Now that the summer travel circuit has come to an end and the AAU Nationals are in the books, I thought it would be a good idea to put together my thoughts about which players logged in the most consistent standout performances over the course of the summer. To this end, below is a link to my "2012 Buckeye Prep All-State Teams" in the 2016 division. For the most part, the 3 teams plus honorable mentions, are made up of players who made significant impacts for their teams this summer. In addition to their play at local events, performances at the AAU Nationals was also factored in.
Also, the All-State teams do not necessarily represent how I would rank the players, but rather the teams are more about a players production this summer based on what I saw and/or heard. I know there is always debate when lists like these are published, but it's my belief that debate is good as long as it remains healthy and can be used as motivation for those players listed or not listed. As always, I invite you to use the comment section below to express your thoughts about the teams. With that said, keep it positive! On a final note, many of the players listed will be participating in my September 22nd and 23rd elite showcase and will be representing their communities in the inaugural Ohio North vs South games. Let the debates begin!
