Powell averaged a team-best 13.1 points per game as a freshman with the Eagles. He led the team with 20 points in a 51-34 loss to St. Francis DeSales in the state semifinals.

Powell is the first member of the 2024 class to receive a scholarship offer from Dayton. PrepHoops.com ranked Powell fourth among Ohio recruits in the 2024 class.
