    Mickey Pearson has been one of my favorite players to watch the past couple of seasons. I haven't seen most of these guys in person but I can tell you that Pearson is a player to watch.

    Being a West KY guy, Potter is pretty darn good as well. Hope he performs well.

    I think 9 are pretty easy:
    Tandy
    Potter
    Pearson
    Wales
    Johnson
    Scrubb
    Frederick
    Moreno
    Taylor

    There are a lot of options for the 10th spot, but I lean toward Cooper Robb. I know a lot of people are high on Powell, but he didn’t stand out to me when I watched Trinity. Maybe he’ll change my mind next week.

    I haven’t ever seen Potter, but based on what I hear about him he needed to be on the list. I have seen the rest of them this year.

    At start of season I would have Johnson above Scrubb but for the second half of the season Scrubb has played at another level.
    6'6", can handle Ok with smooth jumper and can absolutely jump out of the gym. Man amongst boys in several games I saw him play.

    No, I haven't seen everyone play and I doubt many have either. Geography and level of competition prevent that from happening for anyone in the state. The scouts are coming to see Tandy and Johnson. I would dare say John CALIPARI came and watched Tandy play and I'd say he only looks at the elite talent in the entire nation.

    Not disputing they are the top 2 because I have not seen either play, but Fredrick is in the mix. Last year as a Junior before he signed with Iowa, there were Big 10, Big East, and SEC schools there at just about every game.

    AJ could play college basketball at a lower level division if it wasn’t for football. He is the leader for CovCath and they have taken their level of play to a new level since he returned. The main thing about him is his stats will never wow anyone...he just does so many little things that make him paramount to their success.

    They won lots of games with out Mayer but will agree Madison Central game he was special and took the team to another level. CJ is the leader with his play but he looks so much more comfortable- confident playing with AJ. AJ CJ bond on the floor is special and Covington Catholic fans I have talked to express what class kids they are off the floor. I do think Walter will need to be the Walter Xavier recruited he has been a yo yo all year. One game he looks like a force the state hasnít seen another game totally not engaged. Kid is special and huge and if you hadnít seen him look out. 7-2 and 275 is a big big kid!
