Rebounding is underrated. Not by coaches, sure. But in this era of $37/hour training sessions, rebounding is just something you pay somebody to do while you work on "your game."

Guess what, though, they're giving scholarships for kids that get it done on the boards, too. After all, a good defensive possession is worthless unless it's completed. Conversely, the top rebounders routinely turn an ugly possession into two points with their combination of will and physical power. 

Alphabetically, here are our top 15 men of the glass in Southwest Ohio:

Jackson Ames (2020) | 6-10 C | West Clermont

The Miami (OH) commit has rare size. At 6-foot-10, Ames is a strong bodied kid who can simply move opponents with his body. Being in position is a huge part of rebounding, not to mention his standing reach and athleticism. 

AJ Braun (2021) | 6-8 C | Fenwick

Braun has obvious size but his hands are equally impressive. Makes tough catches while surrounded by bodies in traffic. Physical kid who can both space the floor or change the game inside. Leading returning rebounder in the GCL-CoEd
