One of the personal highlights for me in covering the Grit Regional Memorial Classic was getting back to my roots. Full disclosure while I primarily cover Michigan I was born and raised in Nashville Tennessee. So while it didn’t quite get me all the way back home. It was comforting to run into a good batch of players from the Bluegrass state this past weekend in Columbus. 

Note: I have already filed reports on post prospects Tyson Barrett Tyson Barrett 6'8" | PF Frederick Douglass | 2023 KY and Jackson Twombly Jackson Twombly 6'6" | PF Frankfort | 2022 State KY so I would encourage you to follow the links and check them out as well 

Shyhiem Drew 6-6 2022 Paul Laurence Dunbar Formed an efficient and imposing front line with Tyson Barrett Tyson Barrett 6'8" | PF Frederick Douglass | 2023 KY for Cave Gym Elite. Drew is a wide bodied old school post. Obviously very strong and is not afraid of contact. Not just a bruiser. As he showed a soft touch around the basket and is light on his feet with good footwork. On the intangibles side he appeared to have a real good attitude and played very hard.
