yes this is Jon Hood under this mop….I like the kid already

On this Turkey day, as you and your family are resting and enjoying bad football, a little info for you. A website called “Hoopscouting” (never heard of it, but hey a lot of people have never heard of us either) has produced its Rank of the Top High School players in the state. The list is pretty extensive and is good for discussion fodder. Below are the top guys for the Senior and Junior class, and the link below actually lists the top 7th graders in the state (how would anyone know that by the way….that may be the silliest thing I have ever seen….that kid had a STELLAR 6th grade season!).
