Prep Hoops Ohio’s Top 250 Expo isn’t this Sunday, or next Sunday, or the following, but the one after that. September 16 at Pickerington North. So, you have plenty of time to sign-up, and you can do that right here.
Wooster, Denison, Hiram, Marian, Marietta, Mount St. Joseph, Otterbein, Charleston, Mount Union, and Wittenberg have already RSVP’d for the showcase. You can play in front of them, and here’s the point of today’s article, also against legitimate competition. Nearly 50 players have signed up so far, most of which are bona fide college prospects, others with something to prove. There’s room for plenty more to join, and here’s the sophomore guards you’d play against.
Carson Seemann, 5’11” PG, Moeller
Seemann is an elusive ball-handler that can create his own shot and hit mid-range jumpers with some regularity. He’s a score-first kid that puts pressure on the defense and handles the ball confidently. We’re excited to monitor his defensive impact and how he manages a team in a showcase setting.
Camron Gaston, 5’7” PG, Rossford
Gaston overcomes a height disadvantage with major ball skills, quickness, and court sense. Although he’s a scoring point guard with excellent range and sneaky touch in the paint, Gaston also makes plays for others by shoveling interior passes to bigs. He has the ball on a string and could be a dominate playmaker with a little more size. However, his physical stature didn’t stop him from earning the starting point guard spot at Rossford as a freshman.
Cody Lantz, 6’2” G, Shelby
We’re exciting to see Lantz once again after he flashed some ability at the GRBAs with Extreme Heat. He’s an athletically built guard that found his shots naturally within the motion offense. Pretty quick first step and finishing ability. Also possesses a capable jumper.
Gabe Elsawy, 6’0” G, Aurora (#62)
Elsawy is another guard who was on fire at the GRBA to end the grassroots season. We’re exciting to see if his shooting remains consistent, as he was knocking it down off the catch and dribble. He can create space for himself or facilitate offense.
Others: Matthew Miller (Wheelersburg), Landon Turnbull (Hicksville), Kyle Swiergosz (Cardinal Stritch), Xavier Combs (Franklin), Will Homan (Miami Valley), Charles DeLuca (Bishop Ready)
