Jeremiah Oden was one of the breakout stars of the PrepHoopsIllinois Top 250 Expo this fall.  At 6’6” the St. Rita 2019 prospect has a projectable frame with long and lanky arms.  He initially stood out in the 3 on 3 games where he was effective both offensively and defensively.  Potential defensively being able to guard multiple positions.  He was even blocking shots on the perimeter on three point attempts.  Has the ability to attack off the bounce with his long strides, but is a bit loose with it through traffic at times.  Big time transition player that runs the floor and finishes above the rim.  Really looking forward to seeing the development of this prospect.

He spoke with us about the camp.

“The camp is great.  A lot of guys I know and we are going at each other.”

How would he describe his game?

“I am a long and lanky wing that can shoot the three, but I like to go to the basket a lot.  I think I am a mismatch.”

Defensively he is elevating his game.

“Defense is something I didn’t always do well so I am trying to make sure I am always a lockdown defender.  Keep my man in front of me and be active on the boards.”

Nothing going on with recruiting at this stage.  Look for his stock to rise!
