FIVE FOR FIGHTING – The Top Big Men On The State’s Boys Basketball Court
1. Ike Eke (Detroit U-D Jesuit) – It’s SWAGGER OVERLOAD when it comes to this Blue-Chipper, the sky’s the limit for this active, agile and aggressive post prowler who just keeps getting better and better and can cause a multitude of match-up problems with his length, hops and high energy antics protecting the tin, the definition of coachable and a winner……signed with Marquette
2. Jack Ballantyne (Macomb Dakota) – Ready for a GINORMOUS senior season after an injury plagued junior campaign in the Catholic League at De La Salle, has added to his arsenal the ability to step outside of the lane and consistently knock down jumpers, will bring tremendous value to whatever DI college program snares his services
3. Greg Eboigbodin (Detroit U-D Jesuit) – Plain and simple  the picture of a SIR-GRIND-A-LOT with his back to the basket, this kid oozes upside potential, pesky defender, making huge strides on offense……signed with the University of Illinois-Chicago
4. Jalen Tobias (Detroit Cass Tech) – The No. 1 man in the middle in the PSL has made the move to CT from Renaissance and will be a thorn in the side of Technicians opponents for the next two seasons, the kind of kid that is equal sizzle and grizzle and ready to compete on every possession   
5. Jaron Faulds (Holt) – Probably the premier pure center in the state, burns up the block with his stellar fundamentals, exceptional footwork, fiery demeanor and fierce play on both ends of the floor……signed with Columbia
