There is plenty of talent in the class of 2018 in the Cincinnati area that is still looking for a home at the next level. And while a lot of those players are ranked as the best in the state, some are under the radar talents. Here is a list of the top unsigned seniors in the Cincinnati area. Today we look at the off/shooting guards.
Dominic “DJ” Brewton, Hughes High School (PHO #56)- Since debuting in mid-January with Big Red, this talented guard has shown why he is considered one of the best scorers in Cincy. DJ is averaging over 19ppg this season while shooting over 50% from the floor. While at his best in transition, he starting to find his stroke from the outside as well the past few games. Brewton currently has offers from Northwood (MI) and St. Leo (FL) among other D-II offers.
Darweshi Hunter, Princeton High School (PHO #74)- Like Brewton this young man also is in the conversation as one of the best scorers in the city. Darweshi so far this year is averaging 18.1ppg with a shooting split of 57/48/78. Yes, you read that right. Hunter has offers at the D-II level from schools including Findlay and LIU-Post amongst a host of others.
Noah Pedelty, Mason High School (PHO #85)- Versatility is the name of the game for this talented senior. Noah ranks 6th in the GMC in scoring (15.2) and in 2nd is assist (3.1) and blocks (1.2) per game. Combine his versatility with his athleticism and high IQ and you have a player that can provide an impact on both ends of the court. Pedelty would be a quality commit for a program at the D-II level.
Colin Shaw, Indian Hill High School (PHO #94)- Even though he has been at the top of everyone’s scouting report for the past few seasons, Colin just finds a way to get buckets. Averaging over 17ppg this season, Colin is at his best in the mid-range areas and getting to the rim. For the third straight season he has been to the free throw line over 100, two of those years he was at 150 or more attempts.
Lorenzo Sparks, North College Hill High School (PHO #94)- While you may not know the name, this young man has putting up numbers for the last few years. Lorenzo leads the MVC in scoring at 20.8ppg and is also in the top ten in rebounding (7.7, 6th) and steals (2.9, 2nd) and plays as hard as anyone in the city. If you are looking for a do it all guard at the D-II/NAIA/JUCO this is a young man to keep in mind.
Kyle Johnson, Madeira High School- This guard is as athletic as they come in the Cincinnati area. If you don’t believe just look at his Hudl highlights. On the season Kyle is averaging 13.5ppg with a shooting split of 46/35/67. In a November interview with PHO Johnson mentioned that he has interest at the NAIA level from University of Cumberlands, Mount Vernon Nazarene and Union College.
Zach Harp, Elder High School- Zach can flat out shoot the ball, and with range as well. Currently averaging 14 points per game, Harp is shooting 37% from three-point range and 78% from the line. He also showed an approved ability to shoot of off one and two dribbles as well.
