|Jerry Easter Jr., John Mobley Jr., Javen Vaughn & Nino Nesbitt|
It’s still very early, and we have only seen a fraction of the top 2024 players in the state, but we feel comfortable releasing our initial 2024 Watch List. It’s only 26 players deep, but we believe we have discovered a solid list of elite players. Near the top of our list are guys like Jerry Easter Jr. (PG/Toledo) and John Mobley Jr. (PG/Columbus), both of whom have established well-deserved national reputations. In addition, both Easter and Mobley have elite talent and skill sets well beyond their years. Highly skilled, competitive and high basketball IQs are just a few of their attributes.
Dayton’s Delmar Blanton and Javen “Tank” Vaughn have attended several of our events and have consistently logged in all-star caliber performances. Both players are tough as nails and both play with a lot of energy on both ends of the floor. We’ve also seen some good things out of Nino Nesbitt (PG/Columbus) and LeVelle Sharpe (CG/Akron), both of whom have also excelled at our elite showcases. Of course this list will continue to grow as we have an opportunity to see evaluate these young players during the travel basketball season.
