There have been big matchups in each Minnesota and Ohio, leaving loads of alternative for gamers to place their respective stamps on the season earlier than the playoffs begin.

The lefty is excellent at creating separation for his shot, using his off arm exceptionally nicely and throwing defenders off along with his excessive change of tempo. Skaljac’s capability to make robust pictures and create for himself/others ought to permit him to contribute within the MAC subsequent yr.

Jayden Moore, 6’0, PG, Hopkins HS (MN), 2026
So far as pure level guards are involved, there aren’t many higher within the class of 2026 than Jayden Moore. The 2 method guard from J- Sizzle completely managed the offense once we noticed him, put immense stress on the rock defensively, and was distinctive rebounding the ball from the backcourt. Moore already has six triple doubles this season and is the catalyst for a Hopkins squad that has the potential to do some injury within the Minnesota State Event.

With Lakewood St. Edward being certainly one of Ohio’s perennial powers in highschool hoops, it’s uncommon that you simply see a participant seemingly come out of nowhere from the JV squad to turning into an impression participant on the varsity squad. Bryan Vlosich has finished simply that. A lights out shooter with grit, the sophomore reveals no scarcity of confidence, letting it fly from deep, and has proven the flexibility to comprise defensively. Vlosich is likely one of the brilliant younger names that has emerged this season within the Cleveland space.

Brady Ganley, 6’3, SG, Brecksville-Broadview Heights HS (OH), 2025
When it comes to wings within the Cleveland space, Brady Ganley has quietly established himself as one of many higher shooters within the junior class.
