Jeremiah Keene Still Under the Radar

Jeremiah Keene
By now, many of Ohio's elite 8th graders have been featured on this and other websites on numerous occasions.  However, because it is still very early for players in the class of 2019, there are still a number of very talented guys who are still flying under the radar and who have not yet been discovered. Columbus, Ohio has always produced great basketball talent, and Jeremiah Keene (5'11 PG Columbus) should be considered among the best in Central Ohio right now. A crafty lead guard with a tight handle and a nice mid-range and 3-point shot, Keene had not emerged on the national stage until his standout performance at the recent Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase last month.

Although he ran with the Ohio Hoopsters and competed among the country's elite in the National Youth Basketball League (NYBL) this past season, it was not until his all-star selection and Top 5 Award winning performance in September that the basketball community finally started to recognise his true talent.  Keene serves as the engine and the primary distributor for the Hoopsters, and not only can he shoot the rock, he gets ample paint touches on his drives, and is an able and willing passer. He may not be a household name just yet, but with continued growth and development, Keene has a chance to be playing college basketball in a few years.  Jeremiah Keene, welcome to the big stage!
