Both Wayne Blackshear and Zach Price’s high school teams were featured in the Powerade/RISE ESPN Fab 50 pre-season rankings.
Wayne Blackshear’s Morgan Park squad ranked in at #34
35. Morgan Park (Chicago, Ill.)
Last Season’s Record: 28-6, Class 4A regional finalist
Top Player: SF Wayne Blackshear (6-5, Sr.)
Outlook: Blackshear is a Mr. Basketball candidate for Illinois. He is No. 33 in the ESPNU 100 and has committed to Louisville. The Mustangs also feature shooting guard Jerome Brown (6-4, Sr.) among its returnees. Brown is one of the best at his position in the state. He is committed to Illinois-Chicago.
Zach Price’s J-Town Chargers squad ranks in at 48.
47. Jeffersontown (Jeffersontown, Ky.)
Last Season’s Record: 21-8, regional semifinalist
Top Player: SF Tony Kimbro (6-5, Sr.)
Outlook: The Chargers could be the team to beat in the Bluegrass State since they were reinforced with two off-season transfers. Kimbro played the last two seasons at POWERADE FAB 50 ranked Christ School (Arden, N.C.) and is high major college recruit. Zach Price (6-10, Sr.) played last year at St. Edward (Lakewood, Ohio) and has committed to Louisville.
