Boys Basketball Training Camp Report – Ypsilanti Watch List

By: Scott Burnstein, December 4, 2015, 12:33 am

Corey Allen (G) – UD-Mercy-signee, simply sweetness in everything he does, sugary goodness in the backcourt, smooth touch from long range, will play more point guard this year than in the past, natural scorer, fast-improving setup master, leader, seems like he’s been putting in work at Ypsi since the 1990s

Marlin Talley (G) – Check the last name….’NUFF SAID!!

Jamazelle Davis (G) – Can you say X-Factor in ’16 (make a note, please), sensational motor, underrated scoring ability, closer’s mentality, creates positive momentum with his cagey, energetic style

Rayjon Williams-Jackson (G/F) – Will miss first couple weeks of the campaign nursing an injury suffered during football season, when he comes back to the court, WATCH OUT!!….this kid is a game-changer, does so many of the right things out there that helps his team win, outworks the comp, “glue-guy” with a penchant for going ITZ (in the zone) at the drop of a dime

Jaylin Maxwell (F) – Big guy with superior presence and a pearly set of moves on the block, a loves to-get-after-it-type, gritty banger who finishes at the rack and adjusts opponents’ shots at a consistent clip

Josh Perkins (C) – Baby bro of UofBuffalo’s Nick Perkins, same kind of game, in other words, a straight menace in the post, young and eager to get better

Marquis Smith (G) – DI football-bound gridiron star that brings athleticism, aggression and exemplary attitude to the hardwood for one more season before fulfilling his pigskin destiny in the college ranks.

Michael Bruce & Rudy Thompson (Utility) – A pair of bench barons on Sir-Grind-A-Lots that will cause havoc in spot duty and always be ready to contribute in a pinch
