You are missing Jalen Hudson for Florida. He's a graduate of St. Vincent - St. Mary (no S unless you are showing possession)

Sort of missing. Although he played two years at SVSM and was born in Akron, Hudson has his hometown listed as Richmond, Virginia. So he wouldn't be in my list, although it's worth pointing out. Thanks

What connection to Ohio does Gary Trent Jr. have, other than his dad playing at OU? Before he was at Pro Prep, he was in Minnesota.

Read the part before the list of names. All these players have their listed hometown as an Ohio city. Gary Trent Jr., on Duke's official website, lists Columbus, Ohio as his hometown (and went to HS at Apple Valley before Prolific).

According to this he changed the spelling - that explains the root of this issue ?

From Wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zavier_Simpson

Zavier Marquis Simpson (formerly Xavier Simpson) is an American basketball player for the Michigan Wolverines who is playing his sophomore season for the 2017–18 Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team. He attended Lima Senior High School where he won the 2016 Ohio Mr. Basketball as a senior.

According to one of the Michigan blogs it was Zavier at birth and he's returning to the original spelling.

One of the announcers for the UK-K-State game the other night kept referring to Xavier Sneed of K-State as X-avier and I doubt that's how it's pronounced.
