By: , January 24, 2020, 2:57 pm

The top players in the 2022 class in Michigan: 

1 Emoni Bates (Ypsilanti Lincoln F) — Best player in America, bar none.

2 Ty Rodgers (Grand Blanc F) — Perfect combo of power and finesse on the wing.

3 Javaughn Hannah (Mt. Clemens G) — Game-changer in the open court who always makes a splash anytime he steps on the floor, the definition of a finisher.

4 Fletcher Loyer (Clarkston G) — Mr. Automatic, most consistent, fundamentally-sound shooter in the state regardless of grade, natural scorer with ice in his veins.

5 Jack Karasinski (Grand Rapids Catholic Central F) — The quintessential west-side gritty gunner and rise-and-grind specialist.

6 Kareem Rozier (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s G) — Maybe the most pure point guard in the whole state, a true pace-setter and coach on the court.

7 Trey Lewis (Ferndale G) — Coldblooded playmaker, smooth operator on the perimeter, tough-nosed competitor.

8 Jason Drake (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s G) — Quiet assassin in a crowded, star-studded backcourt.

9 Orlando Lovejoy (Romulus Summit Academy G) — Straight up scoring machine, lots of sizzle to his game.

10 (tie) Rylan Bowens (Detroit Cass Tech F) — Crazy upside, blast of energy in the frontcourt, with a closer mentality.

10 (tie) Chansey Willis (Detroit King G) — Prototypical PSL guard, moxie, motor and a mountain of primetime playmaking ability.
