Another Purdue sighting in Ohio

According to Dayton Carroll head coach Rob Berry, Big Ten programs Purdue, Penn State, Michigan, Iowa and Minnesota have looked at two of his players. Indications are that the Purdue viewing was when Carroll played Chaminade-Julienne in the second week of February, and that Purdue is not actively recruiting either player.

Brogan Berry, a 5'8 junior, surpassed the 1,000-point mark in February, and helps run the Carroll offense from the point. Berry was named first team Division II All-Southwest this season, averaging 16.3 points per game.

Jim Dabbelt, girls basketball scout for the state of Ohio, said this of Berry -- "The premiere junior point guard in the area, Brogan can explode to the basket. Great floor leader, and can score, averaging 16 points per game. Outstanding!"

Shante Jones, a 5'9 junior, is a first year player for Carroll after averaging 28 points per game for Stivers as a sophomore. Jones can play both forward and guard. Jones was a third team All-Southwest selection as she made the transition this season from forward to guard. She averaged 17.8 points.

Jim Dabbelt said this of Jones -- "Very strong physical player. Can drive to the basket, and a pure scorer. Her first year at Carroll was a good one, scoring 18 points per game."

Faris a three-sport star?

Kelly Faris has been honored on a national level in the past year for performances in both volleyball and Basketball. Up next -- softball. According to Heritage Christian head softball coach Brenda Jones, Faris has been impressive in practice at shortstop, and likes her composure at the plate. This will be Faris' first year of organized softball since elementary school.

Player profile: Alexis Rogers

The newest player profile page on the OGFP site is for 2009 prospect Alexis Rogers of Lakota West High in Ohio.

Honor teams

We are beginning the process of posting various honor teams of interest for the 2006-07 season. First addition is the 2007 Associated Press Girls Division I-IV All-Ohio Teams. Considering the increased amount of time the staff has been spending in the state of Ohio, plus the unusually large number of Ohio prospects visiting this season, there are quite a few recognizable names on the list.
