Alonzo Gaffney rising among the nation's top college basketball recruiting prospects

Alonzo Gaffney is among the top 30 high school basketball juniors in the country. Just a quick look to the national rankings from 247Sports.com, which has him 19th in the 2019 class, and ESPN (27th) makes the 6-foot-9 forward the highest-rated player in Ohio. "At first, I looked at it and I'm shocked," he said. Gaffney's rise nationally came with dozens of scholarship offers. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Five-star big man Will Baker stands out at Thanksgiving Hoopfest
