As we continue to look at each position group for the 2023 Ranking recaps it is important to point out the amount of talent in the backcourt. Between Points Guards and Shooting/Combo Guards, there is a ton of talent in Ohio at the guards slots and plenty of Division I talent. Below you will find some of Ohio’s best in the 2023 class when it comes to the 2G position!

Marlon BarnesMarlonBarnes6'5" | SGBrush | 2023State#86NationOH (Brush)- Barnes has showed why he is the best SG prospect in the state in the 2023 class. At 6’6 he has already lured the interest of Miami (FL) and will likely have more HM schools offer before he’s done. Caught my attention at Flyin’ to the Hoop with his shooting touch, but had a different attribute to watch while running with Bates Fundamentals. Showed he is a solid passer and can be a distribution guy as well as a scoring threat. Not only can he shoot from range but Barnes can also finish at a high level at the rim. 

Romel HightowerRomelHightower6'5" | SGCardinal Stritch | 2023StateOH (Cardinal Stritch)- Hightower will be one of the best players in the 2023 class out of NW Ohio this upcoming season.
