1 Lorne Bowman (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s G)   Impossible to stop out of the backcourt, efficient, smooth and always ready to rumble.

2 Tyson Acuff (Detroit Cass Tech G)  Delivering one of the best senior campaigns in the annals of the historic PSL.

3 Carlos “Scooby” Johnson (Benton Harbor F)  Could easily be No. 1 in the race, pure dynamite in so many ways.

4 Jalen Terry (Flint Beecher G)  Could easily be No. 1 in the race, the definition of lightning in a bottle.

5 Matt Nicholson (Clarkston C) — Patrolling the paint right now at a level few in Oakland County have ever reached.

6 Isaiah Jackson (Waterford Mott F)   The top college prospect in the state isn’t putting up huge numbers, but he might be the most complete player in his class in terms of ways he impacts a game.

Jarvis Walker (Muskegon G)  Should be higher on this list, best out of the backcourt on the west side of the state.

Ryan Rollins (Macomb Dakota G)  Should be higher on this list, turning in an amazing senior season repping Macomb County.

9 Sir’Real Smith (Saginaw G)  A Sagnasty Special who lives up to his name; he’s the REAL DEAL, folks!

10 Joe “Joey Basketball” Leidel (Erie-Mason G)  The quintessential gunner….enough said!
