Offers still coming in for area athletes

Offer season is still in effect in the Cincinnati area as multiple prep players secured offers this week. Let us first start with 2018 PHO #40 F Bryce Hunt (Reading) who received a JUCO offer from Schoolcraft (MI) and an offer from D-II Wheeling Jesuit (WV) on July 8th. One of the better big men in his class, Hunt is believed to have some interest from the prep level as well.

We just talked about the 40th ranked player in the class of 2018, not let’s talk about the 40th ranked player in the 2019 class F Bash Wieland (Lakota East/Cincy Lakers) who secured an offer from D-II Hillsdale College (MI) on July 2nd. Wieland has seen his stock skyrocket this summer with a strong spring and ending to the prep season.  

And not to be outdone is Moeller G/W Alec Pfriem (PHO #26) who received a D-II offer from Bellarmine University (KY) on July 7th. One of the better all-around players in the city, Alec was a big part of the Crusaders 2018 state title run.


Familiar face on the Oak Hills staff

As first reported by WCPO’s Mike Dyer, former St. Xavier head coach Jimmy Lallathin has joined Mike Price staff at Oak Hills. Lallathin spent three seasons at X which included leading the Bombers to there first GCL victory since 2013 along with its first winning season since 2015 this past season. Lallathin has previously coached with Price before at various levels, could this be a case of the long-time Highlander coach hand-picking his replacement when he decides to step aside?
