By: Jeff Dullack, October 1, 2016, 1:34 am
Some talented boys cagers around the state changed schools in the offseason. Here’s an alphabetical breakdown of the recent stops on the transfer train in Hoopsville. 
Harland Beverly (went from Detroit U-D Jesuit to Southfield Christian) – Jesuit’s top JV player last year, natural scorer
Marcus Bingham (went from Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills to Grand Rapids Catholic Central) – Burney says, ‘Bada Bing, Bada Bing…..Ching-Ching!!!” to this add-on for the CC cage crew
Sam Cornette (went from Grandville to Muskegon) – Sam He Is!!!……….’Nuff Said!!!
Taylor Currie (went from Worthington Christian Ohio to Clarkston) – Super soph big fella with
significant upside and about to go all BLAKE GRIFFIN on the OAA
David DeJulius (went from Detroit Edison to Detroit East English Village) – About to go all CHRIS PAUL on the PSL
Zavion Godwin (went from Roseville to Detroit East English Village) – “Z-Factor” will be “X-Factor” in the EEV lineup this winter…..please make a note
LaTrayvion (Tre) Jackson (went from Ypsilanti Lincoln to Detroit Western) – A wonder-in-the-making on the wing
Jalon Kelso (went from Pontiac to Walled Lake Northern) – The definition of smart, crafty and efficient in the backcourt
Taylor McCaskill (went from Troy Athens to Detroit Edison) – Southpaw slugger in the backcourt, plays with a chip on his shoulder, grinder with grit and grace in his arsenal
Pierre (P.J.) Mitchell (went from Detroit Loyola to Detroit Edison) – One of the best floor generals in the state regardless of class size
Karl Patrick (went from Southfield to North Farmington) – Joining his former-now-new-again teammate Amauri Hardy in RaidersNation for another shot at the crown
Jalen Tobias (went from Detroit Renaissance to Detroit Cass Tech) – Fierce in the frontcourt, might turn into the most feared post player in the PSL by the end of his prep hardwood career in two years
