Per usual in Central Ohio — one of the Midwest's best areas in developing college basketball recruits — each player in the Top 20 will play on scholarship at the next level.

Jeremiah Francis | 6-2 PG | Pickerington Central

Outside of a scrimmage at Lima Senior in November 2017, we haven't watched Francis hoop since his 16U season with Indiana Elite because of injury — a blind-spot that makes him very hard to place in the rankings. Nonetheless, his dynamic scoring ability from all areas of the floor and command of the court still projects nicely once he's able to return at full-health for the North Carolina Tar Heels. 

Ben Roderick | 6-5 SF | Olentangy Liberty 

Roderick scores the ball efficiently from anywhere on the court. Capable of creating separation in very few dribbles, or none at all, whether it's facing-up from deep or driving to the lane. He adjusts his release-point as a finisher to avoid shot-blockers — proving capable of finishing ambidextrously from either side of the basket. The unsigned senior's return from a junior-season-ending ACL injury was the story of the year among Ohio prospects.
