Considering team success and one’s individual influence towards winning, who will be the five faces of Cleveland basketball this season?

John Hugley (2020) | 6-9 C | Brush

Hugley is the only 2020 prospect in Ohio committed to a power five conference, inking his pledge to Pittsburgh this week. It's also likely he will be over 20 points and 10 rebounds per game, the other piece why I'd mark Hugley as the preseason Mr. Basketball favorite. 

Hugley will be matchup nightmare with his size. His Brush teammates are rather complementary, too. He won't need to defend stretch forwards every game because of freshman 6-foot-7 forward Tyler Williams. They also deploy several standout wing defenders on this team. Although Hugley is sure to see double-teams in the post, the other Brush Arcs will score if left alone. 

Bottom line: Both Hugley and Brush have extremely high ceilings. His individual floor, too, would still be a First Team All-Ohio stat-line.
