Class of 2011 Player Rankings

Aaron Thomas of The Queen City Prophets
We're going to start off the Cincinnati player rankings with the class of '11, this year's seniors. Here are the big names that, along with several others and probably some surprises, are going to make some noise this year on the prep scene:

  1. Aaron Thomas- 6'5 SG Withrow: Great athlete who can score at will, elite slasher and finisher who can also pull up from deep, terrific competitor who will rise to any challenge
  2. Brandon Neel- 6'3 SG Lasalle: Great athlete that can also really shoot, plays with a great swagger, talented wing who can create his own shot
  3. Kirby Wright- 6'7 PF Middletown: Skilled and athletic big man with great potential
  4. Jabriel Coaston- 6'5 PF Roger Bacon: Hard worker inside and outside, versatile player that brings energy, skill, and athleticism
  5. Carl Porter- 6'4 SF Withrow: Best leaper in the class, dominates the glass on both ends, runs the floor well, plays within himself on offense, emerging skill set and hustle give him potential
  6. Charlie Byers- 6'0 PG Moeller: Leader and fiery competitor who will not be out worked on either end, talented with ball in his hands and can create for himself or others
  7. Semaj Christon- 6'0 PG Winton Woods: Talented guard who can score in bunches
  8. Ulysses Thomas- 6'3 SG Princeton: Big time shooter and deceptive athlete
  9. Jalen Billups- 6'6 PF Shroder: Wide bodied big man with skill set who can also jump
  10. Gene Primus- 6'1 SG Aiken: Toughest player on the court, finds ways to score, great defender
  11. Mike Boyd- 6'0 PG Lakota East: Tough lead guard that can score and pass
  12. Kadeem Palmer- 5'9 PG Taft: Flashy ballhandler and passer who can also score
  13. Chris Lowe- 6'3 SG Taft: Shooter who can also play the point forward, great defender
  14. Jamarcus Crawford- 5'10 SG West High: Big time talent just needs to put it all together, capable of scoring with anyone, plays with chip on shoulder but must always keep composure
  15. Jaihlen Teague- 6'0 SG Middletown: Pure scorer with great range who loves big shots.
Honorable Mention: Alex McGlothin (SF Walnut Hills), Josh Johnson (SG Middletown), Marquez Johnson (SF Taft), Jared Bryant (C Roger Bacon), Dwayne White (PF Taft), Femi Thompson (PF Aiken), Phil Cooke (PF Lakota West), Kario Cannon (SF Shroder), Josh Chancellor (C West High), Ryan Flemming (SF Lasalle), Kevin Jones (SF Withrow), Dennis Thomas (SF Winton Woods), Alex Barlow (SG Moeller), Jay McCants (PF Princeton), RJ Leppert (SG Lakota East)

There are lots of other top players but this is just who I believe to be the best of the best.
