    No sooner do we get a thread going on a freshman, and the hype train begins.

    Wow. Not too many HS careers begin like this. Playing on a loaded team with multiple DI players, a freshman pours in 50 points to win a close battle between Cleveland powerhouses. Gaffney scores 11, but the youngster is the talk of the night.

    Wow! Are you a CLE guy Habanero?

    You're right - two mega powers up here. Garfield Hts. coached by Ohio legend Sonny Johnson, and as the article says Meechie is his nephew. 50 points....school record is 52 by Sonny, he better be worried!

    This is the most hyped freshman in the CLE/Akron area since you know who....LBJ. And the biggest CLE player since....wowza, Clark Kellogg? We really haven't had many super hyped freshman that I can remember. Some were hyped but nothing like Meechie is, there was David Lighty but expectations were not close.

    No, I'm a Miami Valley guy, but I follow sports all over the state out of interest.

    This kid is definitely the biggest from Cleveland since Kellogg, and he's going to get comparisons to Kyrie and Curry with his handles, outside shot, and smarts at such a young age.

    The crazy thing about it is that this was a tight, well-played battle, so it wasn't some inflated 50 just for the sake of it. They leaned on a freshman all game long to secure a six-point victory.

    I guess the next Johnson is going to get big-time hype next year, also. Sonny Johnson Jr. is apparently on his way to becoming a nationally recognized player, also. An 8th grader this year, but they are expecting similar things from him as Meechie is producing. I usually don't like hyping young kids like this, but we can all see the buzz coming.

    That's going to be one heckuva tandem - and to think they'll be together for 3 years. Garfield Heights is set for a long run.

    I am sort of. Born and raised there. When I was growing up, Garfield Heights was a very ethnic neighborhood. I guess things have changed up there. My great grandparents lived there and they were of Czechoslovakian heritage :boogie:

    I still follow Cleveland high school sports pretty closely… Especially basketball. Garfield Heights and Benedictine will fight it out for supremacy of the Northeast Ohio King. I also think that whoever survives from those two will win the State championship but that is for a different forum..
