16. Findlay Prep
Location: Henderson, Nev.
17-18 Record: 18-6
Final Super 25 Rank: N/A
Note: The rankings were published before the report emerged that Findlay would not field a team this season.
Why them: Findlay Prep is losing four of its top five scorers including four-star P.J. Fuller, but it has incoming talent that will make up for that in Dior Johnson, who transferred in February. The 2022 prospect already has at least a dozen offers and has averaged more than 30 points both of the last two seasons.
They also have talent already at the school. Class of 2021 five-star player Keon Edwards is ranked No. 17 in the country and has offers from seven schools already despite averaging just 5.3 points 4.3 rebounds in limited minutes as a sophomore. Zach Clemence, a four-star 2021 power forward, is in the same boat with two offers after averaging six points and five boards per game.
Junior Blaise Beauchamp was the second-leading scorer last year, but he only has one offer thus far. Fellow junior Saba Gigiberia has an offer from the same TCU program that Fuller is signed to join, but he hasn’t had the attention his four-star 247Sports ranking would suggest.
That all equals a young team looking vying for recruitment recognition. The best way to get that is to win. Findlay Prep could be good.
