Ahmed's success comes as no surprise to us, as Buckeye Prep has watched him dominate the competition at AAU events and at our elite showcases for several years. From our advantage point, Ahmed has long since established himself as a top 5 player in the state in his class! Congrats to Esa and his family for this outstanding accomplishment!
