Burney sends MAD PROPS to all the Class of 2017 hoop superstars signing National Letters of Intent to DI college programs this week:
Alright, let’s roll it…..John Hancock Style!!
Dylan Alderson (Clarkston 6-foot-6 G) UW-Milwaukee – The definition of a new-era combo guard, size, athleticism, court IQ….they call him “Heavy D” for a reason
Matt Beachler (Lowell 6-foot-4 G) Central Michigan – Old fashioned coldhearted assassin from the perimeter, excellent 3-point shooter, much improved handles and underrated slick first step to the rack
James Beck (GR Christian 6-foot-7 F) Oakland University – SUPERSONIC SLEEPER of a swingman prospect, don’t say Burney didn’t warn ya!
Jamal Cain (Detroit Cornerstone 6-foot-7 F) Marquette – Best swingman in the state….’NUFF SAID!!
Greg Eboigbodin (Detroit U-D Jesuit 6-foot-9 F/C) UI-Chicago – Maybe the fastest-improving player in the state right now, he’s active, coachable, has length and keen instinct around the rim
Ike Eke (Detroit U-D Jesuit 6-foot-9 F/C) Marquette – Mr. Basketball dark horse, raw wreckage up front, on the glass and on the break
Keion Epps (Wayne Memorial 6-foot-7 G/F) Eastern Michigan – Giant upside on the wing for this enticing prospect
Jarad Faulds (Holt 6-foot-10 C) Columbia – Ivy League is getting itself one monster in the middle in this
Michael Flowers (Southfield A&T 6-foot-2 G) Western Michigan – Maybe the purest scorer in the class, crafty, deadly, sick range and finishing skills in the backcourt
Isaiah Livers (Kalamazoo Central 6-foot-8 F) Michigan – Hard not to love this kid’s game, plays with a nasty blend of swagger, aggression and finesse, still developing which is downright CRAZY SCARY!!
Xavier Tillman (GR Christian 6-foot-9 F) Michigan State – Best player in the class, colossal talent in the paint, high-energy, mass power and potential
