Coach Cal said...

Jason Ware said...

I am sure that all these players are good. But u have to. Have to check out Ashon Riggins aka A Game from Hamilton OH. Beast freshman guard starting varsity. Im dead serious he could run point for a college team right now. Maturity is ridiculous. Super under control handles that intimidates pressure.

RS Que said...

Had a chance to see a 6'3". Freshmen left hander play in Cleveland OH -Deven Stover, what a nice stroke and a high basketball IQ, gets team mates involved and plays and all around game should be on someone's radar. At St. Ignatius HS a true freshman.

have to check out Michael Almonacy. a 5'11 pg from brentwood new York. he been on varsity since 8th grade. he is a poised mature for his age, has a great basketball IQ. has a great outside jumper. a good pull up and can attack the rim. he a pass first point guard. his coach trusts him with the ball in his hands when the game is on the line. he has gotten offers for top high school in the metro area, like LUHI, Our savoir of new America, st ant, st johns, st marys. and some top aau teams like team scan and new rens and the ny panters. im not wasting your time check him out he could be ranked in the top 100 or even the top 50 and he is a top point guard in the country. check him out Michael Almonacy 5'11 pg class of 2016.

Amir Coffey.... he's on team USA and was the best player for Hopkins HS in Minnesota last year, which produces a lot of High Division 1 talent.

Bball_Fan910 said...

Im right there with you steve....he did say it was just an "opinion". Still #mind blowing

Jarron Cumberland is the best player in 2016 class in Ohio. I'll take him over VJ King any day. I watched King in state tournament, he was a non-factor. All Jarron did was average 20ppg as a freshman. He showed up at all the big games. He needs to be recognized. Especially on this list!

John Doe said...

You'll want to keep an eye on this kid - already with interest from Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Nebraska, North Carolina State, Virginia, Wichita State, George Mason, Northeastern, Colgate, Radford and yes Kansas.

Ryan Gomes (2016)
6'10" C/PF
Friends School of Baltimore
