Ozie's Top Ten Rising Sophomores

Who should you be looking at in the sophomore class in Ohio. Ozie lets you know the truth...

1. Dequan Cook (Dayton Dunbar)

Pooh does it all and with humility.  Stay humble Pooh and you'll go far!  Top ten in the nation!


2. David Lighty (Cleveland St Joes)

Hard to say 2-5, but the 35 you gave me was enough. Has range, body, and athleticism. 


3. Marcus Johnson (Akron St. Vincent/St. Mary)

At Nationals, had 2 points in the first half against Cowboys finished with 23 and the win.  Enough said.


4. James Dews (Lakota East)

The best shooter in the class.  As his off the dribble stuff improves, so will his rank. 


5. Heath White (Winton Woods)

At Nationals, Herky clearly established himself as a "go-to" player.  Another Winton Woods star is born!


6. Ricky Jackson (Louisville Aquinas)

The best body in the class.  When the above the neck catches up he will be UNSTOPPABLE!


7. Chris Poellnitz (Toledo St. John)

Unfortunate departure from All-Ohio program hurt his rank.  Skill wise still top 3.


8. Adrian Graves (Hughes)

Might be the most skilled of them all.  Needs to work on consistency, but when it's head to head he gives them all the blues.


9. Josh Chichester (Lakota West)

So athletic, long, and TOUGH.  Injury at Nationals prohibited him from playing. 


10. Eddie Gray (Taft)

The best point guard in the class.  Creative, smooth, and fast, so fast!


Others in consideration:

Ward Banks, John Brown, Jeff Cumberland, Nick Duffy,  Ben Haarmon,  Jaquan Jones, Brandon Russ, Chris Scott, Derrick Smith, Julian Young
