HIGH SCHOOL STANDOUTS - 17u
OSU COMMITT GEORGE WASHINGTON III IS BIG TIME
GEORGE WASHINGTON III (ALL-OHIO /DAYTON OH) The 6 foot 2 point guard is a player to say the least and had the full skillset on display this past weekend as host All-Ohio 17u ran the table edging out The program (Michigan) in the Platinum division finals by 3. Washington has a smooth game and can do it all, will have a big senior season.
DEVIN ROYAL (ALL-OHIO / PICKERINGTON OH) - Royal who is undecided but holds offers from several power 5 programs including Ohio State was his usual self, padding the stat sheet in every game that we caught .
One of the things that was most impressive of the 6 foot 7 wing was his ability to create off of the dribble and knock down the mid-range shot consistently, which will make him hard to handle with his size and quickness.
HARRISON RONNEBAUM (PUMAS / OLENTANGY OH) Is a bigtime shooter who can knock'em down from anywhere on the court, played tough definitely a player to watch. JABARI CONWAY (PUMAS / WORTHINGTON, OH) showed great athleticism and was a monster on the glass with a big time motor for a big fella. JADI CUNNINGHAM (PUMAS / WESTERVILLE OH) is a bigtime point guard who served up assist after assist as well as hitting a few big shots for the mid west puma's squad.
ARNESS LAWSON (ALL-OHIO / PICKERINGTON OH) - The 2025 6 foot guard from Pickerington was one of the more intriguing players we saw this weekend. his ability to separate from defenders and knock down open shots makes him a really scary prospect in that 2025 class.
Lawson who can play the 1 or 2 holds a few Division I offers already and will definitely add to that list and will be one of the top guards in the sate despite only being a sophomore.
JAY McCORD (DERRICK FAVORS / RIVER ROUGE GA.) was big time this weekend despite being one of the smallest players, knocking down big shots and was almost Un-guardable during stretches for the DF Celtics (Atlanta Ga) LAQUAVIUS BAILEY (DERRICK FAVORS / RIVER ROUGE GA.) played tough at 6 foot 5 playing in the middle was a problem for defenders in both games. KISON EDMONDSON (DERRICK FAVORS / PATASKALA, OH) who plays the 1 and 2 played well, penetrating and knocking down open shots. The DF Celtics 16u squad had 2 players that caught our eye in Farrell Suber (OSBOURNE, GA) and KJ Canty (ATLANTA, GA) who both are players to watch.
MIDDLE SCHOOL STANDOUTS
AIDEN MONROE (SPARTANS / CLEVELAND OH) The 6 foot 5 class of 2027 big fella is special, and has a great feel for the game scoring on all 3 levels with a huge upside. DEON JOHNSON (MONARCHS / COLUMBUS OH) Playing on an undersized Monarchs team Johnson (2027) has to do it all and did just that, was a problem off the dribble scoring at will. MAURICE HAMRICK JR (MONARCHS / COLUMBUS OH) One of the top players in the State (2028) playing up this AAU season showed his elite skillset, and ability to drain shots from everywhere.
