2. Ray McCallum, Jr.  – This current NBA point guard landed in Michigan as a junior at Birmingham DCD after playing his first two seasons of varsity hoops in Bloomington, Indiana  and capped his prep career with a Class B state title in Keener Kountry with the ‘Jackets in 2010

3. Chris Dewberry – This sharpshooting bucket hoarder came to Southfield Christian from Waterford Mott for his senior year and helped lead SCS to its first of three straight Class D state crowns by dropping a 30-spot in the 2012 state finals

4. Angelo Taylor – This athletic power forward made huge waves by leaving Pontiac Northern and enrolling at arch-rival Clarkston for his senior campaign and teamed with 1998 Mr. Basketball and McDonald’s All-American Dane Fife to spark the Wolfpack to the Class A quarterfinals

5. DaShonte Riley – This wiry, agile big fella and shot-swatter extraordinaire arrived at Birmingham DCD as a sophomore and his presence in the post was a major reason why the Yellowjackets bagged a surprise Class B state title in 2007
