Less than a week after the MHSAA playoffs have concluded with the teams enjoying their new hardware, individuals are receiving rewards for their hard work and potential. Ann Arbor Skyline's 6'8" 2014 center/power forward Triston Wilson's commitment to Eastern Michigan is a solid pickup for their 2-3 zone as he provides a lot of length and athleticism.

Wilson wasn't a lock to go to Eastern Michigan even though the Eagles offer was there.
Wilson says "(They offered) a while ago. They don't have any scholarships left a '14 scholarship left so I'm walking on my freshman year" with the plan that he'll be on scholarship the next four years. The extra year will do the slender Wilson a year to develop his body and skill. his father was in a similar situation coming out of high school.
"I worked out with Western (Michigan) yesterday." Wagner, Western Illinois, St. Bonaventure, Wayne State, and Concord University were also recruiting the lanky, athletic, post player.
"He is a real good kid who has figured out a lot of things in the last couple months," were Skyline's head coach Mike Lovelace's praise.
EMU assistant Mike Brown recruited Wilson.
Wilson played for the FIST travel porgram where he was coached by EMU standout Carl Thomas.
