It’s always awesome to see two teams from the same area both sit amongst the top five in their respective state. However, it’s pretty rare when you see them from the same city from a basketball hotbed such as Florida, much less from the same conference. Enter Oak Ridge and Olympia from the Orange County Public School League in Orlando.
Having both respectively won their side of the conference, it set the stage for a hyped game that had around a dozen potential D1 players from both sides combined playing in the game amidst a sold out crowd at Olympia. Ultimately, it was Oak Ridge, ranked No. 31 in the current FAB 50 National Team Rankings, who won the game 87-73. There was no shortage of players who really helped themselves on both sides.
Here are a few of the top performers from the OCPS championship game:
Jamier Jones, 6’6, SF, Oak Ridge HS (FL), 2025
One of the elite juniors in the nation, Jamier Jones just continues to take his game to new heights. Always a truly special finisher at the rack, he is now a much more confident 3-point shooter and is an absolute terror as an offensive rebounder. Furthermore, Jones has really bought in on the defensive end and put massive pressure on the rock as an on ball defender. There wasn’t much more that Jamier could have done throughout his 27-point, 11-rebound showing to lock up his spot as a Top 5 player in the class.
Jordan Tillery, 6’5, PG/SG, Oak Ridge HS (FL), 2024
While Jamier Jones brought all the highlights, Jordan Tillery brought extreme versatility to the table, playing all three perimeter positions. His 20 points and seven assists don’t even begin to explain the level of impact that he had on both ends of the hardwood. Heading to Georgia Southern, Tillery has the potential to be an immediate impact D1 player due to his size and versatility from the backcourt.
Kameren Wright, 6’5, SG/SF, Olympia HS (FL), 2024
One of the better unsigned seniors in Florida is Kameren Wright, an athletic swingman with deep range. Against Oak Ridge, he dropped 17 points via a flurry of deep threes and blazing takes to the rack. Wright won the Pro16 title this summer with 1 Family and has already taken numerous official visits to D1 programs such as Murray State and Hofstra with high majors closely monitoring.
Kaiden White, 6’4, PG/SG, Olympia HS (FL), 2024
Not being from Florida, I wasn’t familiar with Kaiden White heading into this game. Leaving it, I’m glad that I made the choice to see the OCPS title game. A 6’4 guard with some wiggle to his game, White is a serious shooter who can create for others and has awesome court vision. Showing that he can more than hold his own against Oak Ridge’s abundance of D1 talent, White is a player you’re definitely going to want to track throughout the late signing period.
Jalen Reece, 6’0, PG, Oak Ridge HS (FL), 2025
While he’s not the flashiest player in the class of 2025, there aren’t many lead guards smarter than Jalen Reece in the class. The coach’s son plays the game at his own speed, has an incredibly tight handle, and showed off super deep range. The 15 points and 10 assists that he had against Olympia exemplify the way that he’s able to control the game, and the way he will be able to do the same at the high major level.
Tyler Johnson, 6’5, SF/PF, Oak Ridge HS (FL), 2024
In today’s game, Tyler Johnson is exactly what everyone looks for in a forward. He’s skilled enough to play small forward, tough enough to slide to power forward when needed, and athletic enough to defend both at the high major level. Johnson is exactly the type of glue guy that you need and the 10 points that he had against Olympia don’t even begin to tell the impact he had on the game. The Florida Rebels forward should serve a similar role next year in the ACC at Virginia Tech.
Vophcy Prophete, 6’5, SG/SF, Olympia HS (FL), 2024
A player who I hadn’t seen before was Vophcy Prophete, a bit of a throwback wing. Constantly throwing people off with his change of pace, he showed an innate ability to finish in traffic by taking slower steps and finishing with opposite hand or off opposite leg while also maintaining a presence as a 3-point threat. Owning no shortage of confidence, Prophete scored 20 points against perennial powerhouse Oak Ridge and is still open in the recruitment process.
