Versatile Seniors Lead the Way

Inside Prep Sports/By TJ Kelley

The ability to play and defend multiple positions well is key to winning and takes years of development.  Often, the key to a winning team is the varsatility of a player or players and the more the merrier.  

Mismatches, different scoring options, basketball IQ, passing, the opportunity to switch off ball screens, and added ball-handlers to beat presses pose a threat and must be accounted for by the opposition.  Here's a look at some of the premier unsigned seniors in Michigan that have these characteristics (Read More)

What a Difference a Year Makes: 5 Juniors to See

Inside Prep Sports/By TJ Kelley

11/21/16

In Michigan, we like to stay on top of our basketball by knowing the up and coming players and there is no better time than now.  Michigan’s 2018 class is the best Michigan has seen as far as depth and maybe even talent in over ten years and arguably the best in the 21st Century.  Put this in to perspective, there are 28 players in this class with either Division I (25) or Division II (3) offers.  The 2017 class has 30 total committed players as of today.  That includes D I, DII, D III, and NAIA.  Michigan’s 2016 class had 20 total Division I commits.  It’s not a stretch to say the 2018 class will have 40 Division I commits.  If this class doesn’t reach 40, then expect non-D I in-state schools to reap the benefits and believe me, they are licking their chops when thinking of the talent pool that can take them to championship levels.  This class is owned and defined by size, skill, and depth.  Here’s a look at five players to see soon and often: (Read More)
