Agunwa Okolie 6'7 F 2013
No one in the GTA region has impressed me more than this star forward named Agunwa Okolie. He has an amazing upside for his game and he can play with men older than he is as he did over the summer with Kyle Julius & the *A* Game team. If heated, Agunwa can score easily taking his man one-on-one or even attacking with the double team. Although his jump shot consistency can be improved, he still is able to knock down the occasional jumper from time to time. I witnessed this young forward dominate at the *A* Game Camp in 2010 and 2011 which hosted big time names such as Jamal Reynolds, Justin Edwards, Kashrell Lawrence, Henry Tan, Connor Gilmore, Justin Jarvis, Isaiah Watkins & many more. He completely dominated the competition at the event and he established that he is a premier player from Canada. Agunwa's close comparison as of right now can be Lamarcus Aldridge or even Lamar Odom. As of right now Agunwa is probably the best one-on-one basketball player in Ontario this year. Other names who can dominate a man to man defense are Andrew Wiggins, Justin Edwards, Nick Madray, Richard Audu, Rohan Boney & Dyshawn Pierre. Its time to wait and see how this young gun will do during the summer as he is playing for Grassroots Canada AAU.

Jamal Reynolds 6'4 G 2013
I was very impressed with the effort Jamal Reynolds puts forth once the ball has been tossed for tip-off. He has a high motor and he decides when to score and when to create a stop on defense. He has a scorers mentality and it is obvious that he attained this mentality by watching NBA players such as Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. Although I don't get to see this guard shoot as much, he can still hit it down from mid-range. Flagrant Fouls and *A* Game Hoops did a great job exposing his talents in April. Out of Ontario, Jamal is probably the top 20 prospects in my list for the class of 2013. Ranking systems should include him at a higher rank as he possesses a very high basketball IQ and a great feel for the game. He is only 17 and he is still growing which is remarkable. Jamal should look forward to playing in USA in the coming season, and as for interest. Sources tell me that University of Albany have been interested in this player and Isaiah Watkins for a while now. Time will tell if this great player deserves his rankings in my book.
