Pogue also plays his high school basketball with Daequan Cook, yet another high profile prospect. Pogue and Cook led Dunbar High School, of Dayton Ohio, to the Division 2 State Championship. "Yeah, I'm just celebrating our state championship, we won the Division 2 title," Aaron said. In that game, Pogue had 10 points and 12 rebounds. On the season Pogue helped lead his team to the title by averaging 18 points per game and 12 rebounds per game.
Michigan State, Louisville, Kentucky, Seton Hall, and Texas are the schools making the most noise in his recruitment, but Pogue says two stand out. "Louisville and Kentucky are my favorites right now," stated Pogue. That's good news for Kentucky in their search for a strong post presence. "Most of the schools are recruiting me as a four (power forward)," Pogue says. If Pogue does choose Kentucky as his college destination, he'll be only about two hours away from his home town of Dayton.
Pogue, by his own discription, is the kind of post player Kentucky has lacked since the departure of former power forward, Chuck Hayes. "When I get in position in the post, I feel like I can't be stopped. I can also face up and put the ball on the floor, and take it to the basket," Pogue states. The unselfish space-eater also has worked hard at getting his teammates involved, by becoming a good passer out of the double team, and finding the open man.
Aaron will camp at the ABCD camp this summer. The D-1 Greyhounds, his AAU team, will also compete in several top notch summer events. Pogue is currently a three star prosepct according to Scout.com, though with a solid summer, Pogue could see his stock rise to a four star prospect.
