‘19 prospects Jay Rodgers and Sam Towns have both transferred from Springfield to Pickerington Central. Tigers become even more loaded with two quality players who logged important minutes for Springfield last season.

(8-20-18) So here you go…Pickerington Central picks up two key players from Springfield and lose two players to Lima Senior. The Tigers boys basketball team was getting plenty of national attention in past few years, so this makes this a story of interest.
In the new world of high school sports no one should be surprised when moves like these take place any time or any where. This situation is interesting and should gain some statewide attention.
For everyone who is wondering & asking me, I will not be attending Pickerington Central this year. I will be going to Lima Senior High School …

Josiah Fulcher’s twitter account verifies he is moving to Lima Sr.
All players involved are top prospects in Ohio, most will ask if the new OHSAA transfer rule will force these transfers to play the first half of the season and sit out the 2nd half and miss the state tournament.
Controversial transfers are nothing new to Lima Senior over the past several years. 2017 saw two Puerto Rican transfers fight the OHSAA over eligibility and the high profile transfer of current Michigan Star Xavier Simpson transferred to Lima Senior from LCC, after his father, Quincey Simpson, became Lima Sr’s head coach. The older Simpson is very active in AAU basketball and has relationships with some of the top players in the country. Unable to verify if Jamir Simpson is a relative of the Lima Simpsons.
