Hughes is one to watch

Frankie Hughes is a high scoring guard with a lot of upside.

Ohio’s class of 2016 continues to impress with the depth and talent that it possesses. One of the better prospects who is having an excellent junior year is Garfield Heights (Ohio) shooting guard Frankie Hughes.

At around 6-foot-3 with a good handle, excellent athleticism, and an ability to score, Hughes is someone that has really opened up eyes, and continues to get better.

“I’ve been playing alright,” said Hughes of the season. “The team is doing great. We have come together as a team and a family, so everything is going good.”

He continued, “I am getting stronger and learning to attack better off the dribble and just improving my fundamentals.”

Recruiting wise numerous schools are heavily involved with Hughes, and more are sure to come into the mix.

“I have Dayton, Xavier, Minnesota, Cincinnati, and all of the MAC schools,” said Hughes.

He continued, “I have been to Dayton and Xavier, but I want to make a lot more visits.”

About Xavier, Hughes said, “I like them a lot. They don’t have a football team so it is all about basketball and the school goes crazy during basketball games. If you go there and you play basketball you get a lot of love and are treated well.”

When it comes to Dayton, Hughes said, “I like Dayton because it is a smaller campus and they are a team that plays with a ton of heart and they have a great coaching staff as well.”

For now Hughes has no timeline for a decision and says his focus is on helping his team accomplish a big goal.

“I am looking forward to getting down to state, that is our goal and I am confident we can get there,” said Hughes.
