STATE CHAMPS! SCOUT TEAM: The Jump-Off >> Class of ’21 under-the-radar hoop gems

By: , June 3, 2020, 4:25 pm

Burney’s Top 25 Most Underrated Boys Hoops Recruits In The Class of 2021:

1 Omar Ziegler (Detroit King 6-foot-5 G) — Bulldog tenacity, attacks the rim as well as anyone in the state.

2 Jayden Nunn (Flint Carman-Ainsworth 6-2 G) — Smooth as silk, slasher and a shooter, out-of-this-world value as a recruit.

3 Dante Foreman (Wayne Memorial 6-6 F) — So much upside it’s scary.

4 Peter Nwoke (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s 6-8 F/C) — Most undervalued post prospect in the state.

5 Parker Day (Saginaw Heritage 6-7 F) — Quiet assassin on the wing, fundamentally sound, crafty and prone to volcanic scoring binges.

6 Javantae Randle (Detroit Douglas 6-10 C) — Best big guy you don’t know about but need to ASAP.

7 Owen Lobsinger (Flint Powers 6-6 G/F) — Snap, crackle, pop specialist with a quick trigger.

8 Kingsley Perkins (Ann Arbor Huron 6-7 F) — Active and aggressive out of the frontcourt, elite motor, finisher personified.

9 Jayland Randall (Harper Woods Chandler Park 6-5 G/F) — Feisty and full of flavor in the open court.

10 (tie) Jaylen Hodges (Bridgeport 6-4 G) — Best off-guard in the class you’ve never heard of but need to ASAP. 

10 (tie) Javier Whitaker (Hamtramck 6-0 G) — Best point guard in the class you’ve never heard of but need to ASAP.
