NO. 14 OAK HILL ACADEMY
Location: Mouth of Wilson, Virginia
Preseason Rank: 11
2018-19 record: 37-5
Final 2018-19 Super 25 ranking: 7
The Warriors aren’t built like a traditional Oak Hill team with a full stock of five-star talent to overwhelm teams in swarms all game.
What they do have is arguably the best scorer in the country in shooting guard Cam Thomas, a senior who is ranked No. 11 overall in the Chosen 25. Thomas led the Nike EYBL in scoring this summer, pumping in 30 points a game. He’s averaging even more so far this season with 37.1.
Thomas’ supporting cast will consist of very capable players like senior guard K.K. Robinson and senior wings Darrick Jones Jr., a Towson commit, and Jamari Sibley.
Oak Hill will also need forward Emmanuel Okpomo to be a force in the paint against bigger teams this season.
Still, Oak Hill’s success weighs most heavily on Thomas getting buckets, which bodes well for the Warriors.
