Looking Forward To: Some of the top players in the Midwest will be at the Dunk 4 Diabetes event this weekend. One of the more intriguing prospects is class of 2016 power forward Omari Spellman. Spellman could be the No. 2 prospect in the state of Ohio in the class, and has a lot of college coaches buzzing. Another Ohio native in that class is Derek Funderburk, a near 6-foot-10 center, Funderburk showed major potential during the summer, and it will be interesting to see if he has taken that next step as a prospect.
Also there are the prep school kids such as Jalen Coleman and Miles Bridges. They are supremely talented underclassmen who have come a long way in the last year, and both are capable of big time scoring games.
Then you also have the five-star talent like Carlton Bragg, JaQuan Lyle, and Teki Gill Caesar who have shined all season long, and will again look to put up big numbers at this event.
