Players earn higher rankings in several different ways. For one, if it is a player that we at Prep Hoops Ohio haven’t seen enough, further evaluation allows us to sometimes realize players should be higher or sometimes lower than previously listed. More commonly though, players that turn heads or make incredible strides in their development tend to see their stock rise and as a result see their ranking increase. For many of the players on this list, the latter example comes into effect. The below 8 guys are deserving of their higher ranking as some have become some of the top players now available in the state. 

Desmond Watson Desmond Watson 6'5" | SF Columbus DeSales | 2021 State #207 Nation OH (27-->10) Columbus DeSales- The 6’5 wing exploded on the scene from the beginning of the year, picking up D1 offers from Ohio U, Stetson, Cleveland State. Possessing incredible vertical bounce and quickness on the perimeter, Watson is a nightmare to prepare for defensively and has shown his athleticism is unreal. His now Top 10 ranking is definitely warranted and he could see even more D1 offers come in next Fall.

Brayden Sipple Brayden Sipple 6'5" | SG Blanchester | 2021 State OH (44-->24) Blanchester- It’s hard to overlook an individual that averaged over 30 points per game
