Posted On: 06/1/17 11:36 AM

The month of May is officially over which means the end of another school year. Congratulations to the class of 2018 and to those moving closer to their year of graduation. Some big news and happenings took place during the 5th month of the year, so let’s get right to the news and notes in the Cincinnati area.

Recruiting News

Two more players from the Cincinnati area made commitments this month to play at the next level. First on May 3rd Summit Country sharpshooter Alex Dahling announced his commitment to D-II Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee. In Dahling the Rail Splitters get a player that will definitely be able to stretch defenses who plays with a high IQ. During his senior season with the Silver Knights Alex shot 46% from three point range.

Then on May 20th Gamble Montessori point guard Elijah Allen committed to NAIA York College in Nebraska. Allen is strong, quick guard whose ability to get in the lane can cause problems for his opponents. But what is even more important is that Elijah is a high-character young man who will work hard on the court and in the class room.

The Bazley Watch Continues

Since de-committing from his verbal to Ohio State in April, #1 ranked class of 2018 performer Darius Bazley has received a ton of attention. Michigan, Louisville, Georgetown, Syracuse and Florida are just a handful of the schools who have made an offer to the Princeton High School forward. Darius was also invited to the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp in June. Big month of May for Mr. Bazley.

Coaching News

Big time news out of Woodward High School with resignation of Coach Paul McMillan on May 18th. This was shocking news as it seemed that the Bulldogs were in the middle of a renaissance under McMillan directions having improved their win total each season he was at the helm. McMillan assistant Jarelle Redden is expected to be a candidate for the top position.
