Pryor has Emerged as Elite

Rammer Pryor 61 WF 2022 Canton, OH
With a little over 2 years of competitive basketball experience under his belt, Raymar Pryor (6’1/WF/2022/Canton, OH) is still a bit of an unknown in the state of Ohio, let alone nationally.  However, over the course of the 2017 travel season, the super athletic Pryor has emerged as one of the top players in Ohio in the class of 2022.  Pryor only started playing basketball in the 6th grade on a rec team, and due to an ankle injury, he was forced to miss his entire 7th grade middle school basketball season. Playing with Ed Heben’s TNBA Shooting Stars the last 2 seasons, Pryor’s game has improved significantly. "He bought into what we were telling him and now he's a really good player," said Heban. 

In addition to his quickness and explosiveness, Pryor’s developing skill set has boosted his stock, and he’s now clearly a D-1 prospect.  Pryor does most of his damage on the wing slashing to the basket, but he has recently developed his ball skills and 3-point accuracy.  Consequently, Pryor is more versatile and can now slide over and play both guard positions.  In addition, Pryor was almost unstoppable in transition this past season. According to Ed Heben, Pryor’s AAU coach, Pryor has a chance to play the point at the next level with continued development.

We’ve seen Pryor play several times the past 2 seasons and each time we’ve seen him he’s gotten better. Moreover, his dominance at our recent Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase, followed by a MVP performance at the Nike City Series last week, finally convinced us that we needed to feature Pryor and alert our colleagues that Pryor deserves more national recognition.  To the college coachers who regularly follow this website, we suggest you start tracking Pryor early and get him on your recruiting boards.  He’s going to be a good one!
