John Carroll High School standout Ron Steele is one of the nation’s fastest rising prospects going into the summer.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound point guard led John Carroll to a state championship this past season. Steele was named the tournament's MVP after scoring 25 points and pulling down 13 rebounds in the final game against Bob Jones.
Steele, who is rated four-stars by Rivals.com, is lock to receive recognition as one of the nation’s top forty prospects for the class of 2004.
The Good: True point guard with great vision and handle … nice range on his jumper but also excels at driving hard to the basket … very athletic with a nice vertical jump … strong defensive player and rebounds well for his size … floor general who runs the show.
Needs Improvement: Sometimes proves to be too unselfish … needs to look for shot more … can be too creative and causing unforced turnovers.
Bottom Line: Steele is a big time athlete with major basketball skills. Steele is also one of the state’s top football players and is a good student and very coachable. He did not receive some of the press of the more heralded guards in the 2004 class due to him playing on the 16 & Under AAU circuit, but belongs near the top of the list.
