Rob Taylor brought in over 300 players in grades 6-11 yesterday for some great action in Columbus. Triple Double Prospects spent most of the day watching the 2013/2014 division, with some time at the 2015 division. Here are the top prospects that we saw yesterday……. Event Photos
Aaron Jackson- Gahanna Lincoln SF: Smooth wing was as aggressive as he’s ever been attacking the basket and that paid off today as he scored at will around the rim.
Marc Loving- Toledo St. Johns SF: Always a dominant force, showed improvements in his rebounding and shotblocking as well as getting his normal points in many ways.
Jack Gibbs- Westerville North PG: Dominated the game without scoring by breaking his man down and setting up teammates. As usual he hit his threes when open with consistency.
Wendell Davis- Reynoldsburg SF: Showed improving ballskills and a stronger frame.
Randle Clarkson- Columbus Brookhaven PG: Played the scorers role on his team by attacking the rim and finishing or rocking his man to sleep before pulling up for deep jumpers.
Devonte Pratt- Toledo Rogers SF: Very good athlete who missed last season.
Tyler Miller- Troy SF: Shooter had another good showcase weekend and is building his name.
Brandon Bapst- Grove City SF: Athletic wing that can run the floor and has bounce.
Ronnie Williams- Columbus Brookhaven SG: If he develops his jumper he’ll be one of the state’s elite players, point blank. Great athlete that can really score in traffic.
Javon Bess- Pickerington Central SF: Continues to make the transition to PG, “JB” handled the ball well and attacked the rim with toughness all day.
Larry Moore- Cincinnati Withrow SG: Relentless slasher who really competes. Shows great speed and crossover moves. Missed last year with injury.
Tim Fleming- Fairfield PG: Under the radar scoring guard with a strong frame, tight handle, and the ability to shoot the ball.
Manny Powell- Gahanna Lincoln PG: Flashy guard continues to turn heads despite his size.
Robert Caldwell- Dayton Stivers PG: Lefty shooter with a mean crossover had a great weekend.
Nate Jameson- Columbus Northland SG: Promising scoring guard that has a nice frame and knows how to use his moves to get to the rim and finish through contact.
Alex Murphy- Licking Heights SG: Intriguing wing prospect that can really handle, pass, and slash despite not having great speed. Big frame allows him to use his body effectively.
RaChaun Martin- Dayton Thurgood Marshall PG: Talented and flashy guard who can pass the ball or use his blazing speed to get to the rim.
Jeff Larkin- Cincinnati LaSalle PG;
Blake Simpson- Cincinnati Moeller PF:
Kevin Vannatta- Upper Arlington SG:
Daylen Lanier- Dayton Ponitz SG:
Troy Mundy- Gahanna Lincoln SG:
Lindsey Hunter- Southfield Christian (MI) PG:
DeAnthony Hosley- Licking Heights SG:
As our scouting focus was on the main court where the older kids were playing we did not get a chance to watch every team play at the 9th grade age group. Of the teams we did see here’s who stood out…..
Amos “AJ” Harris- Dayton Dunbar PG: The top PG in this class isn’t even up for debate. AJ is on another level both as a scorer and distributor compared to any of his peers. A human highlight reel with his flashy style he drew big crowds at every game he played.
Isaiah Jones- Cincinnati Northwest PG: Playing at his age group, which we hadn’t seen in a while, Isaiah was able to break his man down so easily with the dribble and score. His control of the game and ability to run a team was also on display.
Reggie Mack- Cincinnati Taft PG/SG
