Asked what schools were working the hardest, Ibby said Maryland, West Virginia, Clemson, Iowa State, Rutgers and Kansas State have been “pushing hard.” “When you go to college, you have to make sure you are comfortable there,” Esa told the Plain-Dealder. “You have to make sure you can see yourself there for the next four years of your life. It’s important to make sure that the coaching staff is like your second family. That’s a big part of my decision.” Ahmad led Shaker Heights in points (26.5), rebounds (11.5), assists (3.5), blocks (2) and steals (2) per game and was named Associated Press Division I Player of the Year statewide in Ohio.
