AJ Harris Shines at Lucas Camp

Of the roughly 10 Ohio players who attended the John Lucas Midwest Invitational Camp in Louisville, Kentucky over the weekend, no one performed better that Dayton's Amos "AJ" Harris, a 5'9 8th grader. Teamed up with Baltimore's Justin Jenifer, the backcourt duo represented a powerful one-two punch. Harris handles the ball well, has good speed and quickness, can catch and shoot, as well as shoot off the bounce. In addition, Harris has a nice looking pull-up jumper as his money shot. My first look at Harris was at last year's Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase where he logged in an impressive performance on his way to Top 10 honors. His game has continued to develop as evidenced by his standout performance in Louisville. It's safe to say, Harris is one of the top 8th graders in the state. Harris was not the only Buckeye putting in work, Isiah Jones (2015), a 5'8 point guard from Cincinnati, also had some highlights, as did Stedman Lowry (2013), a 6'3 WG from Cincinnati and Tyler Herron (2014), a 6'8 C from Cleveland. Other attendees included Nate Fowler, Dylan Lowry, Joey DeNardo, Craig Randell, Ryan Gabbard, and Brian Parker. With the abundance of talent in this state, hopefully next year Ohio can send more representatives to this outstanding event.
