In addition to the Buckeye Prep Elite Showcase all stars and MVPS that we’ve previously highlighted, we wanted to be more expansive in terms of our coverage and dig a little deeper in order to find standout performers. To this end, and as part of our process, we asked our showcase coaches, as part of their evaluations, to identify players who stood out in several areas.  We thought it was important to determine those players who defended the best; were the most skilled; hustled the most; showed the best attitude; and represented the “top prospect” on their respective teams. We also asked the coaches to identify the best “Underclassman” on their teams in order to give the youngest players the chance to shine. The decisions were solely left up to the coaches and are presented below.  Congratulations to all of the players who made the list!
