(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.

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.

OHSAA Rules That Lima Sr’s Quinones Is Now Eligible

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.
