wesley Harris, was ranked #23 over all out of 160 10th & 11th graders, in addition to being ranked as the 4th best PG. Also, Canal Winchester's Alex McCoy both participated in the sophomore division. Congratulations to Stone and the other Ohio kids for representing the Buckeye State well!!

  1. Thanks Rob for acknowledging the Harris men. Wesley Harris ranked #23 overall and #4 point guard for the Sophomore division. Caleb Harris (his brother) was also handling business as the #18 point guard. As a father I am extremely proud that my sons were able to compete on this national level. Kudos to Coach Char Harris (their mother and coach from the 3rd and 4th grade).
