By: , May 28, 2020, 4:05 pm

Going around the horn across the state to check in with some intriguing hoopsters in the stacked-to-the-gills Class of 2022:


Max Burton (6-8 F Williamston) — Workhorse on the wing, will of champion. 

Mason Docks (6-0 G Williamston) — Wow factor by the boatload, best point guard in the area. (Pictured)

Ethan Dunn 6-10 F/C East Lansing) — Fastest-rising big in the area.


Mehki Ellison (Flint Carman-Ainsworth 5-10 G) — So much hustle and flow at the point it’s downright scary.

Carmelo Harris (Flint Beecher 6-0 G) — The next big thing in Beecher baller country.

Charlie Bell, Jr. (Flint Beecher 6-4 G) — Just scratching the surface on his potential, expect a breakout offseason and 2021 campaign.

Reichen Lund (Linden 6-0 G) — All the right moves just like his brother.


D.J. Voltz (Carrolton 6-3 G) — An electric playmaker and genuine shake-and-bake specialist.

Chris Smith (Arthur Hill 6-5 F) — Rugged frontcourt prospect, plays bigger than his size.

Damarquss Palmreuter (Reese 6-0 G) — Jolt of energy out of the backcourt, cagey competitor.

Bryson Huckeby (Freeland 6-4 G) — Super underrated prospect on the hardwood filling it up from the perimeter and equally so on the gridiron as a quarterback, venomous with the game on the line in either sport.


Jack Karasinski (Grand Rapids Catholic Central 6-6 G/F) — Top wing prospect on the state’s westside, ice in his veins.

Kyler Vanderjagt (Grand Rapids Northview 6-3 G) — Emerging two-sport star, TNT-like explosiveness shooting the rock, attacking the tin and chucking the pigskin from the pocket as a quarterback in the fall.

Grant Pikkart (Portage Central 6-5 G/F) — Brimming with ballerdom, coldblooded customer in every way, complete and balanced skill set.

Thomas Dillard (Kalamazoo Central 6-3 G) — Too-hot-to-handle, too-cold-to-hold type.

Brady Titus (Wyoming Tri-Unity Christian 5-10 G) — Fearless floor general, picture of consistency.

Ashton Atwater (Ostego 6-1 G) — Quick and efficient, pit bull mentality at the combo guard spot.

Tyler DeGroote & Ty Rykes (6-6/6-6 Schoolcraft F) — Typhoon of terror tandem of wings who can do it all; they can make it rain from deep, can guard multiple positions, can facilitate from the top of the key and finish at the rack.


DeCourion “DC” Temple (Ypsilanti Lincoln 6-7 F) — Active and athletic in the post, pogo-stick hops.

Luke Hanifan (Chelsea 6-2 G) — Something special brewing in Bulldog country with this cool-handed playmaker. … Will probably start at QB this fall for the school’s football squad.

Carson Cooper (Jackson Northwest 6-9 F/C) — Massive upside with this Nor-West Nasty in the frontcourt.


Trey Lewis (Ferndale 6-4 G) — About to go 0-100 in his recruiting, smooth operator tickling the twine.

Tharren “Squally” Hill (Detroit Pershing 6-0 G) — Tough as nails, definition of crafty.

Charles Turner (Detroit U-D Jesuit 6-5 G/F) — Straight cash money in the making, the next hoop star in Cubbyland.

Matt Coffey (Mt. Clemens 6-7 F) — Quiet assassin out of the frontcourt, does all the little things right, tremendous value as a recruit.

Cooper Craggs (Novi Detroit Catholic Central 6-7 F) — Most underrated prospect in the Catholic League, lethal weapon of an inside-outside threat.


Zach Carlson (Ishpeming Westwood 6-0 G) — The No. 1 underclassmen in the UP in ’20, lots of Great North swagger in his game.

Evan Solomon (Charlevoix 6-2 G) — Maybe the best player in his class you’ve never heard of, gets heated in a hurry.

Dylan Cragg (Grayling 6-4 G) — The straw that stirs the drink in G Town, an new g with an OG style of play.
