    I don't think Jaxon Hayes should have even been close to that high if we are basing the list on what was accomplished in high school because he basically had one good year at Moeller.

    And Johnny Wolf should be on this list. He beat OJ Mayo and Bill Walker his senior year.

    Can't see it unfortunately.

    Hayes is incredibly overrated for this list. If it's more about what they actually did in high school then LaSalle Thompson or Tyrone Hill should have been ahead of him.
    A glaring error to me was omitting Andrew Denson out of Purcell. Scored over 1000 pts in the old GCL and didn't play in college because he was the #1 pick of the Braves straight out of high school in 1984. Should have at least been in Hon mention group if not higher.

    Good stuff though.

    I can't see the list, but I forgot about Mayo and Billy Walker...
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant Ö isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    Not even an honorable mention for Josh Duncan? Just trying to make sure my alma mater if fully represented...

    I can't see the article either, but I'd like to see who was ranked and see where Denson fits. He was a pretty good player but he was all Purcell had in those days. If the list includes Middletown Cris Carter should be on it - that guy could play some ball.
