    Ohio’s Best Boys Basketball Players
    Buckeye state boasts more talent than ever before

    By Steve Helwagen

    Over the course of the summer, Ohio’s best boys basketball players showed their stuff in various AAU and summer camp events from coast to coast.
    These events helped Ohio’s best players earn reputations as the nation’s very best. The national rankings supplied by are dotted with players from Ohio.

    Five of the current seniors are in the national top 100, led by Dayton Dunbar’s Daequan Cook at No. 16. Even better is the Class of 2007, where seven Ohio prospects are listed among the top 50. That group is led by the North College Hill duo of O.J. Mayo and Bill Walker, ranked first and fourth nationally, respectively.

    The sophomore class in Ohio also boasts two of the nation’s top 15 prospects, including Cincinnati Hughes’ Yancey Gates at No. 5.

    “You would be hard pressed to go back and find three years consecutively where there is this type of talent in the state of Ohio,” said Ohio editor Chris Johnson. “And there is not only talent but also some size. In that sophomore class, there are four or five really good players who are already 6-8 or taller.”

    The Ohio talent quotient would be even better if Herb Pope, a 6-8 forward considered a top-10 national junior, had followed through with his stated plan to transfer to a school in Ohio. Instead, he began the new school year at his old school in Aliquippa, Pa.

    With the summer camp and AAU season over, Johnson has reassessed his lists of Ohio’s top prospects and updated them. The following is a look at the top prospects in each class in Ohio high school boys basketball, as rated by Johnson.

    Having noticed the Sparq discussions in another recruiting thread (football--Jeffers), I was exploring the website, and noticed that Chichester had an elite Sparq rating at the 2005 Nike All-American Bball camp (came in just above Raymar Morgan):

    Holy jeez, look at his Sparq

    So is Chichester playing both sports for sure, or is that just what he wants to do? I'm sure Matta, like any coach, would be annoyed at having to wait until January to get an important player into uniform. And we all know that Chichester will be busy with Buckeye football in January all four years.

    Playing both football and basketball is not set in stone.....I would think they will see how he adjusts to college next year and go from there. I do know he wants to be a part of the BB program. Wait and see, I guess.
