Last breakdown, from the Super Sixteen I take a look at some pure talent from the Central Ohio area. 


• Ben Fort (6’5” / W 2019 / All-Ohio Red 17U / Reynoldsburg): Ben Fort is one of the top remaining players in the class of 2019 in Central Ohio. A wing that can defend multiple position, flashing versatility. Fort was a nightmare in transition, always attacking the rim with force. Besides playing above the rim, Fort showed his shooting ability. A catch and shoot threat that got himself plenty of open looks. The senior plays the passing lanes well, forcing turnovers. Going down to the end of his recruitment, don’t be surprised if a school pulls the trigger late. 

• Taquan Simington (6’2” / CG 2020 / South): I watched Simington one game, and he simply did what he normally does, make plays. The ability to score as a slasher and off the dribble is there. Simington has a knack for getting after loose balls and rebounds, and competes at a high level. A terror in transition where he showed ability to dish it, or finish it. 

• Chance Groce (6’5” / 2021 / Ohio Hoopsters
