PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
VJ King SVSM 6'6 Wing
Seth Towns: Northland High 6'7 wing
Ohio has 2 top 30 players.
While intriguing I can't help but think these guys are freshman in high school, probably 14 years old. Scarier way to think about it: they were barely born in the 90's. Certainly I hope Thad is around and gets them both but this seems like a long way away, such is life in recruiting
Tell that to LeBron James. I actually went and saw him play as a freshman in highschool while visiting some friends at Kent State. I thought the same thing you just said, "how can we be that excited about a freshman in high school?"
"I'm One Bad Buckeye, and I approve this message."
Obviously the greatest players in the history of the world are Freshmen in high school at some point, I get that. I'm just saying this is a long way off, rankings change a lot. I'd love if these 2 guys turn out to be better than Lebron and they both sign with Ohio State, don't get me wrong.
Oh I agree. I was just saying that sometimes theres a kid who's a rare physical specimen and you just know. Trust me I didn't have high expectations when I went to see LeBron but when I saw him play that day......this is pretty much the face I made:
Sullinger committed as a freshman in High school as well.
I'm hearing great things about the 2018 class as well...several of them are already shaving!
Link to the top 30 players?
Thad Matta already extended an offer to VJ King. Seth Towns is the best player on the best team in the state. So I think that merts some hype. In his first high school game he scored 22 points in the Clark Kellogg classic. He is 6'7 as a freshmen and shoots from all over the floor and handles the ball really well for a guy his size. If he grew 3 more inches and was able to keep up his shooting skills your looking at a Chris Bosh type big. If he stays the same height and just fills out he can be a dominating Small Forward. Basketball recruiting is much easier to gauge at a young age then football is. Because physical development doesnt matter as much ala Kevin Durant not being able to bench 135 in college.
