|Delmarr Blanton 6'0" CG 2024 Dayton|
We’ve been following his career since he was in the 4th grade, and from what we’ve seen and heard recently; Delmarr Blanton’s (6’0”/CG/Dayton/2024) talent has carried over to the middle school level. As the starting shooting guard at Trotwood Middle School, Blanton is proving to be a problem for opposing players. In fact, so far this season, Blanton's scoring average is 22 points including 26 point game high. According to Coach Render, an assistant coach with the team, Blanton "...is the best player and makes everybody better."
Blessed with a strong frame, athleticism and an aggressive approach to the game, Blanton is at his best when he is powering his way to the cup. He’s not just about driving and finishing, as Blanton is more than capable of knocking down treys if left open. Check out the video below from our guy Terry Holt (T3TV) and you too will come to appreciate Blanton’s talent.
Blanton has always been one of the best players in Ohio in his class as evidenced by his multiple MVP nods at our elite showcases and tournaments; but his dominance at the middle school level confirms what we’ve always seen in him; this kid has game. In 2020, Blanton run with a Bates Fundamental team which will be based out of Cincinnati. You can catch Blanton and Bates Fundamental in action at the Buckeye Prep Invitational Tournament scheduled for March 27th-29th.
