Spring Vacation – Hoopsters Head Out Of Town For AAU Ball

By: Scott Burnstein, May 18, 2017, 12:27 pm
CHECK THE NEW TREND: Many of the best boys basketball players in the state are opting to play their offseason hoops with out-of-state AAU teams.
Brandon Johns (East Lansing F) – Arguably the No. 1 player in the junior class is filling it up with the Indiana’s Indy Heat
Foster Loyer (Clarkston G) – Arguably the No. 1 point guard in the junior class is running the show for All-Ohio Red out of the Buckeye State in preparation for heading to the Big Ten and handling floor general duties at Michigan State in two years.
Taylor Currie (Clarkston C) – Maybe the top big fella in the sophomore class and Foster the Phenom’s prep teammate with the C-Town Wolfpack is also getting his offseason grind on for All-Ohio Red (16U).
Marcus Bingham (Grand Rapids Catholic Central F) – Probably the most intriguing prospect in the Class of 2018, Bingham is balling out this spring for the Indy Heat alongside Johns.
Jacob Polakovich (Grand Rapids Catholic Central F) – Playing with his regular season running buddy Bingham and superstar Johns on the Indy Heat will only strengthen this sleeping giant’s game.
Mason Pline (Fowler F) – Plying his trade in the Hoosier State this spring, Pline is putting in work for the Indy Grind.
Tray Jackson (Detroit Western F) – Long, smooth and sweet-stroking small forward that Burney is quite sure is wowing all the Hoosiers hoop fiends with his SIR-GRIND-A-LOT tendencies on the wing in his Indy Grind uniform.
Deante “Spider” Johnson (Detroit Edison F) – Slithering his way to monster rebounds and highlight-reel slam dunks, Motown’s Spiderman continues to sizzle with Northwest Ohio’s Mean Streets squad.
